Pearls Can Be A Bloggers Best Friend; The Pearl Outlet's Amazing Lavender Pearl Bracelet Review And Giveaway!
Did someone say jewelry? Did someone say Pearl jewelry? Did someone say PURPLE pearl jewelry?
Oh yeah...they did!
I recently had the opportunity to review a product from ThePearlOutlet.com. Amongst all the beautiful pieces of jewelry offered, I absolutely fell for this one:
These lustrous, natural lavender color, pearl bracelets are incredible. The double row of pearls are strung on twin silk thread which is hand knotted between each pearl for beauty and durability. Each strand is finished with a solid 14k white gold clasp.
Isn't this a beautiful bracelet? From the luster of the pearls to the strength of the clasp it not only feels gorgeous it looks equally as gorgeous on my wrist! And it is really very versatile. I can pair it with a simple black dress or with a sweater and jeans...it can take me from the office to dinner and everywhere in between.
The Pearl Outlet has tons of other items you will fall in love with as well! From Black Pearls to Chocolate Pearls to Akoya Pearls - if it is made of pearls, chances are you will not only find them at The Pearl Outlet, you will find them at an amazing price!
Did you know that there are nine different types of pearls? I didn't. Or that there are different sizes of pearls? I didn't know that either. The Pearl Outlet has this great page where they tell you all the things you need to know before buying pearl jewelry. I found it to be very useful and highly informative and so will you!
The Pearl Outlet also has a great guarantee and refund policy:

Our company strives to find the finest quality pearls, always selling them to you for the lowest possible price; often up to 80% off of retail.

Take a moment to read a little bit of background on this company. I love that they are involved directly in a number of charitable organization.
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. Terry Shepherd, with his extensive knowledge and background in pearls, travels to many out-of-the-way places to purchase pearls directly from the farms where they are produced. This bypasses any middlemen, bringing our customers the ultimate in quality and pricing. Crystal Shepherd manages many of the day-to-day operations of the office, often devoting her time to personally address customer requests and needs.
The Shepherds also have an acute interest in improving their community and the world around them. They actively participate in many charities, giving generously of both their time and finances. Some of these charities include:
IAM Children's Orphanage: Helping AIDS victims in Uganda, Africa
SMART: Transforming our children's future through reading.
Compassion International: Releasing children from their poverty
Knowing how much my readers love jewelry, The Pearl Outlet is offering a 10% discount using the code "purple10". Use it yourself or pass it on to your significant other with your wishlist for the upcoming holidays.
