Keshi pearls are quite unique in the way they are formed, when compared to the standard method of pearl formation.
there are two ways that the pearl can form, none of which has to do with the “usual” process as described above. The first way that the keshi pearl can form occurs when the oyster rejects and spits out the substance – the nucleus – before the development of the pearl has had the opportunity to finish. The second possibility is that the nucleus fractures and forms two separate pearl sacs – that is, circles of nacre – neither with a nucleus. Eventually, one or two nucleus-less pearls will usually form.
Keshi pearls also come in a variety of different colors and shades, and are known for their luster and uncommon orient. This is a result of their composition consisting of solid nacre. As the nucleus is eventually expelled by the oyster before the pearl is actually formed, the keshi pearl consists entirely of nacre.
Keshi Pearls are natural pearls from the farm environment. irregular in shape

The international term keshi means ‘poppy seed’ in Japanese, and is a reference to the small size of these pearls, which are seldom more than a few millimeters in diameter. Keshi pearls are popular because they are made of solid nacre and usually have a bright lustre.
