I have always wanted a high quality single pearl necklace like this at an affordable price and I finally found it! The creamy, lustrous color of this fine Akoya pearl is the perfect accent to light up any neckline, plain or formal. I will wear this a great deal and take it with me when I travel. I have replaced the very fine, fragile chain with a favorite, more durable one, for the sake of security.
The pearl itself has a nice luster. It's medium size, and a bit larger than I expected, but I think my mother will like it. The only issue was the latch on the chain. I know that since my 30 year old hands couldn't get it latched, my mother's would not be able to, so I had to go buy a different chain. That was an added expense that I did not anticipate.
This should be a well made, beautiful quality item. It doesn't live up to the pictures and description. The chain is so delicate that I am afraid to wear it. Other reviewers said the pearl comes off the setting easily. Mine hasn't yet, but that also concerns me. My main complaint is the setting. It is situated strangely. It makes the pearl hang at an awkward angle. It's a nice pearl, but I'll probably look into a better setting, and maybe use another chain... which means more expense. I would return it, but I really dislike dealing with mail order returns.
- How did the image on site compare with the actual product? Looks nicer in image.
- How accurate was the sizing? As expected.
- Please tell us about the quality of the product. Lower than expected.
This is a beautiful pendant which I own thanks to the affordable price offered by the Overstock company on Thanksgiving holiday. It is a piece of jewlery which I wanted to own for a long time but only had the means to do it this past November. I adore it since it is also my birth stone. The only thing I wish for was to have had the necklace a little longer...
