Cheap baroques have pits, cracks, holes, and miscolouration - flaws unacceptable today. These baroques have the uneven shape and surface of natural pearls, but not the defects of their poorer cousins.
Pendants with silver bails include a complimentary 18-inch sterling silver chain. Other pendants don't include a chain.

Pearl culturing gets ever more sophisticated but sometimes the mollusc just says 'blow this, I'm doing my own thing'.
Like teardrop pearls, baroques are measured across their width - not along their length.
Large baroques display a beautiful, shiny, silvery lustre. In natural daylight, they might exhibit the legendary 'pearl orient' - a kaleidoscope of colours that shimmer on the surface like the rainbow effect seen on a large soap bubble.
