Freshwater keshi pearls are pure nacre made by the oyster or mussel. They form in the existing pearl sack as another pearl is being coated with the nacre. I cell them "happy accidents." This necklace is 19' in overall length with a solid 18k gold plated sterling silver oyster on the half shell front and center, a spring ring safety clasp and my shop logo charm. I used double strong silk in stringing and hand knotting these pearls. Custom design and made in charleston. Coordinating single keshi pearl drop earrings on 18k gold vermeil ear wires are included.
