Although I do agree that the classic pearl has its undeniable charm and is an absolute must-have in any girl’s jewellery box, I also tend to disagree with pearl purists.
My last greatest discovery from the pearl market is somehow wrinkled, weirdly formed, and considered substandard by grading charts. Photos below were taken in Hong Kong. FYI, the black pearls in the background have 7mm in diameter!
Large baroque pearls are making a spectacular entry to the pearl industry. They are bold, unexpected, and have an outstanding luster. Enjoy their beauty!
