The design is made up of vertical undulating garlands of small pearls with alternating larger pearls separated by vertical undulating garlands of dots of light tan color with offsetting stylized palm leaves of dark reddish-brown color over a light tan background with stipples of dark reddish-brown color. The small pearls are colored with white; the larger pearls are colored alternatingly with pink, orange, purple and geen, and have red outlines.
