Keshi* Pearls are a kind of flat pearl that forms without a nucleus, so instead of creating a spherical shape, the nacre forms a disc. No two pairs are the same. I contrast these unique shapes with the preciseness of faceted semi-precious stones in the center. The ear wires are sterling silver plated with 18k gold (vermeil), left sterling where they rest in the ear, and they clip closed in the back.
Most styles are approximately: 1 1/4" long x 5/8" wide
*Keshi is a Japanese word also meaning "poppy" (ケシ, 芥子).
