"Obedient to he captain's will, the Black Pearl followed her dark angel over the azure water; as fast as the wind, as free as the men who sailed her. It was almost as though she knew she was a legend in the making, destined for adventures both great and terrible...

My pearl bracelet that my husband gave me when we got married. ❤️️❤️️❤️️

A few are close to black! And they came from exotic waters like where the #blackpearl sailed.

Dark Moon | David Gemmell

The origi al tutle is Dark Moon, but in ltalian has been translated into La Perla Nera. So, there you have it your #BlackPearl

I've read it a long time ago, but l remember loving it. I particularly liked the possessed character, with his two personalities

CrowCAH Sounds interesting and definitely has a dark Black Pearl feel about it! 5y
JazzFeathers @CrowCAH lt's indeed quite unusual, in my opinion 5y

The #BlackPearl was raised from the depths, by Davy Jones, for Jack to captain her for 13 years, but Barbossa mutinied after two years and Cpt Jack Sparrow lost her, only to go down with his ship, in Dead Man's Chest, to live out his days in Davy Jones's Locker.

Girl with a Pearl Earring | Tracy Chevalier

#whatawaytolive #blackpearl

This book leapt to mind for this prompt! I loved it and heartily recommend this and the movie too. It's fictional, inspired by the Vermeer painting, telling a story of a servant girl who becomes Vermeer's model for this portrait. The girls background and her life as a servant is beautifully told; you really feel you're in 17th century Holland and in the shoes of this pretty, vulnerable girl.

JulieAnn This was such a beautiful book. I love her books. This one, The Lady and the Unicorn, and The Virgin Blue are my favorites. She is amazing in her historical detail. 5y
CrowCAH The "light side" of the Black Pearl is the Pearl aspect. Cpt Jack refers to his ship as the Pearl, he's on the good side! ? 5y
Centique @julieann I "think" I've read Virgin Blue. May have to get it out and reread to be sure. I definitely need to read more Tracy Chevalier though! Thanks for the reccs ? 5y

Centique @CrowCAH you are always so knowledgeable! I'm glad Capt Jack had his heart set on the light side 👼☠️ 5y
Elisa I agree, this was a good book. 👍🏼 How incredible, creating a whole story around a character in a painting! Just remarkable. 5y
Centique @Elisa I agree! She's a talented author. The movie is good too - the cinematography is beautiful; somehow the light and colours are like Vermeer's paintings IMO. 5y
