Yellow Diamond's Pearl (affectionately dubbed Yellow Pearl in the credits) is the personal servant of Yellow Diamond and a minor antagonist on Cartoon Network series Steven Universe.
She is voiced by Deedee Magno-Hall, who also voices the Crystal Gems' Pearl and Blue Diamond's Pearl.
Her build and facial features are similar to that of Pearl of the Crystal Gems and Blue Diamond's Pearl.
She sports a beige or pale peach maillot with a similar bustline to Blue Diamond's Pearl. She also wears a puffy canary yellow sheer silk shoulder sleeves and no skirt, as well as pale yellow long stockings and bright yellow flats. In the fashion of her owner, she has a puffy yellow pixie haircut that is pointy and in a similar bob design and pale yellow skin. Her Gem, a yellow pearl, is on her chest, a round polished cabochon, similar to Blue Diamond's Pearl.
Yellow Pearl adheres to the rules of Gem society, and when someone breaks a rule, she is shown to have a no-nonsense personality and a bit of a temper, as seen when Peridot uses the Diamond Communicator, whom Yellow Pearl argues "has no excuse to use the Direct Diamond Communication Channel". Another example of this is when Peridot talks back to Yellow Diamond, causing her to remark in shock and disgust. In "The Trial", when Blue Zircon was discussing the events of Pink Diamond's shattering, she appeared offended by some of Zircon's statements.
Yellow Pearl is shown to be somewhat fearful of Yellow Diamond. When Yellow Diamond calls her name, she appears to be startled and nervously talks to her. However, while Yellow Diamond is yelling at Peridot, Yellow Pearl seems to be proud of her leader, and, like most Pearls on Homeworld, obeys her Diamond's orders without hesitation.
In Message Received, Yellow Pearl makes her debut. She answers Peridot's call, and attempts to reprimand her since she did not receive authorization from anyone to use the Diamond Communicator. Once Yellow Diamond takes over the call, Yellow Pearl listens in and expresses different reactions throughout the conversation.
"That Will Be All"
Yellow Pearl travels along with Yellow Diamond to Pink Diamond's Zoo. She sings background vocals with Blue Pearl in a song sung by Yellow Diamond when trying to make Blue Diamond move on from the death of Pink Diamond.
Yellow Pearl acts as the stenographer at "Rose Quartz's" trial. During the proceedings, she is briefly affected by Blue Diamond's pathokinesis wave, and later is shocked by Blue Zircon's allegations.
- Given the resemblance Yellow Pearl has to Yellow Diamond, it is implied that Pearls are custom made to resemble their owners.
- Peridot says that Pearls are meant for "standing around" and "holding [their] stuff for [them]." Here however it is shown that Pearl can be used for other such tasks. In this case, Yellow Pearl is used as a personal secretary for communications meant for Yellow Diamond.
- Yellow Pearl is the third Pearl ever shown in the series after the Crystal Gems' Pearl and Blue Diamond's Pearl.
- In "Message Received", Yellow Pearl has a grin on her face when Yellow Diamond is talking to Peridot, indicating that she is proud of serving her.
- This grin also somewhat resembles that of the Grinch's.
