Having never purchased a strand of pearls before, I can't rate the perfection and quality of this necklace. What I can rate is the reaction by my wife had when she saw them. She absolutly loved these pearls. I scored some huge points with her. The price for this necklace is great for newly weds or for people who just don't have hundreds of dollars sitting around waiting to be spent. If you are hesitating, don't! Get these pearls for your loved one, you can't go wrong.
I was cautiously optimistic about how these pearls would look - especially given such a low price. I ordered a stran for myself, which arrived surprisingly fast, and they are simply beautiful. After seeing them, I ordered another stran for a friend. I would recommend these pearls to anyone!
I ordered 2 to possibly donate to 2 Tricky Trays I volunteer for because of my children. When I received them, I took one to a reputable jeweler in my town to be sure they were real and sure enough, he said the value surpassed what I paid for. Now these two strands can be one of the Super Grand Prizes valued at 250.00 each! Thankyou for making my donation worth while!
The describtion didn't say that this was fresh water pearls and even though they are very nice looking they were not what I was expecting. I wanted round not irregular pearls for this gift and was sad to find the mostly round but definately irregluar shaped pearls in my order. If the description had stated fresh water I would have know that they would arrive being irregluar even though the picture looked round.
The perals are overall nice for the price, but they are strung too tight and kink in places. The clasp is lowsey and hard to put on by yourself. I was disappointed because usually, in my experience Overstock delivers nice products, but this is mearly average. Also, the perals are not completly round, but with this set, you can only tell if you are looking very closely.
