Purchased this necklace as a Christmas gift. I have purchased other jewelry items from Overstock in the past, for birthdays, as well as other occassions and have never been disappointed. This purchase was in keeping with that experience. The pearl is beautiful in color and not too big. The mounting is unique and compliments the pearl beautifully. For the price, I feel like it is a quality piece and it is exactly as Overstock descibes it.Before I had even received this necklace to actually see it and hold it, I purchased another one for an upcoming birthday. So, if you are in the market for a great looking necklace at a very reasonable price, don't hesitate on this one.........you won't be disappointed.
