The Pearl Outlet Giveaway: Prom 2010



With it being graduation season I am experiencing what it feels like to be a newly minted grad! If you are looking for a great present to gift that very special grad in your life, you may realize it's hard to get something that can accurately capture the feeling of accomplishment and success. With so many great options out there it is always a safe bet to turn to the classics when trying to impress. What better gift to get the special grad who has worked so hard such as pearls? The pearls from The Pearl Outlet do not only have amazing quality but amazing prices as well.

I believe that every women should have at least one pearl necklace in their jewelry collection in order for it to be complete. Although a pearl necklace may seem old fashioned, there are so many different colours that pearls are actually quite hip. The colours that are available for pearls actually spans the rainbow, pearls can be found in gold, pink, purple and even black pearls! And the great thing is that The Pearl Outlet has amazing jewelry that features pearls of every colour.


The Pearl Outlet
was started in 1998 by the Shepherd family with the vision of creating a warm and inviting, family owned business with a personal touch you won't find with most large corporations, while offering only the finest in pearl jewelry at wholesale prices. And a great thing is that it is still being run by the family today, so you can get a great sense of how well they treat their customers. I also love the fact that they believe so strongly in charity that they give generously of both their time and finances. Some of these charities that they are involved with include:
The Pearl Outlet is such a great company that offers many great perks such as free shipping! And as many of you may know, shipping is pretty expensive! They also have great daily deals on their website, where their already heavily discounted pieces are reduced even further for one day! In fact today's daily deal is a tincup pearl necklace that's original value is $200 but it's now only $35!! That's equal to the price of about a weeks worth of Starbucks! So just imagine if you just give up your Starbucks obsession for one week you can have a bracelet that will last a lifetime!

The Pearl Outlet have a great selection of different types of pearls including: Akoya Pearls, Freshwater Pearls, Tahitian Pearls and South Sea Pearls. The reason why they can offer their pearls at such a discounted rate is because they are essentially selling it to you at wholesale prices as opposed to the heavily marked up prices that you would pay if you had bought them from a retailer. The Pearl Outlet is able to offer you exceptional prices and exceptional quality at amazing prices that is often up to 80% cheaper than retail!! So more money will stay in your wallet while you get an exceptional piece that your loved one will cherish forever.


My Review:


The representative that I communicated with from The Pearl Outlet was so generous in offering me a chance to review an item and it took me such a long time to finally decide upon a product. There were just too many great options and colours and designs, but I finally decided upon reviewing The Complete Black Freshwater Pearl Set.



The items came so quickly and I was also mailed a Certificate of Replacement Value which was great for insurance purposes. Also I was so shocked at the replacement value that was quoted on the certificate because it stated that the value was $1085 but the price that The Pearl Outlet was selling it at was only $145!


The set came in a beautiful box that was lined in silk and the pearls rested on a bed of soft velvet to ensure that the pearls would be protected. The carrying case was very elegant and it made such a great impression when I first opened it.

The Pearl Outlet also offers a great Buyers Guide that is packed with information for the first time pearl buyer that goes through such things as the size of pearls to get, the length of the necklace as well as how to care for them! I didn't realize that you should carefully wipe your pearls after each use with a soft cloth because the oils in your skin can cause the pearls to dull over time, but after reading the Buyers Guide I was well informed about how to best care for them to ensure that they will be beautiful for years to come.

I was very impressed with this complete freshwater set of AA+ quality color treated black pearls which includes a 18" necklace, 7 1/2" bracelet, and stud earrings. The necklace and bracelet are composed of 7.5mm pearls. The clasps and studs are solid 14k gold.



The bracelet was a bit big on me, but all bracelets are so I'm used to it. But I could really feel how weighty the bracelet felt on my hand. Such a difference from the fake pearl bracelet that I would wear.
As you can see I'm wearing the whole set and I'm so in love with it! I gave the pearls a good once over and I didn't see any marks or scratches and the pearls were perfectly round. I can tell that these pearls are of great quality and they have such a deep and shiny luster. They are actually darker than the pictures that are on The Pearl Outlet website, but I can still see hints of blues and purples and greens when the light hits it.

At first I had problems with working the clasp of the necklace but after a while you can get the hang of it. I'd actually want the clasp to be difficult because that means that your necklace will stay in place and not fall off! I have gotten so many great compliments on my set and it works perfectly for dressed up events as well as casually with a t-shirt and jeans!


The Giveaway:


The Pearl Outlet have been so amazing and want to offer my readers the exact same Black Freshwater Pearl Set that I was able to review! This set includes a complete freshwater set of AA+ quality color treated black pearls which includes a 18" necklace, 7 1/2" bracelet, and stud earrings. The necklace and bracelet are composed of 7.5mm pearls. The clasps and studs are solid 14k gold. This is an excellent choice for impressing people at work or to wear to semi-formal or formal occasions.

Sadly this giveaway is only open to US Residents! Sorry International Readers! This pearl set is valued at $1080 but can be yours for only $145!!!!
