    I have baroque, round and near-round Tahitians and love them all.

    I love circled Ts for their crazy colours, fat drops for pendants and oval/near rounds in strands for their value.

    I can't pick. I love all the shapes. But they have to have amazing color and a shiny surface.

    I love smooth ones~
    I bought a circled pendant once...but I just cannot get use to the shape...though the circled ones usually have the best overtone...

    I don't like solid black pearls. By that, I mean the perfectly matched, solid color, very dark Tahitians. When I discovered that T's came in all sorts of different colors, sometimes all on the same pearl, then I fell in love with them.

    I love them all! It's kind of like asking which is my favorite child.

    I own baroque, round, circled, and drop Tahitians. Love them all, but I have to say that a pair of perfect drops for earrings can't be beat.
