Keshi pearl & diamonds
Keshi pearl earrings set in 14k rose gold with diamonds.
Keshi pearls are a phenomenon in the world of pearls. It is a natural side effect of pearl cultivation. Forms on rare occassions in the mussel (in addition to "normal" pearls) The mossel spontaneously releases a piece of mother of pearl. These pieces of pearl are called "keshi pearls" or "keshi's."
Since keshi's form completely natural (and therefore is not initiated by man), they often have the characteristic jagged shape. Who chooses a piece of jewelry with a keshi pearl, thus chooses an unique jewel. Think about it: the chance that you'll ever find a completely identical keshi pearl is virtually nil. The quality of keshi pearls, just like regular pearls, vary greatly. The keshi's we use are among the top 3% of all keshi pearls in the world.
The textures in the gold are made by melting the gold. It takes a deft hand on the torch to get the desired results. It produces a ridged or ripply surface through controlled heating. The ridges are more pronounced than any other surface treatment. You can never get the same result twice, so a piece is always unique.
