    Are you sure? My daughter's skin is considerably fairer than mine, but she can easily wear my deep golden south sea pearls.

    The natural whites are so stunning to look at, almost ethereal. I loved the way they looked in my hand so much. I had a hard time putting them down!

    I’m going to have to try some different things on. My skin is a very light ivory color with a strong yellow undertone, so I have found some golds to be too overpowering. Although gold is such a complex color, I’m sure the right strand is out there for me!

    Here are my pinked hanadamas which I happen to be wearing today. They do look white on my skin:

    As some may remember, I originally bought a 26" strand of pinked hanadama but found it to be too long for my short frame. So I made it into this trio, instead!

    Great neck Pearl Dreams. I am a blue eyed blonde and like my dark goldens also, although they match my hair...

    She does have a great neck-- but she's only 22! I had a great neck at age 22 also. I was fairer skinned back then, too. At work they used to call me the Ivory Girl.
