The baroque pearl necklace is a timeless, foundational piece that everyone should have in their jewelry wardrobe. Each luminous pearl is unique, grown in the waters off Japan until it’s a plump little pearlescent soufflé. Perfect for layering with chunkier pieces, the pearl has a 5mm bail so you can slip it onto any other chain.
Our favorite historical pearl story is of Cleopatra’s competition with her Roman lover, Marc Antony, to see who could throw the most extravagant dinner party. Certain that he would outdo the Pharaoh, Antony piled rare meats on his grand dining table and poured expensive wines for his guests. But Cleopatra was unfazed.
Pearls were so valuable in the late Roman Republic that a single one ensured her victory. While her guests were drinking and dancing and enjoying her lavish party, Cleopatra caught the eye of Marc Antony, took a single pearl from one of her earrings, dissolved it in a bit of vinegar and drank it down, its incredible worth reduced to nothing in a single, indulgent sip.
Each hand selected pearl is roughly 1 inch or 22mm long, with our handcrafted 14k solid gold bail threaded onto a 14k solid gold, 22 inch curb chain.
Why Solid Gold ✨
Solid gold is the best option if you:
1. Want to wear your piece forever or pass it down as an heirloom. Solid gold will last for centuries without degrading.
2. Want to invest in jewelry as an asset rather than an accessory. Gold traditionally appreciates in value and can always be melted down and made into a new piece
Unlike many brands, our gold is never hollow - it is always 100% solid, cast using the lost wax method, meaning there is a lot more gold in each piece.
Our gold is 100% certified recycled and each piece is handcrafted here in New York.

When will my piece ship? 💌
We keep a small inventory of some pieces - please check above the 'Add to Cart' button to see if your piece is in stock.
If not, it will display the estimated ship time so that we can custom make it for you in our NYC studio.
What does Traditional Retail Price mean? 💵
Excellent question! The majority of brands sell through stores like Neiman Marcus, Net-a-Porter and local boutiques - this is called wholesaling.
The standard formula is that retailers can purchase jewelry at 50% off the RRP. They then double that price and sell it on to you. There is also an agreement that the brand cannot undercut the retailers and offer lower prices on their own website, so no matter where you shop, it's always the same price.
We do not wholesale our solid gold pieces - we make them in NYC to order.
This means we can offer an amazing price without the retail markup. It's that simple :)

People are always curious about how jewelry companies price their pieces - how can that tiny little piece be worth $3000? I was one of those skeptical people until I founded...
