When to wear Baroque Pearls

November 13, 2014 by Melissa

A classic pearl is characteristically a perfect round or drop shape. There is, however a growing trend for wearing baroque pearls, which are pearls which are not uniform in shape, giving them a truly unique look and being completely one of a kind.

Back in the Renaissance times, baroque pearls were much sought after as they were appreciated for their uniqueness and individuality and people are beginning to see this merit once again.

Chunky Baroque Pearls

Baroque pearls are absolutely perfect for those who have an individual style. You can combine a chunky baroque pearl necklace with a plain top for a funky and contemporary look. Go for totally contrasting colors and make a real feature of your beautifully unique necklace.

A Natural Pair of Earrings

Another bonus of wearing baroque pearls is that they can give a much more natural look. If you are one of those people who like to use jewelry which really looks like it has come from nature instead of the almost too perfect look of a ‘perfectly shaped’ pearl, baroque pearls are for you. Baroque pearls can work especially well as a pair of delicate dangling earrings, accentuating their natural beauty. They will reflect light in a completely different way than a round pearl, and will be instantly noticeable.

As a Pendant

The beauty of using a baroque pearl as the main stone in a pendant necklace is that it doesn’t have to look like a part of a set. The exquisite pearl is allowed to speak for itself and shine on its own, being perfectly framed by the v-shape of the chain.

Sometimes an unusual shape has a much bigger effect than something that is perfectly uniform, and this is certainly the case with the baroque pearl. Depending on the look that you want to create, baroque pearl jewelry can be the ideal solution.
