This is the shape of the tip of my round-nose pliers. Depends on the style of jewelry that you make, the finer the tip the more delicate of the wire work you can make. When selecting your round-nose pliers, try closing the pliers and while holding the handles, examine whether the two tips align properly. I had bought a pair of cheap round-nose pliers in the past which I found out later that they don't really align perfectly. So, make sure you check this feature before you buy it. As long as the tips align properly, even a cheap round-nose plier should be safe for purchase.
