I bought these for my granddaughter as a Christmas gift. She has always wanted pink pearls and I must say these are a great bargain. I was surprised at the weight and luster of the pearls. Needless to say she was very pleased and I believe these will become her signature neckwear.
The necklace I bought looked a lot larger than the picture showed as far as the size of the pearls. The color was nice, and was what my mom was looking for. This was a gift to her, and because she is older she has a difficult time with clasps she likes the length to be at least 24" +. so she can just put the necklace over her head without using the clasp every time. This may have been an over site on my part when ordering the necklace. Now I have to wait until I see her again (Long distance away) to get the gift back. I am not sure about return policy. It seems to be a lot to do. I feel as if I should have looked personally at a jewelry store to get her just the right gift.
- How did the image on site compare with the actual product? The image made the pearls look larger than they actually are.
- How accurate was the sizing? The length was short, but I may have ordered the wrong length myself.
- Please tell us about the quality of the product. Good color, small pearls, nice clasp.
The pearls are great. I got them for my wife for our anniversary and she loves them. What she doesn't love is the goofy clasp. It was a really hard design to figure out at first. Don't try to force anything. From other reviews I saw you can get the clasp replaced fairly easily and inexpensively. If she likes pink and she likes pearls, she'll love these.
I bought these pearls as a gift for my mother-in-law the image looked beautiful and she's been asking for pink pearls forever. The pearls were a dull color that looked more salmon than pink. The string was terribly cheap and didn't look like it would last at all! The clasp catches and you have to force it open. I have loved EVERYTHING I have purchased at Overstock.com but this was an awful purchase. I couldn't give this gift to anyone. I guess you get what you pay for.
I was very hesitant about purchasing pearls on line , however I was pleasantly surprised at the quality ! ! ! The soft pink color of the pearls is very natural looking ...not dyed. The only thing that I was not happy with was the clasp it was very diffcult to put on...so I went to my jewerler and replaced with a barrel clasp which made it much easier to put on. I purchased for my 27 year old daughter along with the matching earings for Christmas she loves pink . I can't wait to see her expression when she opens on Christmas. I would recommend these pearls to anyone who wants to buy pearls for a loved one without breaking the bank !
Awesome strand for the money. I bought these to replace a strand that was stolen. They don't feel exactly the same as my original strand, but I am enjoying the new one a great deal. Note to those folks who are "new" to pearls, do not shower or swim with pearls on - it is odd, but the water damages the naquer (the surface of the pearl) and can cause the pearls to change color or destroy the surface completely.
