Pearl Paradise March specials, made with white Akoya keshis and South Sea baroques, are quite the buys: sumptuous, current, unusual enough to please those who like their serene with a shot of style.
PP always have good monthly specials but the designs usually sit on the safely-classic side of the oyster bed. This month they offer two exceptions; great timing for spring gift-giving or just to put a glow near your pretty face.
The necklace mixes seven white South Seas (9mm-10mm) with lustrous Akoya keshis; it's available in 16, 18 or 20 inch sizes; price for 18-inch is $314. Baroques read as more casual than rounds; if you feel your pearls are too 'formal', hop over to baroques.
This piece will not only "go" with everything, it will lift and twirl you.
The pendant, with a tiny keshi "chain" that holds a white South Sea, begins at $200 for the 14mm-15mm size which is perfectly plush, but there are also options for an estimable 15-16mm and a fan-yourself 16-17mm (only $70 more).
If you can wear a 16.5-inch length, I'd jump. (Now, madame; I've heard too many heartbreak stories that go, "I dithered, and PP sold out.")
There is also a bracelet but with only three pearls, I say it's for a petite, fine-boned woman.
Seriously special prices, reputable dealer, thirty-day refund policy. (I see new readers in the Passage so will say again, I'm not a paid reviewer for any vendor.)
