A few special pieces will be debuting next week!

As those of you on our email list know, we’ve been adding new pieces to our mid-year clearance page every Tuesday this month (and most things are snapped up by mid-afternoon). Well next week we’ve got a few new things that we’re extra excited about – round, metallic-white freshwater strands!

If a strand of those mirrored white orbs have been on your list, keep an eye on the sale page on Tuesday morning! The strands are all long (think 35 inches and longer) and truly special!

Merry Christmas from the Pearl Paradise team

Notably absent from our company Christmas photo is our web and IT guy Scott! During the holiday season he genuinely gets into the spirit, and this year decided to donate his time to a Beluga Whale orphanage at the North Pole. He was kind enough to send us a photo to share!

Ah, how we love Photoshop:)

Okay, okay! Just one more:)

Santa Scott Baby!

You shouldn’t have missed Photo day Scott;)

Update: It appears we have been able to fix the glitch just in time!

As many of our friends and customers know, we recently revamped our website. Today we discovered a glitch that is preventing some international customers from completing their orders. We are working hard to determine the cause and find a solution, but it is very possible some people will not be able to complete their transactions this evening during our Black Friday sales event.

We realize that our this sale is very popular and we certainly don’t want anyone to miss out! If you are one of those unable to checkout and would like to take advantage of the Black Friday sale tonight through tomorrow, please email the item number to us at PearlParadise@gmail.com as quickly as possible. If the item is still in stock we will mark one piece out of stock and set it aside for you.

For those that miss out, we will do whatever we can to make it up you. We sincerely apologize in advance.
