Although a little larger than I imagined, I am still pleased with them. I imagined the blue pearls to be a different shade than the black Akoya pearls I purchased awhile back from Overstock, but they were identical; it worked out ok though as they made a great present for my mother. Overall though, they do stand out and look great! Awesome value for both.
I was very disappointed in these earrings. First, the "blue" pearls are more like black with a green sheen to them. Second, due to the size, shape, and the way the stud is connected to the pearl, the earrings do not fit to the ear properly, so they stick out oddly. I have had great success with Overstock in the past, so this is my first letdown. From now on, I'm going to wait until there are more reviews before I buy.
