we are all about customer care.

Pearl Paradise sources and stocks every single pearl they sell. Pearls are housed in a custom-built 1300 cubic-foot vault right in the heart of the company.  “Pieces are made to order by in-house craftspeople right in our Los Angeles location,” says Hisano. “We can make an expertly matched strand, for example, in any length, any pearl size, any color or overtone, and we can do this because every single pearl we sell is in our possession.”

For their high-end one-of-a-kind necklaces and bracelets, each creation is individually photographed in the in-house studio. That means the photo you see online is the actual item you’ll receive. Despite claims to the contrary, no other pearl seller does this. “And while we do use representative photography for items like earrings and pendants (due to the sheer volume of selection),” says Hisano, “if a customer requests a photo of a specific item for them to inspect, we’re happy to provide that, and we’ll hold that specific item so that if they decide to purchase, that’s the very item they’ll receive.”
