Did you know the world’s most expensive pearl is a baroque pearl? Most people identify pearls as a flawlessly round-shaped gem that is used for jewelry making. But in reality, not all pearls are shaped perfectly round or have even surfaces. Baroque freshwater pearls are off-round shaped freshwater pearls for jewelry making. They come in various off-round shapes, including teardrop, elongated, asymmetric, and many more unimaginable varieties. Baroque pearls do not always have an even surface. But, each variety of baroque pearls is equally mesmerizing and irresistible.

Let us give you a tour of the vast world of these unique gems. You can buy any variety of baroque freshwater pearl beads here at Bead Traders at very reasonable prices.

What is a Freshwater Baroque Pearl?

The word baroque originates from the Portuguese word ‘Barocco’, which means something imperfect. In the case of pearls, the word signifies pearls that are irregular, asymmetric, and unevenly surfaced. Baroque pearls are highly varied pearls that come from freshwater. Although the original word means imperfect, baroque pearls are far from being imperfect. Their unique characteristic adds visual interest and value. These pearls are used widely all over the world for jewelry making.

Baroque pearls are found naturally and also artificially cultured at a wide level. Due to their bulk production and easy availability, baroque pearls are cost-effective as compared to the pearls cultivated from oceans and seas.

Interestingly, the world’s most expensive pearl is a baroque pearl. The pearl weighs 75 pounds and is valued at $ 100 million.

In general, the most expensive freshwater baroque pearls are the South Sea Pearls and the Tahitian Pearls. These pearls are obtained from black-lipped oysters, white-lipped oysters, and gold-lipped oysters.

Wearing Baroque Pearls as Jewelry

Baroque pearls have earned their reputation for jewelry all around the world. Their textured surface and uneven shape of baroque pearls give them the unique multi-tonal luster that makes them a perfect choice for luminous jewelry with a modern feel. Each baroque pearl is unique, so they are perfect for those who prefer unconventional jewelry.

How a person wears a baroque pearl and pairs it with their outfit to create a unique look boils down to their personal preferences. But we can provide you with a few pointers to get started with.

Baroque Teardrop Pearls

A pair of teardrop pearls make the most popular earring style with pearls. They enhance the overall look and draw attention to the face. A pair of baroque teardrop pearls can always be used to dress up a simple attire. Teardrop pearls also make a nice focal point pendant. You can use them to get a unique classy look.

Flat Coin Baroque Pearl

You can create a daily wearable look with a flat coin baroque pearl threaded onto a long silver chain.

Heart Baroque Pearl

These are flat pearls with rough, heart-shaped structures. They can be used independently as a pendant or may also be threaded in a silver chain like their flat counterpart. They will also make for an interesting pair of earrings.

Biwa Stick Baroque Pearls

These are a perfect choice for a breezy beach look, especially when you mix them with vibrant gemstones. These thin elongated pearls are also one of the popular pearl choices for making earnings.

Baroque Leaf Pearls

These can be used in multiple ways. They are typically used for cluster jewelry and not as a standalone pieces of jewelry.

Misshapen Baroque Pearls

A whole bunch of misshapen baroque pearl beads can be used to make a necklace to enhance your party or special occasion look. The most interesting thing about this is that no two necklaces made in the way will be identical. So, you will always look different than others.

Rice Baroque Pearls

If you are looking for a very cost-effective option, you can go for small pearls shaped like rice grains. These are used for cluster jewelry.

How Do You Recognize an Original Baroque Pearl?

Despite baroque pearl beads being abundantly available, the market is filled with fake baroque pearls. You do not want to pick cheap plastic in the name of pearl so you must know how to differentiate real baroque pearls from fake ones.

Temperature: You can tell the difference between a real and a fake baroque pearl just by picking the pearl in your hand. Pearls are naturally cold to the touch and they take a few seconds to warm up after you hold them in your hands. If the pearl feels cold when touched, it is most likely a real pearl.

Color Overtone: Real baroque pearls have a slight overtone of pink or green in their original color. Fake pearls are most likely to have a single color. The irregular shape of baroque pearls gives them a more multi-tonal look. So, you can try and find the difference by closely looking at the pearl.

Surface Texture: Baroque pearls are uneven i.e. they have a textured surface formed due to the layers of nacre. The fake ones have a smooth finish. This difference can be found by gently rubbing the surface of the pearl.

Weight: Real pearls have weight. The fake plastic pearls are typically lighter in weight. This can be another differentiator between a real pearl and a fake pearl.

Frequently Asked Questions About Baroque Pearls

Are Freshwater Baroque Pearls Real?

Of course, they are! Baroque pearls too are produced by oysters and they are as real as the shiny spherical pearl you consider the real pearl. They are also cultured at wide levels.

Why Are Baroque Pearls Comparatively Cheaper?

Baroque pearls are more affordable as compared to those traditional perfectly shaped lustrous pearls from the sea. The main reason behind this price difference is the availability. Baroque pearls are freshwater pearls and are found in abundance. Their high availability makes them a more affordable option. Sellers like the Bead Traders are able to provide you with these pearls at a more affordable rate because the purchase is made in bulk and the savings are passed to the customers.

Why are Some Baroque Pearls So Expensive?

Baroque pearls refer to a huge variety of pearls and not just a single type. Some of these pearls are costlier than others. Again the availability of the pearl becomes the major price determinant. For example, dark-colored pearls are more expensive as they are rare to find. The process of pearl culturing also affects its price. Ayoka pearls are costlier than simple freshwater pearls.

How Do I Choose Baroque Pearl Jewelry?

Baroque pearls are different from one another so it is important to choose the type that suits your preference and personality. You must also know that the price of the jewelry will depend on the type of pearl you choose as different baroque pearls are valued differently.

What is the Meaning of a Semi-Baroque Pearl?

This is not an actual classification. Baroque pearls that are ‘almost’ perfectly round in shape or have very little asymmetry are sometimes referred to as semi-baroque pearls. In reality, these are just baroque pearls.

How Do I Take Care of Baroque Pearl Jewelry?

Pearls are not very high-maintenance gems. You just need to keep them safe from harsh chemicals. When you plan to wear pearl jewelry, make sure you put them on after you have applied your makeup, hairspray, perfume, etc. Spraying any chemical can ruin your pearl jewelry.

Cleaning pearls is also very easy. You can keep them shining like your personality just by wiping them with soft cotton. While storing them too you should keep them wrapped in soft fabric, thus protecting them from any scratches.
