Pearl Paradise Akoya Pearl Necklace Review And Giveaway

Pearls are classic. Many types of jewelry go in and out of style, but a strand of pearls will always be around. They can be worn for senior pictures and weddings or with jeans. If cared for properly, they can be passed down from generation to generation and become amazing heirlooms.

Photobucket

Pearl Paradise is the world's largest online pearl company selling the finest pearls at 80% off retail. Everyone at Pearl Paradise is required to complete the Gemological Institute of America's pearl diploma program so they can be as helpful as possible to customers. They have been online since 2000 and are committed to providing high quality pearls at a fraction of the cost. With their 90 day money back guarantee, you can buy with peace of mind.

Pearl Paradise sent me this amazing strand of Akoya Pearls.
Photobucket

The strand that they sent me is made of perfectly round, 7.0-7.5 mm, white akoya pearls. They have been knotted between each pearl to ensure that they stay perfect. Being knotted provides me with peace of mind that if something were to happen and the strand broke, my pearls wouldn't scatter all over the floor. It is finished with a 14-Karat, ball shaped clasp in a choice of white or yellow gold. Mine came in white gold. It is available in two grades: AA+ or AAA. I received the AA+ which is very lustrous and virtually blemish free.

Every piece comes showcased in an elegant box so that you can keep it safe. They also come with a pearl care kit and an appraisal. The pearl care kit includes a polishing cloth and care instructions.
Photobucket

I am amazed by the prices at Pearl Paradise. My strand of pearls came with an appraisal valued at $2,400. I chose the 18" strand of 7.0-7.5mm Akoya Pearls that Pearl Paradise sells for only $480. That is a savings of just under $2,000!
Photobucket

In the south, we will wear pearls with anything. I have worn my new pearls several times and I absolutely love them. They lay perfectly and I couldn't ask for anything more. Here is a close up of my pearls on my neck.
Photobucket
