I sold jewelry for over 4 years during college for a very reputable jewelry store, so please listen to this review before buying these pearls. These are not AA quality pearls. They are all included (marks, defects, etc.) and vary in size more than .5 mm as described. Their shape is poor, their colors mismatched, and the nacre has very little luster. They are strung badly and as a result do not drape properly. The length would be more accurate at 23" not 24¿. I have to say overall that I am disappointed in this product. I agree with the other person that reviewed these with a 1 star review. They appear to be seconds. They were shipped loose in a box with a square of bubble wrap, a small open velour bag, and were rattling around in the box when UPS delivered them (poorly packaged). Bottom line, if I wanted a good strand of pearls I guess I shouldn't have purchased them sight unseen over the internet.
These pearls are beautiful!!! My husband originally bought me a strand from an overpriced jeweler for Christmas and when I found out how much he paid, I had him take them back. We searched for pearls everywhere and decided to try Overstock. We were amazed at the quality. Not only did we receive a higher grade of pearls, but we paid a third of the price. The customer service department fielded our numerous questions with professionalism and we received the items as promised. We will definitly be buying from them again.
when you open the package containing these pearls, be prepared to be stunned. they are absolutely beautiful, and "glow" as only fine pearls can. i was so ready to be disappointed because the price was so low, but really thrilled when they arrived. a truly amazing value, AND i'll be a superstar on christmas day!
I bought this strand of pearls for my mother for Christmas. I put them in a well know local jewelers box, and I could tell she thought we paid a ton for them! The pearls were much nicer than expected. In fact, I bought another strand that sold for $249 through Overstock.com and returned them, because I could not tell a difference in color or quality. I plan on buying another strand for myself! These make a wonderful present.
