Beautiful necklace Great luster!! I have several strands of pearls, but wanted larger diameter. Looked at lots of places, and this was by far the best value. Yes, there are some small flaws on some of the pearls, but that's the way nature made them! If you want a flawless set, then be prepared to spend thousands. I would order these again in a heartbeat!
These little fellows finally allowed me to make good on my promise to give my lady some pearls. They were hung on the Christmas tree to make the hunt even better.

This a nice strand of pearls...regular with a pretty good luster. They're not as pink as I like, but I realize that you get what you get from Overstock. I have worn them quite a few times, and I have like their length.

This 24 inch string of pearls is more than satisfactory. The pearls are uniform in size. Their texture is smooth. The shape of each pearl is round. The color is white. A little more cream and glow would be OK. The clasp is easy to use. This is very good value for the money based on the price of pearls, freshwater and sea water pearls that are advertised anywhere.
This was definitely one of those impulse purchases; nonetheless, my wife was very glad to receive this pearl necklace as a "stocking stuffer" on Christmas morning. The pearls were very nice -- not perfect -- but were just as described (AA) and more than acceptable for the price. This 24" length is just right to wear as a single strand. You cannot beat this price for pearls of this size and quality.
These Akoya pearls are outstanding. I was leery of buying jewelry site unseen, but these exceeded my expectations. They are just plain beautiful, and you won't find Akoya pearls of this quality on the web for a better price (or anywhere for that matter). I can't wait to see the look on my wife's face when I give these to her for Christmas.
I've always wanted a nice strand of pearls. I finally bought these for myself for Christmas. I love them, love them, love them. I get wonderful comments every time I wear them from the "rich" & the "famous". They have a slight pink tent to them. I think they are absolutely elegant. Maybe I lucked out getting a perfect strand based on some of the other comments. I couldn't be happier. I just wonder how they could sell them so cheap. Is there something I'm missing? Oh, I got the earrings to match at Overstock as well. I love them too! If you get the strand, you must have the earrings as well. Nothing goes with pearls like pearls. And the coloring matched perfectly!!!
First let me say that I am extremely critical. So my bias may me toward the negative. However these pearls were nice for the money. A great value. Gave them to my wife as a gift and she hasn't taken them off. She loves them so much. The color is white/slightly creamy, size is uniform. Luster is pretty good. A couple of the pearls have blemishes visible with the unaided eye, but you'd never notice it without looking closely. The stringing could have been better with regard to the placement of the pearls. The single pearl with the worst imperfection is right in the middle of the strand, so it is dead-center in front when she wears it. As I said, you can't see it, but still a skillful stringer would have placed that pearl so it fell under the hairline a few pearls away from the clasp. It is also strung a little too tightly so it is pulled up, crooked and doesn't lay just straight. I pulled it tight at the offending spots and it's ok now. These are a great buy for the money. Where are you going to get genuine decent Akoyas for this price. I would buy another set without hesitation if I needed them.
We ordered these for our daughter's 21st birthday present. Something lovely to keep forever. We love them. They glisten with light and appear flawless. The great price allowed us to give her something she will truely treasure. Thank you.
I purchsed these as a gift for my wife. We are both pleased with the appearance and quality of this necklace. The pearls are lusterous, well matched and of good quality. If there is a shortcomming, I would liked to have seen a lobster claw clasp for ease. Otherwise we are both quite happy with this purchase.
Ordered this 24inch pearls strand as present, but am extremely disappointed in the quality when we received them. There was NOT a single pearl that did not have a defect, some blemish on the surface, notching, or even discoloration. I'd be embarrassed to try to give these to anyone.
