This is a delicate, airy necklace made of two strands (of unequal length) of white freshwater cultured pearls, they are flat petal-like keshi pearls, small off-round potato pearls, and minute seed pearls. The strands are connected with sterling silver chain and an oval trigger clasp. A pair of delicate earrings completes the set. This necklace and earring set will make a wonderful bridal set.
Pearls are thought to represent innocence and integrity. A favorite with brides. It is the birthstone for June. Keshi or petal pearls are a by-product of the pearl culturing process. They are formed when the 'seed' or 'nucleus' that is used to start the pearl forming process is rejected by the host. This rejection produces pearls without nuclei, and they are 100% nacre, accounting for the greater luster seen in keshi pearls. The name keshi comes from Japanese word for poppy seed.
