    This will probably sound weird, but I'm finding that I prefer baroque pearls as I get older because they look real, and really good perfectly round ones look fake. I'm still amazed at the people who think my most expensive strand of pearls (the natural white Hanadama rope) are fake because they look too good compared to the other pearls I'm wearing.

    I LOVE any "not round" pearls best ... rings and circles, rosebuds, "aliens", penguins, keshi of course LOL. The play of light, colors and luster gets me every time!

    Lady_Disdain, we respectfully and heartly disagree ... fabulous you ARE

    I'm so glad I'm not alone. I think I'm just too casual for the fancy round ones. I just adore the funky shapes and colors of the circles. The drops are as close as I think I'll ever get to round. But they are all lovely.

    I usually prefer round ones, must be the OCD in me. However, I'm beginning to appreciate baroque and circled tahitians. The color play seems to be stronger in these. Maybe I should consider a rope of baroques, hmmm...
