Baroque Pearl Necklaces are one of our favourite items of jewellery. Did you know that fewer than 10% of cultured pearls are round? Mother Nature creates the remainder in a range of shapes, the most common of which is baroque. A baroque pearl is organically shaped and asymmetric, and may have either smooth or rippled surfaces. We find these organic shapes irresistible, very tactile, and as each pearl is unique they make a very personal item of jewellery.

Baroque Pearls can be found in the natural range of pearl colours: white, pink, lavender and black, and of course you can also dye the pearls to a specific colour, such as the Cranberry Red Baroque Pearl Jewellery Set below.

A large Baroque Pearl can be less expensive than a similarly sized Round Pearl, due to the relative scarcity of perfectly formed round pearls. Therefore when seeking a statement piece Pearl Necklace with large pearls Baroque Pearl Necklaces offer great value for money.

Similarly if you are seeking a chunky pearl bracelet with large organic shaped pearls then Baroque Pearl Bracelets are the perfect choice.

Baroque Pearls are once again in fashion, due to their natural appearance and unique shapes. This resurgence in interest in Baroque Pearls should not be a surprise, they were a feature of Victorian and Art Nouveau jewellery, one of the most famous pieces being the Canning Jewel, a pendant featuring a Merman, created in the middle of the 19th Century and now on show at the V&A in London.

Pearl Necklaces – How To Shop Online

The number of people choosing to shop online is increasing rapidly, and the latest IMRG Sales Index shows 16.3% growth year on year, with fashion accessories up a massive 48%

Whether you are seasoned online shopping pro, or just dipping your toe in the water, we will try in this blog post to provide you with some helpful tips to help you choose the perfect pearl necklace and examples of great value beautiful necklaces, that can be purchased safely in the UK with secure consumer protection and return guarantees.

One of the first things to decide upon is the correct length of necklace, we are not all the same size and shape, and your choice of necklace needs to reflect this.

Pearl Necklaces

The picture above gives a rough indication of where a necklace might fall on an ‘average’ person, but of course we are not all average, if you’ve a larger bust or necksize you will need to increase the length in inches to achieve a similar drop.

One of the next questions to consider is size of pearl, and our rough guidelines are as follows:

  • Choker Length (16″ and under) – we recommend small & medium sized pearls  5-7mm
  • Princess Length (17-19″) – most sizes of pearl will look great
  • Matinee Length (20-26″) – we would recommend 6mm and upwards
  • Opera Length (26-36″) – we would recommend a minimum of 6mm pearls, but also caution in choosing pearls larger than 10mm as the weight of pearls vs silk string strength may be too great (note we would make Coin Pearls an exception to this rule as they are flatter and hence lighter).
  • Rope Length (36″+) – choose medium sized pearls
