Lovely and round,
I shine with pale light,
Grown in the darkness,
A lady's delight.



Answer

A pearl.

It is pretty and near spherical,
Usually white,
Grows in an oyster,
And worn by ladies as jewelry.

The answer could just as well have been an opal, don't you think? Opals are formed in darkness inside rock, and they sparkle and glow and are valued as jewels. But I guessed a pearl was meant.

salem33466Aus*
Feb 17, 2008

i thought it was some kind of a jewel and then i read the hint and guessed pearl...i was thinking a jewel since most jewels are formed underground in the dark

good teaser!

I thought it was hard. Interesting, but hard. I must be tired...

Feb 17, 2008

I didn't check the hint because I was sure it was a diamond Still think it could go either way

Feb 17, 2008

It was easy. I thought diamond first because of ladies delight. But diamonds are not round unless they are cut round and they shine with brilliant, not pale, light, so I went with pearl. Good teaser. Thanks

I guessed moon, but then I saw the hint and changed my mind. To another wrong answer. Oh, well. Can't win them all.

I guessed moon too, but then the moon can be seen even at day in the afternoon, where i live at least.

well written... i thought moon also til i viewed the hint... then it came REAL easy, considering my wife is obsessed with white gold and pearls

WOOHOO!! I acually got it on the first try without the hint. I can't belive that I did that, because I can never never ever get any of the riddles right. But, of course, this one was easy, so I shouldn't be too proud of myself.

I too thought diamonds at first but as mentioned they are no normally round. I got it easily after reading the hint.
As a side not - Pearl was my grandmother's name and is my middle name
