  • How would you describe this color?

    The Chinese would call it "fancy color" but I'm not sure that's the best way to describe it. I'm wondering if PG members can help decide on the right label that would make sense for consumers?

    "Metallic fancy multi-hued"?

    I think this is where a picture is worth a thousand words. Just stunning!

      They remind me of magic hour, which is what cinematographers twilight and dawn, the times when the sky exhibits so many hues. So "metal twilight"?

        It's the super-rare red and green combo. It's like the Aurora Borealis in a pearl.

          These look more much more vivid than the gold/copper metallic freshwater drops on sale at PoJ back in February....I can't resist pearls with multiple colors in them. Kevin, you put me in such a pickle :O

            Aurora Borealis is a lovely descriptor! Shimmering colors

              Mardi Gras!

              I don't even drink and yet my first association is the beads people throw. Go figure.

              Either way, they're lovely.

                They are fantastic. I thought I already had a pair of stunning metallic drops from you, Kevin! "Intensely metallic golden copper with green overones"?

                  I called them pink-green-bronze in our 2011 poster presentation on metallic pearls. Jeremy said the Chinese were calling them "strange" color.

                    I would say it looks like rainbow sherbet meets the northern lights only less fattening and organically grown! I love the pearls...can you provide details on what kind they are? They are gorgeous. How about "Aurora" or even "Rory"

                      They remind me of Hisano's special ring, beautiful!

                          Sunset Metallics or the above suggested Aurora Borealis, or shortened to Aurora Metallics? Whatever the name, they are amazingly beautiful, but that doesn't even begin to describe the color in the photograph
