Everyone, prepare yourselves emotionally for the overpowering elegance that is... Blue Diamond.
Pearl (or Blue Pearl as she is referred to by the Crewniverse) is a Homeworld Gem that originally belonged to Blue Diamond. She first appeared in a flashback in "The Answer" and made her official debut in "Steven's Dream". Much like that of her friend Yellow Pearl, she resides on Earth, living as a free Gem.

Her height and physical frame are identical to the Crystal Gems' Pearl and Yellow Pearl; she is altogether very lean, with long legs and arms, and has a tall oval-shaped head with a prominent and pointed nose. She has sky blue skin and messy, chin-length periwinkle hair. The upper portion of her face is covered by her bangs, similar to how her owner Blue Diamond covers her face with her hood. Her outfit consists of a periwinkle bodysuit with an open diamond-shaped keyhole neckline (similar to Yellow Pearl's), a sheer, frost-blue, knee-length skirt, and pale blue flats. Her gemstone, a powder-blue cabochon pearl, is located on her chest.
Blue Pearl is a shy and quiet Gem, performing her duties without speaking. Most instances where Blue Pearl speaks is when Blue Diamond talks to her first. Blue Pearl is also seen to be easily frightened, as shown when Greg Universe pops out of the bushes before her; she gasps and has a fearful expression on her face. Like other Homeworld Gems, Blue Pearl is shown to not have a problem carrying out her Diamond's commands. She is also friendly, as she says, "Welcome back," to the Crystal Gems' Pearl in the episode, "Familiar", and she is brave enough to admit her liking to drawing, whereas Yellow Pearl insists that feelings are irrelevant and refuses to say what she likes for fun.
Blue Pearl bows with Blue Diamond at Pink Diamond's Palanquin. She hears Steven and Greg moving in the bushes behind them, so she checks out the area, informing her Diamond that she believes they're not alone. Blue Pearl jumps a little when Greg appears before her suddenly, and she tells her Diamond that she has found a native. After being asked to, Blue Pearl escorts Greg to Blue Diamond. She follows her Diamond onto her ship as they head into space with Greg.
Blue Diamond and Blue Pearl return to Pink Diamond's Zoo where the former continues to mourn for the late Pink Diamond. The two are promptly joined by Yellow Diamond and her Pearl. After failing to persuade Blue Diamond to shatter the remaining Rose Quartz Gems and cease her grieving, Yellow Diamond commands her Pearl to sing for Blue Diamond to comfort her. Yellow and Blue Pearl begin to sing a song in which they act as backing vocalists for Yellow Diamond, who persists in trying to convince her fellow Diamond to move on from their loss.
Blue Pearl acts as the court illustrator at "Rose Quartz's" trial, crafting illustrations of the proceedings and reconstructions of Pink Diamond's shattering as told by Steven. During the proceedings, she is briefly affected by Blue Diamond's pathokinetic wave, and later is shocked by the defending Zircon's allegations, particularly in the question regarding Pink Diamond's Pearl.
In a flashback, Blue Pearl is seen standing next to Pearl as their respective Diamonds discuss Earth.
Blue Pearl escorts Steven and Pearl to Blue Diamond in her Pool Chamber. While Steven going upstairs to see Blue Diamond, Blue Pearl says to Pearl, "Welcome back." She later reminds her Diamond of an upcoming appointment.
Blue and Yellow Pearl help Steven plan his ball. When Steven asks them about things they enjoy doing, Blue Pearl quietly says that she likes to draw. She shows some of her drawings to the Crystal Gems and Yellow Pearl, who asks her to draw her from another angle. They are then interrupted by the arrival of Blue Diamond, who they leave with. At the ball, Blue Pearl announces the arrival of her Diamond.
In a flashback, Blue Diamond mentions that the things Pink Diamond released in the ballroom were chasing the Pearls.
Blue Pearl, along with Yellow and Pink Pearl, helps Steven write the news rules for Era 3. When Yellow Pearl mentions that Pyrope and Demantoid haven't deactivated their Light Prisms, Blue Pearl suggests they send a battalion to take the prisms back.
