Many people even if they are familiar
with pearls assume that all pearls are round. Unfortunately for these people,
they are missing an incredible world of baroque shaped pearls. There are
several classifications of sizes for pearls. The most common and well known are
perfectly round pearls, there are also near round pearls, tear drop pearls,
button pearls, oval pearls and baroque pearls.
For individuals who like a bit more character and personality in their pearl jewelry, baroque pearls are an exquisite choice. The definition of baroque pearls describes pearls that have an irregular shape. These pearls can be essentially any shape that is irregular and can also be described as having more curves and angles than other pearls.
Contrary to what many believe, the shape of a pearl has no bearing on if the pearl has been naturally formed or has been cultivated in a pearl farm. Erroneously, many people believe that irregular shaped pearls (baroque pearls) are natural pearls that have not been nucleated. This is simply not true. Most pearls sold in today’s marketing have come from pearl farms and the shape has nothing to do with it. Baroque pearls are formed by the layers of nacre being deposited; the shape of a baroque pearl is not cut or molded in any way by human hands.
