7 Common Pearl Shapes & How To Style Them

Sure, perfectly round pearls may be the most popular and traditional shape, but did you know that there are at least another 6 shapes to choose from? This can make shopping for pearls a whole new adventure! You’ll notice that these more unusual pearl shapes are also considered quite unique. So, here’s what you need to know about buying and styling 7 common pearl shapes:

 

  1. Round Pearls: These are rare and valuable, while also holding a “classic” styling appeal. In fact, strings of perfectly round pearls can take you from the boardroom to the red carpet without breaking a sweat.

 

  1. Semi-Round Pearls: If worn on a necklace or bracelet, these semi-round pearls can often have the appearance of round uniformity. They are also beautiful in appearance and make unusual accompaniments for most day to night garments.

 

  1. Button Pearls: This shape has a round appearance from the front, but from the side, it appears flatter. A popular choice for stud earrings, cufflinks, and pendants, button pearls are often elegantly age-appropriate for both younger and more mature wardrobe choices.

 

  1. Oval Pearls: These are sometimes known as “rice” pearls and can often be considerably less expensive than most other shapes. They can, in fact, create a beautiful look when used as trimmings on garments or accessories.

 

  1. Drop Pearls: Often referred to as “teardrop” pearls, these are the perfect shape for statement pendants and center stones in necklaces. They have a distinct point at one end and can be very valuable – particularly the larger of these gems.

 

  1. Baroque Pearls: The most irregular shape by far, these pearls are non-symmetrical and have no specific appearance. It’s no wonder their demand has only increased in both mainstream and runway fashion. Designers are drawn to their wide variety of unique shapes!

 

  1. Circle Pearls: Often found in South Sea and Tahitian pearls, circle-shaped gems from the sea are distinguished by visible concentric circles or rings around the body of the pearl. It can look like a small ridge and truly make for unique, one-of-a-kind pieces of jewelry!
