Ordered a 18" necklace but sent it back because it felt like it 'choked' me... found this 20" necklace and was glad I ordered it. Was much nicer and was the perfect length! Hangs nice around the neck and was the perfect length for my outfits. Pearls were not completely round but were nice...no flaws that I could see. I'm going to enjoy wearing this strand of pearls!
