With more than 100,000 satisfied customers to date, we have benefited greatly by word-of-mouth advertising. Our commitment to quality, customer service, and unbeatable pricing and selection has helped us become the Internet’s premier source of pearl jewelry.
The reputation we have built based on the quality of our merchandise has attracted the attention of journalists around the world. We have been blessed with glowing articles in The Wall Street Journal, Entrepreneur Magazine, Investor’s Business Daily, and Inc. Magazine, to name just a few.
The pearl and jewelry industry has followed our growth and featured us in respected industry publications like Modern Jeweler, Jewellery News Asia, and JCK.
While more than 99 percent of our business is conducted online, we offer appointments for our local clientele in our luxurious Los Angeles showroom. We offer only one appointment per day, and these are often booked weeks in advance. However, no appointments are available mid-November through early January. With thousands of pearl strands for clients to see, we insist on giving our undivided attention. This unique experience has created a following of celebrities and pearl connoisseurs who are regulars in our showroom.
At Pearl Paradise, every associate is a world-class pearl expert. Every team member is required to complete the Gemological Institute of America’s pearl diploma program. Then we train our team in pearl grading, selection, matching, and drilling.
Through the Mom Trials:
Nothing speaks more for class and elegance than pearl jewelry! Through time, they’ve continued to be highly sought after and treasured gems that makes for heirloom quality jewelry. Although the most popular pearls today remain the traditional string of white pearls, you can find pearls of all colors that are just as lovely such as black, lavender, metallic, golden, multicolor, pink, and more! With Valentine’s Day coming soon, I’m sure you know a special lady who would love to add to or start their collection of pearl jewelry and Pearl Paradise is just the place to purchase them! They have so many gorgeous pearl jewelry pieces to choose from and I can’t hardly believe that they can offer these high quality, freshwater pearls at such reasonably low prices- at 80% below retail prices!
I already owned a pair of white pearl earrings so it was natural for me to choose a matching pearl necklace to go with them. I received a stunningly beautiful 7.0-8.0 mm White Freshwater Pearl Necklace and I couldn’t be more happy to wear my newly acquired necklace. Whether I’m dressed to the nines for a special occasion or wearing a casual outfit, this necklace is a fantastic way to top it off and add a bit of sophistication too! At 18 inches long, it hangs beautifully around my neck and I love the smooth, cool feeling of the stranded pearls and the brilliant luster that radiates from the necklace. It is my most favorite piece of jewelry to date!
The pearl necklace came in a pretty black gift box along with a postcard on how to care for your pearls, a pearl care kit to help keep your pearls keep clean and looking their best, and a certificate of appraisal for my pearl necklace! This is not a necklace I could have ever afforded on my own if I had to purchase it for the full retail price at a regular jewelry store. With an quality overall quality of AAA, 7.0-8.0 mm size white pearls with near round, highest luster, and 95% blemish free attributes, this necklace has a certified appraisal for $945 and sells on the Pearl Paradise website for only $189!!! What an amazingly affordable price for this exquisite freshwater pearl necklace!
