At the End of the Rainbow: Pearl Colors


Pearl Colors


There are many precious gemstones that can display a rainbow of color; for example, Sapphire and Tourmaline can be found in EVERY color of the rainbow. Did you know that pearls can be seen in almost every color too? It's true! 

There is the exception of red - no pearls have ever been seen in a true, fire-engine red (unfortunately!) but we do have amazing intense pink colors that approach reds today. 

That said, let's take a look at the gorgeous array of colors available today!  


Pearl Colors: Lavender and Purple Pearls 


Lavender / Purple Pearls

Lavender pearls are one of three natural Freshwater pearl colors that the Freshwater pearl mussel produces. A soft, feminine color, Lavender pearls are a fashionable and romantic way to add a splash of unique color to any jewelry collection.
Meaning of Lavender Pearls: Lavender pearls are used to symbolize royalty, nobility, wisdom, creativity, artistry, love, compassion and complexity.
