About Seed Pearls

Pearls are a real-life example of something ordinary transforming into the extraordinary; unlike other gems, pearls begin as a foreign body, such as a grain of sand, embedded within the shell of a mollusk and covered in nacre. Seed pearls are known for their small size: they weigh less than .25 grain, or 12.5 milligrams. If you are seeking a truly unique creation, a keshi pearl is a small type of seed pearl that sometimes accidentally grows in addition to intentional cultured pearls. A seed pearl necklace made from these tiny pearls perfectly complements a little black dress. Seed pearl earrings, necklaces, brooches, rings, and bracelets have been popular since the early 19th century. Because of this, there is a variety of antique seed pearl jewelry available if you are hoping for something vintage. Reliable sellers on eBay offer a wide range of beautiful keshi pearls, seed pearls, and other pearl jewelry to complete your collection.
