Does anything scream class quite like a warm cream color? Coconut Milk is, honestly, going to pair with just about anything. When you add stone to the equation, you also get to see the opacity of White African Opal against the chatoyancy of Peach Moonstone and the effect is perfection.

Peach Moonstone

Coconut Milk:
White African Opal
