Red Pearl is tall with a thin build and pale red skin. She has cherry red pupils, a pointed nose, thin lips, and beige red hair. Her gemstone is embedded in her navel.
In her debut regeneration, her outfit consists of a cherry red colored bodysuit, a semi-translucent red cape, and goldenrod ballet slippers. Her hair is styled in a bob shape.
In her current regeneration, her skin is slightly darker than before. She wears a red and hot pink bodysuit with light pink straps, a semi-translucent pink cape, and hot pink ankle boots. She has wavy, darker, hair that goes down to her neck.
Red Pearl was created as a personal servant for Red Diamond after the latter's creation, which took place after the 300 years following the supposed demise of Pink Diamond. It is therefore assumed that Pearl emerged amid the same period.
4,000 Years Ago - Present Day
While Red Diamond grew as a Diamond, conquering colonies and building a court — her branch, as GemCrust has referred to it —, Red Pearl followed her behind, taking matters such as opening doors, scheduling events, recording affairs, and overall Pearl duty to her hands. In the meanwhile, she came to know Red Diamond's "hidden nature", her nurturing side, as well as her caring personality. This led, at some point, to their fusion.
Red Pearl attended "Pink Diamond's" trial, alongside her Diamond, and is said to have recorded it. As she entered the room, she referred to Red Diamond as "radiant."
As per usual, Pearl helped oversee the colonization under one of Red Diamond's colonies. This planet was not but Ni'vallah, a world of "odd, small blue creatures," which was set to grow many "wonderful" Gems, was it not for the cancelation of the fixating process led by Red Diamond herself.
Red Pearl followed her Diamond when the latter discovered some Gems to have been left stranded in Ni'vallah during the evacuation. Despite the attempt of the left behind to reach out using communicating devices, Ni'vallians had destroyed most Gem structures, leaving them with no further options. Nevertheless, they managed to send out a distress signal, and thus Red Diamond and Pearl got on their track.
Upon the arrival, however, the natives thought her Diamond had returned to finish what she started, therefore they attacked under the cover of nightfall. In the confusion, Pearl was poofed by a Ni’vallian warrior who knows the Gems weak points and how to destroy them. She was left placed on a neckless worn by an elder and believed to be shattered.
Sometime thereon, she was replaced by a new Pearl made by Yellow and Blue Diamonds, whom Red Diamond came to despise.
Red Pearl was later rescued by Red, who managed to recover her. Now, her Diamond keeps both of her Pearls, this one accompanying her around and the one her fellow Diamonds gifted her staying on her palace. While Red Diamond sometimes switches them up, it is said she enjoys having the both of them.
As Red Diamond attended "Pink Diamond's" Era-3 ball, it is safe to assume that Red Pearl did too.
Red Pearl possesses standard Gem abilities, bubbling, shapeshifting, fusion, regeneration, agelessness, and superhuman strength/durability.
Shield Proficiency: GemCrust has stated that, if Red Pearl had a weapon, it would be a shield. It is assumed that she would be skilled while wielding it.
Red Diamond and Red Pearl care very deeply for each other, given the former's damaged state after losing the latter and how they have fused in the past. In spite of this, they follow proper etiquette, such as Pearl walking behind her Diamond.
A pearl is a hard object produced within the soft tissue (specifically the mantle) of a living shelled mollusk. Just like the shell of a clam, a pearl is composed of calcium carbonate in minute crystalline form, which has been deposited in concentric layers.
Pearls being considered lesser Gems could be based on the fact that pearls are not "real" gemstones, but are instead organic, being formed by mollusks. As organic gemstones, pearls belong to the same group as ammolite, coral, ivory, jet, and amber. These are all formed as a result of biological processes.
Pearl is the official birthstone for the month of June as adopted by the American National Association of Jewelers in 1912. It is also the birthstone for the Sun Signs of Gemini and Cancer.
Pearls are also given on the third and thirteenth anniversaries.
Pearl is the national gemstone of the Philippines.
The name "pearl" is said to have originated from the Middle English word "perle", which in turn came from the Latin word "perna", meaning "leg", thought to be due to the ham-leg shape of the bivalve mollusk.
Pearls vary in color from white to those with a hint of color, often pink, to brown or black. Each coloration will depend on the type of mollusk and the water where the mollusk lived.
Pearls come in white, off-white, cream, golden, peach, pink, black, silver, lavender, and blue.
Some pearls exhibit iridescence, which is known as orient. Orient can be predominantly one color such as green or pink, or consist of a rainbow of colors in weak, moderate, or strong appearances. The colors of pearls also have sometimes been associated with certain qualities: black or gold with wealth, blue with love, pink with success.
Pearls have been harvested and cultivated primarily for use in jewelry, but in the past were also used to adorn clothing.
They have also been crushed and used in cosmetics, medicines and paint formulations.
Pearls are thought to give wisdom through experience, to quicken the laws of karma and to cement engagements and love relationships. They are thought to keep children safe.
Pearls are quite "soft" and range between 2.5 and 4.5 on the Mohs scale of hardness.
Because the nacre is organic, pearls are very sensitive to extreme heat, acids, dryness, and humidity.
Although pearls are relatively soft, they are extremely compact, which makes them durable and resistant to being crushed.
