Exploring Baroque Pearl Jewellery

Baroque Pearls

Baroque pearls are a beguiling organic shaped gemstone, especially Baroque pearl necklaces, which are becoming more sought-after pieces of pearl jewellery. This is due to the interesting and unique organic shape of the pearls. Baroque pearl necklaces are ideal for people looking to make a bold statement in a subtle modern way.  


What are Baroque Pearls? 

Baroque pearls are uniquely un-uniform in shape, with an attractive organic shape. As no two baroque pearls are the same they are the ideal pearl of choice to make a distinctive piece of jewellery. We love using them for the more nature based designs, as they remind us of beachcombing - finding that organic shaped pebble that you can’t stop rubbing in your pocket. The surface of a baroque pearl is uneven and textured, refracting the light off the uneven surface to create a luminous depth and shine. Originating from the Portuguese word 'Barocco,' which means imperfect, the term baroque is used to describe an imperfect, unusual-shaped pearl which used to be considered the rejects of the pearl world.

In many of our distinctive pearl designs, the unique shape of our hand selected pearls are carefully matched to the design. We use baroque pearls in our Baroque hand knotted pearl necklaceBaroque hand knotted pearl necklace – claudiabradby  and our Baroque hand knotted pearl bracelets, Baroque hand knotted pearl bracelet – claudiabradby to create a unique, timeless favourite. As these are knotted by hand, and due to the pearl having a varied shape, the jewellery may, at first, appear a bit kinked.  This will fade away on being worn, and warmed by the skin.

Since the early 1900s, style icons have worn pearls, such as Lina Cavalieri, a famous opera singer; Coco Chanel, the founder and namesake of the Chanel brand and iconic Marilyn Monroe, bringing us to today's red carpet stars such as Sam Smith, Sarah Jessica Parker, Kiera Knightley and Emma Watson.
