Came across this South Sea Keshi pearl strand with pearls from 17 - 23.7 mm Australian Keshi.

Most beautiful strand I have ever seen

I totally see Elizabeth Taylor's Pearl Slaghoople in that necklace! Beautiful piece, Cees!

I have a distinct feeling I was offered these as loose recently .... if it was these.... the material is fantastic. I only passed because i find baroques slower than a few years ago. I wonder if other vendors have had the same reaction to baroques?

Seriously Wilma Flintstone. I can't even imagine what they look like in person.

There are enough bluish pearls also in keshi. White is a lot more rare

Wow, what fabulous shapes and overtones! I would love to see a neck shot for scale.

Agreed. I love those shapes and colors. I prefer these to perfect round strands by far. I wore my large white freshwater souffles today, and I'm thinking these SS keshi are about that size, although much heavier, I'm sure.
