Pearl Distributors Black Freshwater Pearl Necklace Review & #Giveaway

There may be some women out there in the world who who don't care for jewelry, but I certainly am not one of them. I love a beautiful piece of jewelry! Pearls are not really something I have given much thought to. I have a traditional set that once belonged to m great grandmother, and I naively thought that was how all pearls looked. I had no there was a variety of pearl colors out there but once I realized it, I had to get my hands on some.


Pearl Distributors offers a wide selection of various types, sizes and colors of pearl jewelry including necklaces, bracelets, earrings and more. I have to admit that I was surprised to see lavender and black pearls, since I had never seen those colors before. This of course then led to a day long battle in my head, and a survey of my Facebook friends, of which color to choose. I ended up going with a black freshwater pearl necklace because I loved how they have almost an iridescent glow to them and there are purples and blues mixed in there. The necklace I received is beautiful and I am so happy with my color choice.


The necklace arrived quickly and safely in a felt lined box and also came along with it's appraisal papers. Being the purple clothes hoarder that I am, I of course immediately wore it with a purple shirt and I think they went beautifully together. The clasp on the back comes in either yellow or white gold. The mechanism was a little bit tricky for me at first but once I figured it out, it was easy to get on and off. I like it because i think it would be very difficult for it to become unclasped and fall from your neck. Overall I am very pleased with my necklace and now I want some earrings to match!
