Silver is my favorite South Sea pearl overtone. It's closest to a true white and its cold undertone contrasts with dark hair or skin tone making these pearls optically enlarge to appear bigger, brighter and whiter!
Best suitable for: Darker, Tan or Olive Skin Tone, or Black or Brunette Hair.
Rose is the most traditional white pearl overtone and it's also one of rarest overtone from South Sea White Pearls.
Best suitable for: Fair Skin Tone, or blonde hair and light to medium brunettes.
Cream has a warm overtone that compliments everyone. It's an excellent choice as a gift. It compliments all skin tone and hair color. I consider cream white as a "safe choice".
Best suitable for: Red Hair, Grey or silver hair, Pink Skin Tone.
