The Meanings of Colored Pearl Colors!

Colored Pearls are Wonderful.

I can’t stop looking at them. They’re simply Beautiful! All the Hue Variations, Luster, Shine and Endless Assortment of Sizes are just Breath-Taking!

But what does it all mean? Do certain Pearl Colors have Special Meanings and Associations linked to them?

Believe it or not, the Color of Pearls DO carry meanings to them.

Moods and Colors

A lot of these meanings probably are taken from Actual Moods that Certain Colors Represent.

Like for example: White!

White Pearls are often Worn by Brides because they portray Innocence, Beauty, Purity and New Beginnings.

Millions of Colors

The problems that you run into, when dealing with Pearls and Colors, is that there are millions and millions of Pearl Colors! All different shifts in Hues, Body Tones, and Iridescence. How can they even be put into categories?

  1. What does the color CREAM mean.

    • Hi Lois. Cream is a Combination of Different Colors, and can lean towards the Light Yellow (like Oatmeal, Ivory, Biscuit) side or Light Brown side (like Beige or Tan). But I did find some meaning towards this Hue: Success, Dependable, Calm, Conservative, Chastity, Opulence and Virtue. Hope this Helps! :) -Richard
