I'd look at using a light tent or something similar to help control the
lighting.  You're not really photographing the pearls as much as you are
photographing what they reflect.  A tent might help control some of the
specular highlights.  And make them more neutral, too.

Something to play with would be to add some kind of object that would show
up in the reflections.  That can be fun, too.
