Review and Giveaway: Pure Pearls Freshwater Pearl Drop Earrings (US/CAN, Rafflecopter, 7/31)

Of all the things in my jewelry box, I think hands down my pearls are my favorite, because they are ageless, timeless, and have endless beauty.  When I wear pearls, they make me feel special, and I know they simply glow.

They enhance our beauty, and they give us a sense of pride and confidence...  and they make us feel really, REALLY special.  I believe I've worn pearls for every major life event (as a ballerina, graduations, family pictures, social events and my wedding).

I also believe that pearls are one of the most versatile pieces of jewelry ever.  They can be dressed up or worn with your favorite t-shirt and comfy pair of jeans.  They are great to wear on special occasions, or on a shopping trip.

I've personally got a nice variety of pearl jewelry, from my Grandmother's strand of pearls, to my newer pearl earrings, bracelet and necklace.  I even have a few pieces that were made from the fun Hawaiian oysters you open as a tourist.  I just received my first pair of Freshwater Pearl Dangle Earrings, and I absolutely love them!  The first afternoon I wore them, I had two compliments (one from a friend, one from a complete stranger) within half an hour!

Need a gift for Mother's Day, a birthday, a new ballerina, a new bride, a graduate? Pearls are perfect!  They also make a perfect gift for yourself!

I've found the selection and prices at to be wonderful, and their quality is amazing.  The site is elegant, easy to navigate, and they have a huge selection of pearl jewelry in all price ranges with free shipping in the US.  They have a large assortment including: Tear Drop Earrings, Freshwater Pearls, Pearl Sets, and even some great pearl jewelry for Men.

I was given the opportunity to review Pure Pearls' White Freshwater Drop Dangle Pearl Earrings in 6.5 - 7.0mm with sterling silver ear wires.  Each set is made to order, and the hand-matched pearls are set on Sterling Silver French hooks.  Each pair also comes with a certified appraisal completed by a GIA graduate and comes beautifully packaged in a black velvet box.

I was so excited to put the earrings on, and I was very grateful that they came with tiny clear anchors to help keep the earrings on.  I've always been nervous wearing French hooks, but they look and feel so nice!  (I've got a 5 year old and a 2 year old, so hair gets pulled and jewelry gets played with when I wear it)

The earrings arrived inside an elegant velvet box, which was nestled inside a white gift box.  The earrings came with a GIA Prepared Appraisal Certificate, and care instructions.  

I had previously reviewed a beautiful Lavender pearl necklace, Lavender Pearl Earrings and a Lavender Pearl Bracelet from Pure Pearls.
