Baroque pearls make super l'art nouveau as this pearl merman photographed by my son, Andrew, at the Natural History Museum in New York City. These objects are often combined with enameled metal, other loose pearls and mounted as pendants on golden chains.

Some irregular pearls or baroques are very large, weighing an ounce or more. A well-known example is the Hope Pearl, which weighs three ounces. These monster pearls sometimes assume odd shapes, such as clasped hands, the body of a man, lion, or other animals, etc.
