Let’s dive deeper into the world of pearls!
What is Baroque?
Baroque is used to describe a period of lavish art, architecture, and music that was popular in Europe during the 17th and 18th centuries. The word actually comes from a Portuguese term for a pearl with an irregular shape, which is barocco. It also has similar origins in Spanish and Italian.
Pearls are considered Baroque when they have an unconventional shape, rather than traditional pearls which are spherical. No two baroque pearls are the same, making them ideal for a unique piece of jewelry.
