"Brilliant white" in a keycap context is Unicomp's term for a chromatically-cool white colour. Brilliant white keycaps are a modern equivalent to pearl keycaps, which by comparison were a warmer colour and look slightly yellowed side-by-side with brilliant white keycaps. They are similarly usually paired with grey-coloured (that is also chromatically cooler than its older pebble counterpart) keycaps as part of a two-tone set, with brilliant white keys usually being alphanumeric and the spacebar and grey keys usually being arrows, enters, modifiers and operators. They are typically available as an option for Unicomp raven black keyboards.
