Our AA+ Quality Freshwater pearls have what we call a “button” shape. They are flattened on the bottom with a rounded dome top – they remind me of little mushroom caps, actually.
AA+ Quality Freshwater Pearl “Button” vs. AAA Quality Round Pearl
The nice thing about the button earrings is that they’ll sit flush on the earlobe, which is very comfortable, while still looking perfectly round when viewed straight on. Check out this picture which illustrates the differences between our AA+ Quality Freshwater buttons, and our AAA Quality rounds.
