If not for necklaces, strings of pearls could only be used to fashion an ostentatious abacus or rappel into the purse of a high-society giantess. Explore pearls' myriad uses with today's Groupon: for $49, you get one pair of pearl stud earrings in a choice of five colors from My Pacific Pearls’ online store (a $175 value). Complimentary shipping is included with this Groupon; please allow one to three weeks.
My Pacific Pearls gathers freshwater pearls that go on to live dry-land lives as opulent necklaces, earrings, and other classic and contemporary pieces. The Hollywood Glamour Collection's pearl stud earrings carry 10.5- to 11-millimeter pearls in five naturally acquired colors, including white, silver-gray, peach, lilac, and tahitian black. The comfort-fit bottoms of their 14-karat yellow- or white-gold posts nestle securely against earlobes, crafting a perfectly round silhouette when viewed from the front. After a long day of making every sound a little classier, earrings are tucked into a complimentary silver or gold gift box with a kiss and a bedtime story. The pearls, which hail from several freshwater oyster villages in the South Pacific region, all garner high ratings for luster, nacre, surface, shape, and pearl matching.
As with an actual Hollywood star, each pair of Hollywood Glamour earrings comes with care instructions and a certificate of authenticity and valuation. Groupon customers also receive three $50 vouchers toward future purchases from the wide array of jewelry on My Pacific Pearls' website; the vouchers must be used in three separate orders, each totaling at least $100.
