2 . Keshi Pearls
What gemstone is a Diamond alternative to choose for an engagement ring? - here is another beautiful gemstone, which actually not a stone, but a form of natural Art, created by nature - Keshi Pearl.
How any pearls are created? Pearls are formed when a mollusc produces layers of nacre around some type of irritant in its shell. There are many different type of Pearls, but my favourite ones are Keshi Pearls. Why - here are 2 reasons:
1. Keshi pearls are 100% NATURAL and Organic.
Natural pearls form around an irritant, nucleus placed in the oyster’s soft mantle tissue. Layers of coating, called 'nacre', is deposited until a lustrous pearl is formed.
Natural Keshi pearls form with no nucleus inside and those pearls are 100% pure nacre. That nacre is a precious material and for this reason, they are sold by weight like gemstones. They also form into various organic shapes, giving the jewellery creators fantastic ideas for unique styles and designs.
2. Keshi pearls are greatly LUSTROUS.
Because these Pearls have 100% solid-nacre composition - this gives them a special lustrous and shimmering surface quality. Keshi Pearls shimmer and shine with amazing lustre. The lustre of Keshi pearls remain unchanged over long period of time.
They have a range of amazing natural colours such as white, peach, pink, gold, metallic, plum and others.
So each of these Pearls is so unique and one of a kind - it's absolutely no doubt a fantastic Diamond alternative for a very special Engagement ring.
The Romans valued pearls so highly, they created a law forbidding anyone except people of high rank, from wearing them.
In ancient stories, pearl is associated with faithfulness, friendship, loyalty and purity.
Pearls rank among the most popular gems in the world.
