The beautiful opalescent appearance of a pearl is hard to pin down as one colour, but the name was used to describe white pigmented with Prussian blue, black, ochre and even Indian red (madder) in the C19th. Our colour takes a hint from all these pigments but uses them very sparingly to create the pale radiance of the best jewellery pearl.
