I found this company because of their Web site and noticed they were in LA. I have been looking for a nice white strand for my niece's graduation in June. I had resigned myself to either not purchasing a good strand of pearls or buying some ugly potato necklace.\r
Then I found Pearl Paradise.\r
The place is unbelievable. I was there for two hours and I could have stayed the entire day. I am not exaggerating when I say they must have 10,000 different strands of pearls, every size, color and type available. The best part... the prices. I walked out with the most beautiful strand of cultured pearls I have ever seen and spent less than $300.\r
This place is a hidden gem in the city. They do not advertise offline because their primary business is the internet, but if you are looking for pearls you HAVE to check this place out. There is just nothing else out there that can compare.
Pros: Selection, privacy (one customer in showroom at a time), price
