How do you get those cute pink pearls? I just love offering pink cultured pearls. They are a gorgeous alternative to traditional white pearls and the pink coloring is surprisingly subtle on all skin tones. Instead of being a shocking pink look they prove to be a natural, soft color when worn against the skin. Truthfully, against the white background of our photos, I believe this pink tone looks more saturated than these pearls appear in person.
So, colorful pearls, where do they come from? Have you ever seen the shockingly wild pearl colors? Sometimes you can find pearls in very unnatural colors including blue, green, chocolate and more. These pearls have been dyed. I believe they are noticeable unnatural looking and usually feature a lower quality pearl.
There was once a trend toward white pearls that had pink tones so pearl suppliers began tinting their white pearls pink. These are different from natural pink pearls since they are essential white pearls but with a pink overtone.
