Holiday Gift Guide: Pearl Paradise (review/giveaway)


I know as a woman, we can sometimes be the hardest to buy for. Or at least finding a reasonably priced gift for women can be hard. So this holiday season, if you are a woman, ask for pearls! No, they aren't all horribly expensive! If you are a man, give her pearls! You can look like you spent a ton, when really you only spent a reasonable amount! Where you may ask...Pearl Paradise.


I was sent a 7.0-8.0 mm Lavender Freshwater Pearl Necklace from Pearl Paradise, and it's beautiful! I never wear a lot of jewelry, especially necklaces because I'm always afraid one of the kids would pull it and tear it off. When it arrived I was so awe struck by the beautiful box it was in, it took me awhile to actually open it. It is a nice black gift box, inside a nice white box, just slap a bow on it and you can give it as a gift as is, no need to wrap either! I got the 18" strand, and gold clasp. To be honest, I have NEVER seen a clasp like this one...it took me 20 minutes of fiddling around with it, then when I showed someone my necklace I had to ask if they knew how to open it...it's a squeeze clasp...I have never used one, but now that I know how, it's easy. I can't wait until Jeff and I have a nice date night, and I can dress up and wear this beautiful necklace.


Not only do you get a necklace in a beautiful box, it comes with a pearl care kit and an appraisal.  The pearl care kit comes with instructions and a cleaning cloth. The appraisal is a certified appraisal by a GIA graduate.



Best of all, for all that you get with a necklace like mine, it's only $120!


Pearl Paradise has other types of pearl jewelry, such as bracelets, earrings, rings and pendants. In all different colors such as white, pink, lavender (I got, and it's beautiful!), black and gold. I didn't realize there were different types of pearls, I got the freshwater pearls, but there is also akoya, tahitian and south sea (to name a few), of course the different types have different prices.


**Giveaway Has Ended...Winner Announced**

Timbo said...

Call me old fashioned, but there is such a simple elegance in the classic fashions. My girl agrees with me and she tends to make herself beautiful accordingly.

All that being said, she and I were drawn especially to what they're calling the Classic Collection White South Sea Pearl Ring, located here:

http://www.pearlparadise.com/Classic-Collection-White-South-Sea-Pearl-Ring1041.aspx

Simple and beautiful, just the way we like it :)
