You get what you buy for the price. It is a pearl necklace, but as mentioned before the dye has clumped on the string between some of the pearls and there were a few that are really oddly shaped. I will wear them, but not for the event that I bought them for... not the color or quality that I was hoping they would have. Good for informal wear though.
this item actually turned out better than anticipated. they were bought as a gift for a carolina gamecock fan (hence the color). i was a little concerned that they might look like beads instead of pearls because of the odd color, but they were really pretty. the color is a little more garnet than red, which works out better i think.
These pearls shipped in a only a small pouch and were not even wrapped. It was as if someone just dropped them in the bag after using them. The condition of the pearls was atrocious. They were scratched and chipped. Again, as if someone had used them and then threw them in the bag for shipping. Overstock should exercise better quality control than this. I've returned the necklace for a refund.
I love overstock. I shop often and have only returned and item once for sizing. This is the first place I go when I am planing on buying something. The minute I opened this item I was disappointed. The picture of the item clearly shows red pearls as in the discription, but these pearls were closer to the chocolate pearls. Not red at all. I would reccommend this item to a friend but with caution. The quality was good but this will not go with anything I had planed to wear it with except maybe black.
I ordered this strand of pearls because it was pictured as red in color and the description was labeled as cultured red freshwater pearls. When it arrived the strand was labeled copper red and it was more copper than red, therefore not red as I had ordered it to be. I think this was misleading to the customer.
The best way to describe the color is coppery red. And they are so luminous! They are stunning - I've never seen red pearls before now. The picture on the site does NOT do them justice. They look much more expensive than they are!! I highly recommend them.
I am very disappointed in this necklace. The 18" length is really a 16". The pearls are smaller than the 6 mm indicated. It appears the pearls are strung, then dyed. The clasp was partially colored and there is a lot of dye built up between the pearls.
Lots of compliments on them. The pearls are symetrical, color is deep and beautiful, would not hesitate to give them as a gift

I just received the necklace today and love it... it reminds me of Christmas and the strings of cranberries... the pearls are not uniform in color which I think makes it more unique...there are variations which gives the item some character. I wish it were a 20 inch length but the 18" is great.
This strand of pearls is nice - except not at all red. It's a brown, which is a fine color. Not burgandy or cranberry - brown. The pearls are nice and evenly sized. I will keep this item because overall it's nice, but will keep looking for the elusive red pearl necklace...
