Silver pearl sparkles with an insinuation of cool blue or green on the surface of the pearl and is very close to pure white color. Women having olive or dark complexion with dark black brunette hair can carry silver overtone pearls well. The cool undertones on bright white pearl surface contrasts with dark hair tones and skin tones.
Silver overtone will blend well with yellow and white gold. Yellow gold creates elegant and nice contrast making the pearl look very classic. Yellow gold improves the cool undertone of the pearl making them appear whiter, brighter, and larger.
Ivory or cream tones look lovely on every skin tone but especially on strawberry and red head blondes. Cream pearl has an indication of French Vanilla over the pearls white surface. This warm overtone contrasts well with deep complexion and sparkles nicely. Ivory overtone adds deepness to the gem and reveals the shimmering glow concealed within the pearl.
Cream overtone is on the warm side, so complement this hue with yellow gold and not clash with it, even if posts or clasps of the earrings will not be seen the overall effect can dampen the innate warmth of pearls.
A pinkish hue on the white pearl surface is favorite amongst the ladies, since the start of pearl culturing. Shimmering pink color adds complexity and intensity on the pearls surface. This tone is suitable for ladies with fair or pale complexion and light hair.
The pearls warmth and sparkle will get improved with yellow gold clasp that can light up her complexion even more. On the other hand, white gold cools the rose overtones warmth thus dampening the pink hues on the surface.
Recommendation for white wedding dress
Silver and silver rose over tones with white gold clasp is ideal for a bride with medium tone complexion and white wedding gown. If her jewelry is yellow gold then you can opt for yellow gold clasp. Rose and cream will contrast with the wedding dress and color wise look a little bit on the offside.
