Giveaway & Review: Pearl Paradise! {CLOSED}

Pearls can mark a special event or reflect a moment in time. I’ve received pearls for gifts for a host of occasions: a necklace and bracelet set for my 18th birthday, a ‘wish’ pearl pendant as a bridesmaid gift, a pearl ring for Christmas... whether real or fake, pearls are a classic jewelry element that never goes out of style! They are also my personal favorite!

I was recently sent a pair of gorgeous Pearl Earrings from PearlParadise.com and I was blown away by the quality and beauty of the pearls. The earrings are simple - yet very classic. I chose white with white gold studs to match my everyday jewelry. The pearls are larger than my typical set (see necklace in picture) and measure between 7 and 8mm. The color is pretty, the pearls look flawless -perfectly round and shiny with a nice iridescence. The earrings came perfectly packaged and ready for gift giving (or receiving!) in a black box (see picture at left) inside a gift box.

I love these earrings because they go with everything. I received them a few weeks and ago and now I wear them to work all the time! I also wore them over the weekend to a barbecue with a sundress, and then to a cocktail party with a little black dress. They are very versatile and work great for night or day! Adding these pretty earrings is an easy way to dress up your look with minimal effort - I love it! You can see me wearing them in the picture below - please ignore the funny smile!

Pearl Paradise has every kind of pearl you can think of! They have everything from your typical rings and necklaces to loose pearls and bridal jewelry sets! And they don't just come in white! You can find freshwater pearls in a variety of pastel colors (pink, peach, lavendar) as well as gold and black!

Pearl Paradise's slogan is "Making the beauty of pearls available and affordable to everyone!" And they definitely win the Frugal & Fabulous seal of approval - Pearl Paradise sells genuine freshwater pearl earrings set in 14 karat gold starting at just $19 a pair - unbelievable! I wish I had known about this site when I was looking for gifts for my bridal party! These earrings retail at $54 but the pearls are valued at $215! The set even came with a certified appraisal!

Verdict: If you're in the market for pearls, or simply looking for a gift - checkout Pearl Paradise for an awesome deal for beautiful, quality pearl jewelry!

Win it! One lucky Frugal & Fabulous reader will win a pair of pearl earrings from PearlParadise.com!

My "favorite" item would probably be the 13.0-14.0 mm AAA White South Sea Pearl Stud earrings, but they are out of my price range. However, I also love many of the less expensive pearl earrings on this site. The pair being given away would thrill me!

I have to say the black oyster pearl/diamond ring is stunning and unique. It combines my two favorite gems in one beautiful ring. I'm going to send the link to my boyfriend..hint..hint...hint! I think it would be a one of a kind engagement ring.
