For this Vantel Pearls Party review, I was provided with a complimentary product for review. However, all opinions are my honest thoughts on the product and experience.
The first time I heard of a pearl party was from a friend. They do what? Open real oysters and pull out pearls? It was a crazy concept to me but I was intrigued. I watched several “pearl parties” online before but I had never actually participated.
In this Vantel Pearls Party review, I will give you my honest opinion of my first pearl party experience and the product that was received.
Vantel Pearls Party Review
First of all, gone are the days of the in home jewelry party. You don’t need a babysitter and you can wear your pj’s to this party! You simply click on the Facebook link to join The Cool Pearl Lady aka Jessica for a fun pearl party experience.
In this Vantel Pearls party review, I will go over the steps that you take pre-party, during the party and after the party.
Prior to the Party
Before the party, review the website and pick out the jewelry that you would like to have your pearl set in.
At the party that I attended, Jessica had a special running for a specific item that was an awesome deal or you could choose whatever item you wanted from the catalog.
People start to arrive at the party at the scheduled time and do a little online chatting while people are still joining (just like you would at an in person party). I added a glass of wine to my party because I am festive like that. Plus a party without wine is a meeting?
I did not know anyone at the party but everyone was so inviting! Jessica is the Vantel Pearls consultant and she is so fun. I felt like I was chatting with a bunch of my girl friends.
So back to the pearls. Jessica has a big container of real oysters on her table. Yes, real. She starts calling the names of the people that preordered a pearl.
When she calls your name, you can pick your oyster or you can have her select one.
She will even sprinkle some magic pixie dust or give your oyster some good juju if you are hoping for a particular color or size.
Time to crack that oyster open! She does it like a boss! I was actually really impressed with her knowledge of the pearls. Pearls are her passion and it shows!
During the party that I attended we got lucky and saw lots of colors. To be honest before this party, I thought pearls were classic white. Maybe a Black here or there. I was so wrong! We saw pink and even a lavender! There are champagne and gold. They are simply gorgeous.
If you didn’t preorder, you can just comment during the party and let Jessica know that you want in on the pearl party fun.
After the Pearl Party
After everyone says goodnight, Jessica gets to work sending your pearl and the jewelry that you want to be set.
A few weeks later, you will get your piece in the mail.
I chose a simple setting called the “Luna”. The necklace is absolutely perfect for me. It is simple enough that I can wear it every day or it can be dressed up for more formal occasions.
Pearls to me just scream sophistication and the settings that they have to offer modernize it from your grandmother’s traditional string of pearls. I have literally worn it every day since I got it a week ago.
Here it is! See how perfect it looks with any outfit? The one that I got was classic white though it may not look that way here because Instagram filters are life & help me cover up those tired under eye bags since my sweet baby never sleeps. I know ya’ll get that!
How to Host
If you want to host the party, you get even more benefits. Free stuff!
If you friends spend $250, you get a free hostess piece with an oyster opening. There are also bonuses if you get 10 friends to make a purchase at your party and you get a percentage of the sales to spend on jewelry from the catalog with more oyster openings!
Just get with Jessica and set a date. Then you can invite your friends to join the event. If you are a mom of young kids like me, you know it is so hard to find time for a girls night! I love this because you can do it virtually with your wine and Vantel Pearls. So fun and easy.
Of course you could gift a piece of jewelry from Vantel. But after doing the research for the Vantel Pearls Party review and participating in a party, I can confidently say that this really is an experience not just a product. Part of the fun is getting your pearl out of that little oyster!
Thankfully, the Cool Pearl Lady offers gift certificates if you want to gift the pearl party experience this holiday season!
This would be such a fun gift for your mom, sister, friend or those hard to buy for like your mother in law!
It is more fun than a gift card to a mall store but the recipient still gets to choose what they want and a piece that fits their style!
I was not 100% sure what to expect when I started this Vantel Pearl party review.
I had a general idea of how the online piece of the party worked. A consultant opens Pearls and then they are sent off and set.
What I had not prepared for was the genuine excitement and anticipation that I felt waiting on my pearl to be opened. Watching the parties has always captured my attention but knowing that you have a surprise pearl in an oyster changes the game. It is like a surprise blind bag for adults! (Are your kids obsessed with those things? Mine sure are!).
The other thing that I had not really expected was the laughter. Jessica has a great way about her that will keep you laughing and overall just boost your mood. After a long day of diapers, homework, cooking dinner and working, it is nice to sit back with a glass of vino and do nothing but watch pearls being opened!
I was even getting excited for other people (especially those lucky enough to score those beautifully colored pearls).
The product comes with a small organza fabric bag making it even easier to gift it to someone. Or if you are like me and keeping it for yourself, it is always nice when it comes wrapped up pretty!
I hope this Vantel Pearls party review helps you to decide to participate in a pearl reveal or to host your own party. It really is a fun way to add a new piece of quality jewelry to your collection.
