I knew from an early age what I wanted to do and what career I wanted to go into. My older sister blazed the way for me as a Nurse Practitioner and I saw her life and impact she made and knew that is exactly what I wanted to do. She attended the University of Pennsylvania for Graduate school so when she got into the program my parents bought her a set of pearls. They said since it was an Ivy League school she needed her “Penn Pearls“.
So when that time came around for me and I was choosing where to apply to graduate school the top of my list was University of Pennsylvania as they were the number one program for what I was going into. I applied and waited.
My parents came up to Gainesville to visit me for the weekend and they had an envelope and a present. I opened the present first. It was my own set of “Penn Pearls” and then I ripped open my acceptance letter. I can still remember that day like it was yesterday.
When I was contacted by Laguna Pearl and was asked to participate in a collaboration I jumped at the chance to add to my collection. They offer a range of Black Tahitian, White South Sea, and Golden South Sea pearls, in addition to a wide selection of all natural Japanese Akoya and Freshwater pearls. Their pearls are always cultured and the pearl colors are never dyed. They have been in business for over 20 years and offer you their products at a wholesale price. They also offer a 60 day money back guarantee and free shipping. Cannot beat that.
They send specialists all over the world to hand pick the finest the pearl farms have to offer. Since they import thousands of pearls every month, they can purchase the pearls at a fraction of the cost offered to retailers and then pass those savings directly on to you! Additionally, being an online store, they don’t have the same overhead costs of retail stores and that means more savings for you. They really have amazing quality for great prices.
This is the gorgeous pearl necklace that I choose. I was very impressed with the quality and weight of the necklace.
I personally think a little black dress with pearls is the classiest combo ever what do you think?
My Aunt always passes down wisdom. Do you know quickly how to tell if a pearl necklace is real? This is awesome if you are ever antiquing and someone is claiming it is real. Rub the peal on the front part of your tooth. If it is gritty then you know it’s real. If it is smooth then it isn’t. Thanks Aunt Dona for that one!
Do you have a special piece of jewelry that is close to your heart and why?
