Baroque pearls have gained immense popularity in the year 2007. Baroque pearls have got the public attention in 2005 and it continued to gain popularity in 2006 and now in 2007, it is a hot trend in all the fashion conscious countries.

Baroque pearls are so called because of their irregular and unpredictable shapes. Baroque, or 'barroco' in Portuguese, is a pearl which has irregular and non spherical shapes and have elaborate patterns. And it is from here, the Baroque styles of the 17th and 18th century derived their name. Initially Baroque pearls grew naturally and because of their non confirming shapes were discarded by pearl merchants.

And now, it is due to this iconoclastic shape, Baroque pearls have been re-discovered and used to make jewellery that are different and sometimes unique. Now Baroque pearls are grown like other cultured pearls. A Baroque pearl is formed when a pearl oyster secretes nacre and the nacre crystals get built in irregular layers and not the traditional process of concentric rounds.

In earlier times, this non concentric, non spherical shaped Baroque pearls were considered failed attempt and pearl farmers and merchants used to discard them. And now this non traditional, iconoclastic look seems to have taken the world by storm. People are trading Baroque pearls and buying jewellery studded or stringed with Baroque pearls.
