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 $79, you get an 18-inch pearl necklace in a choice of 12 colors from My Pacific Pearls' online store (a $450 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 Maria-Theresa Reef Collection's 18-inch princess-style necklace carries 9- to 10-millimeter pearls and comes in 12 naturally acquired colors, including classic white, tahitian black aubergine, tahitian black peacock, peach, gray, pink, gold, chocolate brown, midnight black, classic white and champagne, classic white and tahitian black, and multicolor. A 14-karat white-gold filled clasp unites the land's precious fabrics of land and sea. After a long day of neck draping, a complimentary satin or velour pouch securely tucks necklaces in with a kiss and a bedtime story. The pearls, which hail from several freshwater oyster villages in the South-Pacific region, link to form a bauble whose versatile length is intended to complement any neckline. Each necklace comes with high ratings for luster, nacre, surface, shape, and pearl matching.
As with actual princesses, each princess necklace comes with care instructions and a certificate of authenticity and valuation. Groupon customers also receive two $50 vouchers toward future purchases from the wide array of jewelry on the My Pacific Pearls website; the vouchers must be used in two separate orders, each totaling at least $100.
