Baroque pearl

What are Baroque pearls?

Baroque pearls are some of the most fascinating organic gems available on the jewelry market.  A baroque pearl is any pearl that is asymmetrical in shape as opposed to the classic round shape. Any irregularly shaped pearl is known as baroque, and shapes can range from minor aberrations to distinctly oval, curved, pinched, or lumpy shapes. A pearl which might otherwise be considered an oval, button or drop pearl but which is not symmetrical in nature, would be considered semi-baroque. Though baroque look different from traditional pearls, they have their own unique beauty.

Additionally, during the 1930s to 1940s, some brooches were made with clips rather than pins on the back and were called clips.
