*The seed pearls found when harvesting the Japanese Akoya oysters resemble poppy seeds, which in Japanese is called keshi. These unique pearls who are named after poppies are also known as "gifts of the mermaids''. Freshwater pearls are sometimes called keshi pearls, but true keshi pearls are saltwater pearls from Japanese Akoya Oysters. More than 500 years ago, keshi pearls were very popular among the Maharajahs of India and with the princesses of the Arabian kingdoms. Found in their surrounding seas, these “gifts of the mermaids,” were worn with pride and associated with royalty.
