Veda pearls were a type of material that could be used in the construction of clothing. Queen Padmé Amidala of the planet Naboo wore a shiraya fan headdress with veda pearl suspensas while visiting the apartment of Senator Sheev Palpatine on the planet Coruscant in 32 BBY. One of Amidala's successors, Queen Apailana, wore veda pearl suspensas that hung from her headdress during the funeral of Amidala in 19 BBY.
