Where Hester must hide because of her sin, Pearl must be celebrated for the purity of love. Hester is not shy about displaying this. Hester dresses Pearl in outfits of gold or red or both with , “a crimson velvet tunic of a peculiar cut, abundantly embroidered with fantasies and flourishes of gold thread.”
