The Beauty of Pearls

Pearls are one of my favorite gemstones. I love pearls because of their subtle glow. They do not have the brilliance of a cut diamond or sapphire, but their luster is soft and beautiful. 

My favorite pearl shapes are round, baroque, rice, and teardrop. My favorite pearl colors are tahitian, gold, white/cream, pink, mauve, blue, and peach. Pearls look best when they coordinate with the wearer's complexion and clothing.

Here is a detailed picture of the white pearl necklace I made to go with the Angelina dress:
