South Sea Baroque Pearls
A baroque pearl is often seen as the modern alternative to the classic pearl. The term Baroque Pearl refers to any shape of pearl that is not regular, such as round, drop or button. The baroque shape is made by the oyster unevenly depositing the nacre around the nucleus of the pearl. Every baroque pearl is unique in its shape and size and often has a very organic look to it. These freeform shape make them extremely popular in modern jewellery design, and in high demand among designers.
A form of Baroque Pearl is the Keshi Pearl. A Keshi Pearl is produced by the oyster rejecting the nucleus or seed that has been inserted in to oyster as part of the pearl culturing process. However, once the seed is rejected the oyster continues to make layers of nacre and produce a pearl. The Keshi Pearl therefore is mainly composed of nacre, producing a pearl extremely high in lustre, and are the most appreciated baroque pearls available.
