Pearl Paradise Earrings Giveaway Ends 12/20/10 + Exclusive Discount!

Pearl Confession

Pearls to me, just scream elegant. Even as a little girl I was fond of pearls. I would get my Mom’s pearls out and play with them, even in the bath tub. Unfortunately that didn’t end well. One day the drain come out of the tub and … you guessed it … bye-bye strand of pearls. I never did ask Mom if they were real or costume pearls. I was scared to death.

Frankly, I think I still am. I’ll never forget the horror when those pearls slid down the drain, my hands aimlessly and hopelessly grabbing empty water. My first thought as a child was to grab the toilet plunger. Who the heck knew that the plunger pushed stuff down and away rather than sucking it back up?! {ouch}

I have been teetering on telling my now 69 year old Mom what happened, and braving the question of whether or not the necklace that went down the tub drain was real or not. When I do so, I’m considering presenting her with a pair of pearl earrings from Pearl Paradise to soften the blow. There have been a few years pass since the incidence, and for all I know she may already know what happened. 

I absolutely love the Pearl Paradise website and products. It’s laid out easily to browse and navigate by style of jewelry, pearl type, pearl color, price and even collections. One area I have spent some time on is the education tab. I did not know until first working with Pearl Paradise that personal care products can damage your pearls. I didn’t know that pearls are considered one of the most misunderstood gemstones on the market today. Check out the education area of the site to learn more about types of pearls, pearl grading, pearl history and my personal favorite – pearl care.

Every purchase from Pearl Paradise comes complete with an appraisal certificate that is prepared by a GIA graduate, showcased in elegant presentation boxes ready for gift giving, instructions on how to care for your new pearls and a polishing cloth to keep your pearls in excellent condition.

When making a choice from Pearl Paradise make it a choice that you can pass along from generation to generation. A keepsake that everyone will remember, and hopefully will not play with in the bathtub – ever.

A quick pearl comparison:

Freshwater pearls are grown primarily in man-made lakes and reservoirs in China. Saltwater pearls, which include akoya, Tahitian and South Sea, are grown in bays, inlets and atolls in many places around the world. Saltwater pearls are considered more valuable than freshwater pearls, although rare and very high-quality freshwater pearls can be exceedingly valuable.

Give someone you love a gift from Pearl Paradise in their stocking, small but packs a punch. Give them a gift that will last a lifetime and beyond. Gifts that won’t be soon forgotten, but adored and treasured for years to come.
