The organic structure of our carefully selected Baroque Pearls makes each heirloom piece truly unique, with infinite variations of vivid colour and shape – making your jewellery collection magnificently one of a kind, just like you.

In order to ensure the safety of our pearls while they make their journey to our makers, we choose to use hand-strung pearls to ensure their shine is protected - therefore, depending on the structure of your chosen style, it is sometimes possible to see small holes in our ‘gems from the sea’.

This is not a fault in the product, as this is a part of our artisanal production choice.