Blue Pearl only makes a small appearance at the beginning of the film, recording the Diamonds' broadcast to Homeworld with Yellow Pearl. After Steven says he'll return to Earth, White Diamond motions for the Pearls to cut the feed. Yellow Pearl snarks that her time is up anyway and Blue Pearl snickers at the comment and runs to end the broadcast.
Blue Pearl is shown participating in art with Yellow Pearl, Vidalia, and several Uncorrupted Gems.
Blue Pearl is seen at Bismuth's forge watching as Yellow Pearl tries on wedding armor. Steven comes in and Bismuth requests him to detail the armor, resulting in him accidentally breaking the anvil the armor was placed on, with Blue Pearl and the others looking on in shock.
- Hologram Screen Projection: Blue Pearl has the capability of conjuring a blue hologram screen containing her drawings by using her hands.
- Pathokinetic Resistance: Similarly to Lapis Lazuli, Blue Pearl contains a resistance to Blue Diamond's pathokinetic abilities. This was shown in "The Trial" where Yellow Pearl was shown to be heavily affected by Blue Diamond's powers while Blue Pearl only shed a single tear. It is unknown if this ability spawns from great tragedy like Lapis or if she simply built up a resistance due to being around her for so long.
The bulk of their relationship has not been explored, though as the personal Pearls of Yellow and Blue Diamond, they spend a lot of time together. In "That Will Be All", when Yellow Pearl stands next to her, she smirks at Blue Pearl, who grimaced in return. Afterward, when ordered by Yellow Diamond, they sing together but only after Yellow Pearl implores her to join in. In "The Trial", Yellow Pearl gives her a worried look after Zircon mentions Pink Diamond's Pearl. In "Together Alone", Yellow Pearl is stunned when Blue Pearl mentions she likes to draw. After looking through some of her drawings, Yellow Pearl is initially disapproving but brightens when she sees a drawing of herself and asks Blue Pearl to draw her from another angle. In Steven Universe: The Movie, after White Diamond tells Yellow and Blue Pearl to cut the feed of the broadcast that was being filmed, Yellow Pearl makes a snarky comment that her time is up anyway, which caused Blue Pearl to snicker, implying that the two are on better terms than in "That Will Be All".
Yellow Pearl: All rise for the luminous Yellow Diamond!
|—Blue Pearl, "The Trial"|
For millennia, Blue Pearl has been traveling around with Blue Diamond. She respects her Diamond, constantly bowing in her presence and saluting her. Blue Pearl follows every command Blue Diamond gives her (though not as enthusiastically as Yellow Pearl), and doesn't appear to have any issue with that. In "The Trial", she arrived in the tribunal announcing her as "lustrous", serving as a sign of her respect for her Diamond.
In Unleash the Light, it is confirmed that she no longer serves Blue Diamond due to the Gem Empire being dismantled.
|—Blue Pearl, "Familiar"|
They are seen standing together in a flashback in "Now We're Only Falling Apart". Also, in "The Trial", when the defending Zircon mentioned Pearl, both Blue and Yellow Pearl appear shocked. In "Familiar" she is seen standing next to Pearl saying "welcome back," in a show of friendly recognition of her return.
Pink Diamond, my Diamond has requested your presence.
|—Blue Pearl, "Familiar"|
Blue Pearl views Steven as Pink Diamond, and as such treats him as a Diamond. However, Steven later manages to befriend both her and Yellow Pearl and took interest in their hobbies (such as Blue Pearl's drawings). In Unleash the Light, Steven liberates her from Blue Diamond's ownership, and she helps him change Homeworld for the better.
You know, it's when you do something you want to do, just because it feels good.
|—Connie, "Together Alone"|
Connie told Yellow Pearl and Blue Pearl what fun is. This helped inspire Blue Pearl to openly state her love for drawing.

- While not shown in the actual series, Blue Pearl has two eyes.
- At Steven Universe's panel at San Diego Comic-Con 2018, Deedee Magno-Hall stated that Blue Pearl's voice was inspired by actress, model, and singer Marilyn Monroe, as well as the 1930s cartoon character Betty Boop.
