These beautiful rose wine colored natural keishi petal pearls are large, relatively thick and have an excellent luster. They are called petal pearls since each pearl is the shape of a flower petal. Each petal is unique in shape. These happen in nature when the pearl does not form a bead around the irritant in the oyster and grows into these unique shapes. They are entirely nacre the iridescent lining of the shellfish in which they are made. Their value, like round pearls, depends on their thickness, size, sheen and color. These are visually very dramatic.
I have beaded them into a double strand so the beads flip flop to give the necklace its beautiful shape. The inner strand n 17” an the outer strand is 18 1/2”. It is finished with a large sterling silver clasp. This is a dramatic statement necklace.
Pearl is the birthstone for June and 30th wedding anniversary stone.
Pearls are the iridescent substance that forms the lining of the shells of some fresh water and some salt-water mollusks. It is a secretion made by the layering the animal's mantle. This makes it light reacting which gives the pearl its sheen. The pearl has been known as a stone of sincerity and are the birthstone for June birthdays.
