Baroque Pearls Are the New (Old) Jewelry Trend You’re About to See Everywhere
It feels weird to call something as classic as pearls a trend. But right now the iridescent orbs are having a serious moment, particularly the irregular iteration known as baroque pearls. (They were particularly popular during the Baroque Period of the 17th and 18th centuries, which actually got its name from the pearl, not the other way around.) In their 2019 incarnation, there’s something tactile and ethereal that feels thoroughly modern. Here, ten pieces that will make you want to…go for baroque. (We’ll see ourselves out.)
Whisper-light hoops with a little something extra? Yes, please.
Simultaneously elegant and playful (thanks to a four-inch chain that makes every turn of the head that much more fun).
These individual (and affordably priced) charms can be hooked onto earrings or stacked onto a necklace.
The extra surface area of these elongated babies equals more light-reflecting sheen.
A jewelry-box staple…with a slight twist.
We love how the gnarled gold loops mirror the pearl’s dimpled imperfection.

Not one for white? Welcome to the dark side.
In case your hands are feeling left out.
We’re getting a sunken-treasure vibe from these. (That’s not a complaint.)
Nothing against Grandma’s go-to strand, but we think we just found a new classic.
