The necklace is very similar to the current pictures and description in the listing (as of March 2010). Pearls do vary slightly in size. Some are very close to round, while others are off-round. Luster is similar to as shown in the photos. Minor blemishes on some pearls. There's a pretty yellow gold filigree hook and eye clasp, stamped 14k. Overall, this necklace is as described and shown in the listing. It will be great for the office.
