Did you know that all pearls are essentially cultured pearls? That's right, even those rare natural pearls are the product of an oyster's reaction to a foreign object. The difference is that cultured pearls are cultivated by humans, while natural pearls form completely by chance. Cultured pearls are created when a small piece of material is inserted into an oyster's body. The oyster then secretes a substance called nacre, which coats the foreign object and slowly forms a pearl. Depending on the type of oyster and the conditions in which it is raised, it can take anywhere from several months to several years for a pearl to reach full size. So, the next time you wear a pearl necklace or bracelet, remember that you're wearing the result of a truly fascinating process.

If you’ve ever wondered what a Keshi Pearl is, you are not alone! In a nutshell (or should I say oyster shell), here’s how keshis are created. These pearls form when a foreign object, like a piece of sand, gets lodged inside an oyster. In order to protect itself, the oyster coats the intruder with nacre, which is the same material that it uses to create its pearl. Most keshi pearls are small, but some can grow quite large, like the ones we use. Because they are 100% natural and 100% nacre, each keshi pearl is unique in shape, size and color. We love keshi pearls are special because they are completely natural and unprocessed.

Biwa stick pearls are a type of freshwater pearl that was originally produced by mussels native to Lake Biwa in Japan, but these days almost any stick-shaped pearl may be referred to as “Biwa” regardless of its country of origin. The pearls are small and have an irregular shape, which gives them a unique look. Biwa stick pearls are also said to have a calming effect, which may be due to their muted color palette, which includes shades of white, pink, and lavender. Biwa stick pearls are also said to be lucky charms, and they are often given as gifts. In addition to their beauty and purported magical properties, biwa stick pearls are also quite rare. This makes them even more special, and they are sure to be treasured by whoever is lucky enough to receive them.
