Baroque pearls come in many different shapes and colors.
Their shape is irregular because the pearl farmer uses natural mantle tissue from a mollusk to "seed" the mollusk into growing an irregularly shaped pearl.
Round pearls are the result of the mollusk being seeded with a round mother-of-pearl bead.What Colors are Available?
Freshwater pearls can be naturally found in shades of white, pink, plum, peach and purple.
Pearls are dyed to get the many other beautiful colors available today for making jewelry.
