Not Just any Pearl

The Mikimoto pearl house has spent decades seeking and matching perfectly symmetrical, flawless round pearls for its jewelry designs, but its newest collection highlights asymmetrical, unusually textured baroque pearls. The 25-piece Baroque Couture group, $9,200 to $46,000, features one-of-a-kind creations designed to enhance the shape, color, and luster of each unique pearl. The new pieces, unveiled in Mikimoto stores internationally in February, portray the large baroque pearls, some of which are bigger than a grape, in a bold, stylish image. The ring, shown, is set with nearly three carats of diamonds. (888.701.2323, www.mikimotoamerica.com)
