Pearl Paradise Review & Giveaway


Are pearls a girls best friend?
Next to a piece of diamond jewelry, every woman needs a pearl necklace! Nothing is more simple, elegant and classy than a pearl necklace. I knew freshwater pearls were expensive, but I didn't know they have a substantial markup when purchased from a retailer.  I was surprised that you can purchase freshwater pearls up to 80% below retail prices through Pearl Paradise. Since freshwater pearls are more affordable than diamonds, maybe we should be saying pearls are a girls best friend now!

My Pearl Paradise Experience!

I have one strand of white pearls I inherited from my grandmother when she  passed away and I absolutely love them. We attend business meeting often and pearls always look great with business attire. I was ecstatic when Pearl Paradise contacted me about reviewing one of their freshwater pearl products. Since pink is my favorite color I chose the 16 inch strand of 6.0-7.0 mm Pink to Peach Freshwater Pearl Necklace. The freshwater pearls came packaged in a beautiful black box and also included was a documentary DVD, a cleaning cloth and a certified appraisal in my package. I think having a certified appraisal with each Pearl Paradise item is such a great asset and value. My pearl necklace was appraised at $525 and can be purchased for $105 at Pearl Paradise. What an amazing discount!

When I received my pearls, I couldn't wait to try out my new pearl necklace. The freshwater pearls are much larger and heavier than my white strand. They are such a beautiful shade of pink and so shiny smooth. The clasp was easy to do myself and the 16 inch was the perfect length. I will be wearing my new pearl necklace often and when I'm ready to add to my collection I will want them to come from Pearl Paradise!
