Tribal Indians, too, believed that pearls were tears of their gods. An Arab legend weaves a tale of dewdrops filled with moonlight that fell into the ocean and were swallowed by oysters, creating the precious pearls. The Gates of Heaven are made of pearl, according to the King James Bible. Pearls were rumored to cure hundreds of ailments. There are many more references to the pearl in works of great literature, and the lustrous jewels are often seen in famous paintings as jewelry, hair decorations and clothing adornments.
Pearls are timeless. They're a simple perfection given by nature and passed on for thousands of years. Most of us remember our Mothers, our grandmothers, our great-grandmother's pearls and one day our children and our grand-children will remember ours. They are never a fashion to fall out of, as a symbol of honesty, purity, wisdom, dignity and faith; they resemble the better angels of ourselves and that is why we desire them.
Pearl Paradise is the largest online pearl company, with pearls at affordable prices for everyday people like myself. It struck me as incredibly fascinating when first receiving the White Freshwater Pearl Earrings from Pearl Paradise. They had come with appraisal papers, estimating their retail value at over $230 and yet to purchase them they would only be between $50 and $66 in their shop. It almost sounds too good to be true, but as my husband is a Pressman for the Wallstreet Journal I trust them and they had given quite an amazing review of Pearl Paradise themselves. In fact, the pearls were so beautiful I refused to touch them for days.
I was impressed by the packaging of the pearls. They came in a beautiful box and they also had a pearl care kit with a cleaning cloth and wipes specific for pearls. It is little details like this that really make a company stand out. I have purchased fine jewelry online before and no one had ever thought to send a personalized stone cleaning kit. I was also incredibly happy that they had as this enabled me to wear them without feeling as though the chemicals in my skin would tarnish them (something I had also learned from the pearl information packet that was included).
Pearl Paradise is filled with information about pearls, education materials on pearl types, grading, history and care to make sure you receive exactly what you want and you understand the quality of your purchase as well as how to take care of it. There are 11 different types of pearls on Pearl Paradise, from Freshwater Pearls to Exotic and all of them utterly beautiful.
You cannot go wrong with a gift of pearls for your girlfriend, wife, daughter, mother, sister or friend. They would make an excellent Valentine's gift, especially if you have a Diva in the family who likes to know little tidbits like how Pearl Paradise was included in the Oscar's swag bags. The prices will amaze you and the quality... astounding; a truly unforgettable shop and a must have if you are in the market for elegant jewelry.
