    Question Do you guys love baroque pearls or round pearls?

    Hi everyone,
    I have a question.
    Do you guys love baroque pearls or round pearls? I saw many people posted some photos about pearl jewelry. More about baroque pearls.

    I love both, but the older I get, the more I appreciate the uniqueness of baroque pearls. Plus, they scream real, while perfectly round pearls could go either way.

    I like both but I love round pearls with incredible luster that makes them look like they have light emanating from within.

    I wish there were better grading for baroque pearls, like near-round, then not-very-baroque, then really baroque-funny-shaped, and finally too-wierd-looking-to-be-pretty. :-)

    I love the uniqueness and the colors I see in fine baroque pearls and non-rounds. I love rounds too, but there is something surreal about a baroque pearl with hard-to-describe colors.

    Baroque and ringed pearls for me. The shapes are more interesting and they get lovely colours that vary over the contours.

    Baroques and ringed pearls, yes please, love the individuality and that they are often more colorful. Mrsadm, you made me laugh, you're so right, no easy way to categorize baroques!

    Same for me-- I love the unique shapes and often-greater iridescence of baroques. I particularly love fat-bottomed drops.
    I also love near-round/slightly oval shapes when drilled the long way.

    I'm less fond of eggy or button shapes, or very pointy drops in a strand. Not very fond of knobs.

    I love baroques and circle baroques in a necklace and I like High Buttons in large 12+mm studs, round for smaller. I love drop shapes for dangles and a classic teardrop yum ! Keshi...in everything

    Oh yeah, I love the colors and luster of some baroques but not others, and I love some shapes but not others. I love roundish and circled pearls and drops. I don't like very pointy pearls or ones with little knobbers or pits. But some perfectly round pearls have colors or surfaces that I like and some I don't like, too.
