What are Baroque Pearls?
Irregular pearls, referred to as baroque pearls, break the traditional view that pearls have to be perfectly round and smooth. Baroque pearls are for the modern woman who wants to make a statement and perfect for anyone who loves the quirky and unique. 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.
Omega Back Earrings
Made by Italian craftsmen, omega clip ear backs bear an uncanny resemblance to the Greek letter omega – Ω. When closed over the post the rounded end of the omega back holds to the ear via pressure for a secure fit.
