What happened? Where am I?
|—"Change Your Mind"|
Pink Pearl is a Homeworld Gem who was Pink Diamond's original Pearl before being taken from her and placed under the ownership of White Diamond, who used her powers to brainwash Pink Pearl, turning her into White Pearl. She first appeared in "Legs From Here to Homeworld".
Pink Pearl's features are typical for a Pearl, though do bear some notable differences. She has an overall pink color scheme, with white skin, light magenta and hot pink clothes, and lilac hair, which is twisted into two Princess Leia-inspired buns (presumably meant to resemble roses) that are held to the sides of her head.
While under White Diamond's control, she wore a black top that resembles a bralette with gray sleeves that function as gloves, a white tulle skirt that leaves the front of her legs exposed, and a pair of black shorts paired with gray stockings and light gray flats.
Her most prominent feature is the atypical scarring over her left eye, which is lined with cracks that extend to the chin, hairline, and hair bun of her physical form, completely covering the (presumably missing) eye. As her gem appears undamaged, the source of the scarring is currently unknown. Her gemstone is located on the upper part of her navel and is an oval-shaped cabochon, bearing similarities to that of the Crystal Gems' Pearl.
When she appears to be serving Pink Diamond, she did not have her scarring. Her outfit and hair were also in shades of pink, and her outfit matches some of the hues of Pink Diamond's outfit. However, even when she was released from White Diamond's control, she kept the scarring over her left eye.
Much of Pink Pearl's personality is currently unknown. A dream that Steven has in "Together Alone" depicts her as having a playful and happy personality, playing with Pink Diamond and keeping their friendship a secret from the other Diamonds.
While under White Diamond's control, Pink Pearl was shown to express rather unsettling, robotic behavior. She absently gazed into the distance when speaking, bears a constant smile, remains poised en pointe with her arms held upward in a graceful position, and moved without physically making an effort, as though she is simply floating along on her toes. This altogether gave the impression of a vacant mind, making her appear as though she is a robot. Her voice was different from the other Pearls, having White Diamond's voice.
According to Steven's dream in "Together Alone", Pink Pearl served Pink Diamond thousands of years prior to Pink Diamond's colonization of the Earth. As foreshadowed in "Change Your Mind", she was later taken away from Pink Diamond by White Diamond, in response to Pink's behavior. White Diamond presumably gave Pink Pearl the scar over her eye through unknown means.
White Pearl approaches the Crystal Gems and the Diamonds when they arrive on Homeworld. She emphasizes the fact that Pink Diamond, and only she, is wished to be seen by White Diamond. White Pearl suddenly encloses herself and Steven inside her shell and transports him to White. Once she has done so, White Pearl phases through a wall, disappearing.
She appears in White Diamond's place at Steven's "Era 3 ball" as the former had opted not to come. She stands on White Diamond's throne as the evening goes on. While smiling blankly for most of the event, she suddenly looks displeased when Connie and Steven fuse in front of the assembled Gems.
White Pearl appears as Steven and Connie are attempting to escape Homeworld with Pink's ship, telling them they aren’t going anywhere. She then teleports into White's ship and later appears when Steven and the Gems confront White. She also helps attack the pink hologram Steven along with the rest of White’s mind controlled slaves, but this fails and she reverts back to her normal pink form when White loses control. She asks what happened and where she is, and Steven welcomes her back.
She'll return in Steven Universe Future.
Pink Pearl is assumed to possess standard Gem abilities.
- White Capsule Generation: While controlled by White Diamond, Pink Pearl can create a kind of white capsule around herself or other Gems, with several utilities.
- Intangibility: While controlled by White Diamond, Pink Pearl has the ability to traverse solid materials such as the structure of the White Diamond ship. However, it is not yet known if this is, in fact, a skill or just the technology of the ship.
- Levitation: While controlled by White Diamond, Pink Pearl has the ability to, indirectly, suspend her body.
- White Burst: While under White Diamond's control, Pink Pearl was capable of shooting a white energy beam equivalent to White Diamond's aura through her eye. This energy beam can take over the affected Gems' mind.
RelationshipsTogether Alone", White Pearl (then Pink Pearl) is shown interacting with Steven dressed as Pink Diamond, suggesting White Pearl belonged to Pink Diamond. The two appear to have had a close relationship, having fun together and keeping their friendship a secret from the other Diamonds. Pink Pearl was then given to White Diamond, although it is uncertain when and why. It is possible that she was taken away by White Diamond as punishment to Pink Diamond as was threatened by Blue.
To those in attendance of the Era 3 ball, White Diamond... has more important things to attend to.

- Since Pink Pearl (as White Pearl) was also voiced by White Diamond's voice actress, Christine Ebersole, she was the only Pearl seen so far not to be voiced by Deedee Magno-Hall.
- That is, until "Change Your Mind", where Pink Pearl is freed from White Diamond's control and regains her original voice, having Deedee Magno-Hall as her voice actress like all other Pearls seen thus far.
- Pink Pearl is the first Gem encountered thus far to possess physical damage to her form despite not being corrupted or cracked.
- Pink Pearl (as White Pearl) is currently the only subordinate of White Diamond to be named or shown.
- In Steven's dream in "Together Alone", however, Pink Pearl is shown having formerly been a subordinate of Pink Diamond.
- Pink Pearl's hairstyle is similar to that of Princess Leia from the Star Wars franchise.
- She is the only Pearl known to have switched ownership, as she switched from being owned by Pink Diamond to being owned by White Diamond.
