baroque pearl

Baroque pearls are the pearls with irregular shape.

Freshwater pearls are more often to be baroque because they are not bead nucleated as saltwater pearls. The mantle-tissue nucleated freshwater pearls tend to be developed in different irregular shape.

Baroque akoya pearl differs from that of a freshwater pearl.  Semi-baroque Akoya pearl has a water-drop shape or pear shape. Baroque akoya pearl has small tail behind a rounded front.

The amount of time cultured will increase the thickness of nacre and the luster. At the same time, it will also increase the chance of producing a baroque pearl.
