Baroque magic

Imperfection can be beautiful — and unique. Oddly-shaped baroque pearls, which are very different from the much sought after ivory, rounded and smooth pearls, are creating waves nowadays. They are appearing in statement jewellery pieces by India’s leading jewellery brands, being used independently or paired with precious stones. In their natural or cultured variants, they come in a variety of hues like grey, rose, white and more. Definitely a new look that your jewellery box could do with.
