What are Baroque Pearls?
Irregular pearls, referred to as baroque pearls, break the traditional view that pearls have to be perfectly round and smooth.

The word ‘baroque’ comes from the Portuguese term barroco which meant imperfect, coarse or uneven pearl. According to a 1694 French dictionary, baroque was defined as a word used to describe pearls that are imperfectly round.
