Lately people on Facebook have been sharing these live video streams of people opening up oysters to reveal their pearls. Have you seen them? They are so addicting!
One of the companies Open An Oyster, LLC is my favorite one to watch! I’ve been following them for the last month or so on their Facebook. They have live openings every Monday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday.
Anyway, this last Monday they had an amazing audience of over 13,000 people watching, including myself, and ended up giving away 7 tray openings because they had so many people join in. Happily, I ended up being one of the winners!
They sell the individual oysters on their website ($25 per oyster to be opened live on the live stream) or your can purchase tray of 4 oysters for $100 and you get the 5th one free! If you decide you’d like to open the oysters your self you can also purchase them online for $20 each (plus shipping).
One of the pluses to having them open the oysters live on Facebook is if by the slim chance there isn’t a pearl once the oyster is opened, they will open up a new one! Which I think is pretty awesome. There is no guarantee that if you don’t end up finding a pearl in the ones that are shipped you. They’ve only found 3 oysters without the pearl live during the openings and this is a pretty rare occurrence. They’ve opened over 7,000 so far!
Anyway, here’s a link to the now recorded live opening of my 5 oysters! You can see my oysters at about the 7:30 minute mark.
I’ve screen shot the section from Brittany (the owner of Open An Oyster, LLC) opening my oysters and they are posted below.

I can not WAIT to get my oysters! I’ll be posting an unboxing video when I get them and also will post pictures in a new blog post once they arrive.
Open an Oyster, LLC also sells pendants and necklaces that their pearls fit in to. They are sterling silver coated or sterling. Please check out the shop section of their website.
I plan on ordering the Lotus pendant for my lovely lavender pearl!
Thank you so very much Brittany! I love my pearls and can’t wait to get them.
The company will hopefully be expanding and will be looking for hostesses to host their online opening parties soon.
Here’s the link to my UNBOXING!
