Keshi pearls, can be formed in a couple of different ways. One way a keshi can form occurs when the oyster rejects the beaded nucleus and an irritant makes its way inside the oyster. Layers of nacre are secreted over this irritant and a keshi is formed. Also what can occur is that the implanted tissue fractures and forms separate sacs, which in turn can form a keshi. Again it is important to note that the Japanese Akoya keshi is a by-product of the culturing process, but the keshi itself is 100 % nacre unlike other cultured pearls, which contain a beaded nucleus.
