If you love pearls, pearl earrings will be an essential part of your wardrobe.

Pearl earrings can be classical such as perfectly round shaped pearl earrings set as studs in your choice of white south sea cultured pearls, Tahitian black cultured pearls, Philippine gold cultured pearls, Japanese akoya cultured pearls, and Chinese freshwater pearls. In these types of pearl earrings, the studs are set in 18 or 9 or 14 carat gold in yellow, white or rose gold or in sterling silver if you prefer.

Aquarian Pearls, our valued Australian partner, also offer pearl earrings designed with pearls other than perfect traditional rounds. Nature gives us a variety of shapes in the pearl culturing process, these are oval, drop, button, circle, baroque and semi baroque, and keshi.

Keshi Pearls

Keshi are the non nucleated pearl that nature gives us when the host oyster rejects its nucleus and creates a naturally formed pearl anyway, so one could say, the natural by product of the culturing process.

Keshi pearls make fabulous earrings for clients who wish for something non traditional and more free form as keshi earrings are an interesting and different shape. Usually in pearl earring manufacturing, they choose keshi pearls which are flat baroque shape and being so lustrous and nacreous, they make beautiful and stunning pearl earrings.

When they use drops and oval shaped cultured pearls in their pearl earring manufacture, they are generally dropping down from the ear lobe and can be enhanced and manufactured with a wide range of accompanying diamonds, gemstones, semi precious stones and metals. Princess Diana, Princess Katherine, Jackie Kennedy Onassis, Liz Taylor, Kamal Harris, Keira Knightley, Oprah Winfrey, Taylor Swift, Maria Callas, Julie Bishop, Julia Gillard, Lucy Turnbull, Carla Zampatti, Coco Chanel, the list could go on and on of iconic women in politics, entertainment, fashion and royalty who have been pictured and photographed in their pearl earrings.

When they use button shaped pearls in their pearl earrings, they can often use a much larger sized pearl due to the fact that they are flatter shaped than a round pearl to make stud pearl earrings for everyday wear.

Baroque Pearls

Baroque pearl earrings are very popular for clients who are looking for a completely unique, individual and one off pair of pearl earrings that are totally unlike anyone else’s. Baroque pearl earrings can be made in as studs, drops, dangles and paired with gemstones and diamonds and semi precious stones and various precious metals in their designs.

Circled pearl earrings are also very popular. Circle pearls come in drop, button, round, off round, oval and bell shapes. They have concentric circular rings around them due to their host oyster’s movement within the tidal waters during their culturing process. Pearl earrings with circle pearls are a great way of achieving the classical pearl earring look with a more casual feel and are suitable for wear with all types of clothing. These circle pearl earrings are the most affordable and make for a very chic look. Half of the pearl earrings they manufacture at Aquarian Pearls are set with circle south sea pearls .

Pearl earrings manufactured with semi baroque cultured pearls are usually drops or ovals with a naturally formed baroque top giving an unique edge to their appearance.
