"Baroque pearls were highly prized by Renaissance jewelers, who saw them not as misshapen products of sea mollusks, but rather as unique and exquisite natural forms. They were often used in pieces of jewelry to form the bodies of figures. A superb example is a piece from the 16th century known as the Canning Jewel (Victoria and Albert Museum, London), in which a large baroque pearl is used for the torso of a sea figure." Britannica
