Pearl Paradise Black Pearl Necklace Review & Giveaway

I am a huge fan of Pearl Paradise.  So much so in fact that this is my third time working with them and I can promise you that I will continue to work with them as long as they will have me.  I have in the past reviewed a pearl necklace and pearl bracelet, you can see those reviews at the links I have provided.

This time around I did another pearl necklace but I did it in a 7.5-8.0 mm black freshwater pearl that is so gorgeous I am almost afraid to wear it.  I received it in time to wear it to a wedding last month and I got lots of compliments on how beautiful it was and they wanted to know where I bought it from.  The necklace I chose is available in two different colors, you can get multi-hued or solid dark (both shown below).  Because the top I was wearing is black and white I chose the solid black and it went perfectly with it.

The thing I love most about pearls is that they can be used when your dressing up fancy for a night on the town or a special occasion or they can be worn with blue jeans and a nice top to complete the look without it being too overly dressy.

The Freshwater Pearls that I received from Pearl Paradise are simply stunning.  “This stylish necklace is composed of very near-round (AAA) or near-round (AA+) 7.5-8.0 mm black freshwater pearls. The pearls are perfectly matched, have a smooth surface, and a black-treated body color featured in two different color overtones. Your choice of multi-hued or solid dark.  Each pearl is individually knotted on twin silk and finished with a solid 14-karat gold clasp.”

When you order your necklace you get the choice between a gold or a silver clasp as well as the length and quality of pearls you want to receive.  The lowest price point on this necklace is $122 for a standard 16″ strand of pearls with the highest being $203 if you opt to go with the 18″ AAA quality pearls.  There are a couple other pearl quality choices available but all in all I would say that it is totally worth it for such a beautiful piece of jewelry.

When you order a strand of pearls from Pearl Paradise it comes with an appraisal kit showing you the appraisal on your piece.  As well it comes with a pearl cleaning kit which is instructions on how to properly clean your pearls and a polishing cloth to keep them beautiful for years to come.  They come in a gorgeous gift box that can be used to store your pearls and protect them against wear and tear from being in a regular jewelry box.

Drooling yet?  I know I do every time I look at the site.  If you are looking for that special little girl in your life then I also suggest you check out Pearl Paradise as they have a super adorable kids pearl necklace and bracelet set for $55 that I am hoping to share with you next.  Maddisyn loves to steal my pearls and wear them and it is a never ending battle with her to give them back before she loses them on me.

Pearl Paradise is going to give one of my lucky readers the same beautiful pearl necklace I received.

Tell me where you would wear the pearls if you won.

    I’ve been wanting a nice strand of pearls for so long now that if I won, I’d be so happy to wear them everywhere. Really, can they be worn dressed up or down. It would be my signature necklace of sorts.
    Thanks so much.
