    Default Baroque Tahitians?

    Is it wrong that the circle and drop tahitian pearls are more to my liking than the round ones? I love the colors in the circle pearls. I don't know if it is because I'm new to Ts and haven't refined my tastes or what. Can anyone relate?

    Totally! I love baroques and circles, not only in Tahitians.

    There is no right and wrong in pearls-- wear what you love!

    I think circled and baroque T's have much more interesting colors than the perfectly round ones. It's not wrong at all. I like them better, too.

    Definitely ! I love them...one of the times when a few fish bites isn't the end of the world! I just got two huge pair of circled drops that are a bit chewed but great colour - I love them, wear yours with pride !!

    TXPearlLV, I completely agree! I've discovered that baroques, drops, and circles are just more appealing to me. Maybe because the colors look more intense? I also prefer these shapes as they appear less "formal" and therefore more suited to my casual, everyday style. If you can call it "a style"!

    I'm with you TXPearlLV - I have a few key pieces with rounds but it's the baroques, circles and drops that really get me excited. I love their quirky nature and coming across those special weird ones. Luckily they're on the "cheaper" side ;-)

    It is never wrong to prefer what you prefer. There is no "right" taste. I prefer my spinels with more silk than ideal, my cars smaller and cheaper, my sapphires lighter, my tea weaker and so on. Guess what? That is what appeals to me most and make me happier.

    Embrace the cool shapes, beautiful colours and quirkness of your Tahitians. They are my favourite as well. And if your taste changes in time, that is cool as well.

    I hate to disappoint people, but I am the least fabulous person in the world. I am pretty much of a frump. But I am happy with my frump and pearls.
