• If a bride or bridesmaid is wearing a necklace, it should be at least one inch above the neckline so it will not look as if it is going to fall into the dress. If the necklace is longer, it should be at least two inches below the
neckline so that it will show and the necklace cannot fall into the dress.

• Despite the above tips, the bride should remember that this is her day and she has a right to wear whatever she wishes. tissue inserted in Akoya oysters is yellow, cream-colored pearls tend to form. If white, white pearls result.

What Color is the Best For You

Most pearl experts agree that a buyer's color choice should be primarily based on what will look good on the person who will wear the pearls. Some salespeople, though, give color advice by suggesting what's popular in specific geographic areas. One fairly consistent statement, for example, is that South Americans prefer cream- or golden-colored pearls.

When shopping in the United States, the color listed as the number one choice may vary from one salesperson to another. Perhaps it's a matter of what the store has in stock. It's sometimes claimed that the most popular pearl color in America is pink. The U.S., however, is a diverse nation. Consequently, pink is not the color that looks best on all Americans. Picking a color on the basis of its popularity might lead to a poor choice.

Determining the colors that flatter you most is not always easy. Carole Jackson, in her book, Color Me Beautiful, provides some guidelines with color illustrations. She points out on page 28, for example, that olive-skinned people and most blacks and Orientals look radiant in clear, vivid, cool colors (pink, white, blue, red) but sallow in warm colors (cream, orange, beige, mustard). Warm colors, however, are very flattering to people with peach or golden complexions (Redheads and blondes often have this skin coloring).

Some people in the trade recommend white and pink pearls to Asians and Anglos and cream or golden pearls to blacks and olive-skinned customers. This is because cream colors look whiter on a dark-skinned person than on someone with lighter skin.

One easy way to determine which pearl colors will compliment you is to put on white, light pink, and cream-colored clothing and see what looks best next to your face. It's helpful to get the opinion of family and friends. Often, two of the colors look equally attractive, but it's rare that all three will. The final test will be to put the pearls on your hand or around your neck and see how they look. Consider, too, if you want people to notice the pearls when you wear them. If you do, then choose a color that contrasts with your skin tone. Pearls that blend in too closely won't be very striking. When you're buying for others, they probably won't be able to try on the pearls. So beforehand, observe what color clothes they like to wear and look good in. If they don't like beige or cream¬colored clothes and these colors don't flatter them, you' be better off avoiding cream-colored pearls.

Two other considerations when choosing pearl color are versatility and price. If you would like to wear the pearls as often as possible, then select colors that will go well with most of your wardrobe. If your budget is limited and you are trying to choose between light or dark cream pearls, the dark cream pearls could be the ideal choice. Don't buy them, though, if cream colors make you look washed out. The purpose of jewelry is to enhance your appearance, not detract from it. So put some thought into your color choices. It will pay off in the end.
