We are direct importers of Japan Kasumi pearls and invite you to visit our "About the Pearls" section of our website for more information on these rare pearls.
Keshi is a Japanese word that means "poppyseed". In salt water culturing, keshi pearls are unplanned pearls, often the baroque shaped pearl result of a rejected nucleus. In fresh water cultivation they are generally the result of a second harvest from a pearl producing mollusk.
