Marie’s most recent visit to a Pearl farm last year (before any restrictions) resulted in the most incredible first-hand insights into the farming of cultured pearls, which in turn has translated into our wonderful Pearl Category.
Our Pearls are perfect for every Jewellery Maker!
Where gemstones form as minerals underground, pearls are organic; they form within the soft tissues of a living creature; a mollusc.
The difference between natural and cultured pearls is most simply described as cultured pearls are given a helping hand by way of a mantle inclusion. 90% of today’s Pearl market is for cultured pearls.
Once the Pearls have been harvested, they go to market for sale. As buyers we all need to be aware that there is a mass flood of fake, cheap imports and need to be careful where we buy our Pearls from.
Keshi Pearls are a little bit of a phenomenon as a variety of Pearl, as they have no nucleus and are totally composed of nacre – better known to us mere mortals as Mother of Pearl so they have a wonderfully high lustre. These no-nucleus organic treasures have been farmed and sourced for centuries as they are hugely desirable. As far back as Marco Polo (& before) these true wonders have been used in jewellery making, decorations and amulets for centuries.
Composed from the second harvest, these stunning pearls carry the colours of the mother of pearl into their outer appearance and come in a wide assortment of shades of colours.
Our Keshi Pearl Strands host the deepest of colours including blue, pink, green and white, making them extraordinarily colourful and highly versatile.
Each Pearl measures approximately 6mm and come on a lovely, long 36cm strand with a 0.6mm drill hole and cost a staggeringly low price of only £8.50! Buy them whilst you can! Perfect for every Jewellery Maker.
