Before we have a look at the different types of pearl jewellery you get, let’s have a look at the different types of pearls and what types of jewellery they are used on.
Baroque pearls: This term often also refers to the shape of pearls. These are pearls that have the most character and are irregular in shape. The irregular shape is referred to as the baroque shape. Baroque pearls are the cheapest of all the pearls due to their odd shape.
Black pearls: These are bold pearls that are naturally coloured black and come from the Black-lip or La Paz Pearl oyster or Rainbow-lipped oyster.
Conch Pearls: Conch pearls are rare pearls produced by giant conches. They are pink in colour and they have a flame pattern on their surface.
Cultured Pearls: Cultured pearls are pearls that have had some human interaction when it comes to the way in which they are made. Humans have manipulated the shape of these pearls. Humans open the shell and place an object inside that changes the shape of the pearl depending on what they are trying to create. While the object is in the shell, nacre coats the object and the quality of the pearl increases as the nacre thickens.
Dome Pearl: A Dome pearl is a pearl grown around a mother of pearl nucleus on the side of the shell.
Faux pearls: This type of pearl has been completely man made and you will not find faux pearls in a natural environment.
Freshwater Pearls: Freshwater pearls are sought after because they are made with zero human intervention. These pearls are made inside a mussel that is found in either a freshwater pond or lake. Freshwater pearls are usually pastel in color, either white or pink and they are either round or teardrop shaped. Freshwater pearls are most commonly found in parts of the USA, Japan, and China.

Mother of Pearl: The term Mother of Pearl refers to the coating that is found on the top of pearls. The function of this coating is to act as a protection from parasites but is not to be confused with the nacre. The Mother of Pearl is instantly recognizable because of to its bright glow.
Pearl: A pearl is a growth that forms inside the shell of a mussel. It forms around irritants to protect the body of the creature.
