There are two main types of pearls; round (considered to be a traditional pearl) and baroque.
Baroque pearls are some of the most interesting and beautiful pearls on the market.
Known for their shape, baroque pearls are those that are not round, but irregular or abstract in shape.
Shapes can range from minor to more pronounced irregularities. Most cultured freshwater pearls are baroque because freshwater pearls are mantle-tissue nucleated instead of bead nucleated.
Baroque pearls make a wonderful choice for clients who want something a little bit different and would like to express themselves through a bolder and more unique pearl jewellery piece.
