PearlParadise.com {Giveaway}


THIS GIVEAWAY IS NOW CLOSED
THANK YOU TO ALL WHO PARTICIPATED
A WINNER WILL BE ANNOUNCED SHORTLY


PEARLS ~
No other gem has captivated our fascination and admiration like the pearl.

Pearls have been recognized as prized jewels for centuries longer than any cut stone.

Almost all other gemstones are formed by mineral deposits that must be mined, cut and polished to reveal their sparkling beauty. Pearls, on the other hand, are beautiful as they are straight out of the mollusk. High quality pearls have an intense, brilliant luster and shiny iridescence that emanates from within the gem.

It is for this reason that pearls have become the symbol of purity and natural beauty.



My Review
Thank you to PearlParadise.Com for supplying me with a lavender pearl necklace for my review.

I like white pearls, but I LOVE coloured pearls, especially lavender. Did you know that the lavender colour is natural and only occurs in freshwater pearls?

When my package arrived I tore into it, (imagine a child on Christmas morning.) I was absolutely blown away by their stunning beauty and elegance. Your purchase from PearlParadise.com arrives professionally packaged in a beautiful black case. Included is an appraisal sheet. My strand of pearls is appraised at $580.00!

Take a look at my gorgeous necklace...it is 18 inches long. It consists of 6.0-7.0mm AAA Freshwater pearls. The clasp is 14kt gold.


When I put my freshwater pearls around my neck, I immediately noticed the the smooth luster and the cool feel of the pearls themselves. I have never owned a pearl necklace before and I had no idea that pearls were as heavy as they are. (not that I am saying the necklace was weighing on my neck.)

Wearing a strand of pearls gives you the feel of elegance and class that other jewelry just doesn't give. Pearls are a classic that never goes out of style. I remember my grandmother had a pearl necklace and bracelet which I admired as a young child. I plan to make my strand of pearls a heirloom and with any luck I hope to one day pass these along to a grandchild.

PearlParadise.com does not disappoint...their quality is excellent, and their customer service is outstanding. Shop smart and get the jewels you are looking for and deserve, but don't pay the high retail prices. PearlParadise.com gives you choice in how you are able to purchase the best jewelry at the best prices!

PearlParadise.com is the world's largest online pearl company. They specialize in providing affordable, high-quality, pearl jewelry designs at up to eighty percent below retail prices. Their selection includes necklaces, bracelets, pendants, earrings, rings and jewelry sets.

Thank you to PearlParadise.com for offering a giveaway to Country Mouse, City Mouse readers. One lucky reader is going to win a lavender pearl necklace...just like the one I reviewed!! My necklace retails for $114.00 at PearlParadise.com...don't forget this giveaway prize is appraised at $580.00!!
