Our Story

Over Two Decades of Growth...

Founded in 1996 and brought online in 2000, Pearl Paradise has grown into the world's largest online pearl company. With a custom-built, 1,300-cubic-foot vault filled with pearls, we offer a selection of pearls unlike any other pearl seller, online or off. Our commitment to offering prices 80 percent below retail has accelerated our growth.

With more than a quarter million satisfied customers to date, we have benefited greatly by word-of-mouth advertising. Our commitment to quality, customer service and unbeatable pricing and selection has helped us become the Internet’s premier source of pearl jewelry.

A Trusted Name

The reputation we have built based on the quality of our merchandise has attracted the attention of journalists around the world. We have been blessed with glowing articles in The Wall Street Journal, The Financial Times, USA Today, Entrepreneur Magazine, Investor’s Business Daily, and Inc. Magazine, to name just a few.

The pearl and jewelry industry has followed our growth and featured us in respected industry publications like Modern Jeweler, Jewelry News Asia, and JCK.

Shop Online or Offline

While most of our business is conducted online, we offer appointments for our local clientele in our luxurious Los Angeles showroom. We offer only one appointment per day, and these are often booked weeks in advance. No appointments are available November 1st through January 10th.

With thousands of pearl strands for clients to see, we insist on giving our undivided attention. This unique experience has created a following of celebrities and pearl connoisseurs who are regulars in our showroom.

Team of Experts

At Pearl Paradise, we are all world-class pearl experts. Every team member is required to complete the Gemological Institute of America's pearl diploma program.

In addition, our entire team has completed the Pearls as One, Cultured Pearl Association of America's Pearl Specialist Certification. This course was written and created by our own CEO, Jeremy Shepherd.
