I bought these to replace a smaller pair I had been wearing for years and had lost. These are sensational on the ears. I am a pearl freak, so I use these as every day earrings. They are just gorgeous. Have received compliments on them several times already. If you like black pearls, you will not be disappointed. And because of their size, if you are gifting someone, that person will fall over because of quality and size.

When I was having trouble deciding on this purchase, I went to the phone. I was in Tahiti a lo-o-ong time ago--and even then, the pearls were expensive. I asked Dion--I believe his name was--to request--as far as possible--the pearls be matched, as black as possible, heavy nacre, good lustre and as few to no flaws. The earrings I received had one noticeable flaw toward the back of the pearl. They are quite large--and a MUCH bigger back is needed. All-in-all, I am pleased and appreciate the help. The waters around Tahiti are being heavily polluted and the pearl beds cannot help but be affected. Pearl is my birthstone, so I am pleased.
I've been looking at Tahitian Pearls for about 6 years, and could never afford ones THIS size, because of the price. When I saw the size and the amazing price, I had to see them. I knew if they weren't in good condition I could return them. Well, to my delight, they are WONDERFUL and now I proudly wear my very large and beautiful Tahitian pearls and let everyone think I paid over $l000 for them! Thank you so much!!
Nice looking pearls. They are big and lustrous with green-grey color, although I was expecting color to be closer to black. There some 0.5 - 0.75 mm dents on both of earrings, but they are hardly noticeable. I loved the feeling of wearing them.
This may only the 2nd time i've ever written a review. Before purchasing the earrings for my wife I read all the previous reviews and thought "what the $%@*" I'll give this a try. By the way these were for a Christmas present and it's one of the only times i've purchased something online. I have been looking for a pair of Tahitian pearl earrings for her for several years but either the funds weren't there or the earrings weren't quite right, they had to match her necklace of course!! When these came in on Christmas eve I only had a few quick seconds to look at them before they were placed under the tree. The first thing I noticed was the fact that these things were huge, but as I looked some more i then thought they were a little dull and i was slightly disappointed. Well then i started to turn them and it was at that moment i realized they were delivered earlier and had been sitting out in the cold by my front door and they were NOT dull at all it was just a bit of condensation from bringing them into the warmth. It turned out that these babies were not only huge but very lustrous and a perfect match in terms of color to her necklace. This is why, as my title states, i was very impressed. A few of the other reviews mentioned a bit of displeasure. ...we all no nothing is perfect but in my case the gamble paid off and i'd definitely recommend this product. On a side note,again these things are big and they did sag a bit in my wifes ears the very first time she tried them on, however she brushed that aside got a different pair of backings or something & had no issue afterwards.
earrings are as pictured. One earring was slighty darker than the other. you will Need to invest in larger backs, the earrings need more support than the backs that come with them.

The pearl is beautiful but smaller than I thought. It looks more like 9mm-10mm. I own several 10mm pearl and this looks equal to or less than the size. That's the only reason I returned it.

When I received these earrings, I couldn't believe what I saw before me -these earrings are totally awesome, so large and so very beautiful. I am very well pleased with my purchase as the quality is unbelievable, and the color was just what I wanted - VERY VERY PLEASED AND SATIFIED.
I have been purchasing some pearls in the past so I think I know little bit about pearl. These pearls have different colors. One is greenish and the other is grayish. The surfaces are very rough and have some pits. One pearl is larger than the other pearl. When I first ordered 8mm titian studs with diamonds, the pearls looked great. I returned them since the earrings are hanging from my earlobe (since they have small backs), I was not able to see the diamonds. Thus, I decided to buy diamond studs and pearl studs separately. This pearl seems to have much lower grades than the previous one. I am afraid to buy another studs here since I cannot be sure that the pearls are what I wanted or shown in the pictures. Returning takes time and extra money and don't know I can get better ones this time so, afraid to order another jewerly from this website. Hope I can find better ones from Overstock.
