I had to hock my mom's fine cultured pearls almost 11 years ago and I have cried over and over to think of the loss to the family, but when these arrived from Overstock.com last month, I felt I had finally replaced them for the succeeding generations. Thank you, thank you...they are lovely, perfect. My only criticism is the weak, rather small clasp...but, over-all, I am thrilled w/ the quality and luster, not to mention the ridiculous low price !!
Very happy with purchase, it was a birthday gift for my wife and she loved it. The quality of the pearls is very high for the price you are paying. As other reviewers stated, the necklace arrives in a red pouch - I bought a box separately and placed the pearls in that and wrapped it up. The complaints about what the necklace is shipped in is unwarranted - this is a discount site - you're not paying for a beautiful display box.
I am always looking for a nice Christmas gift for my wife. When this came in the mail, I was a little nervous that it wouldn't fit the bill. I was pleasantly surprised... My wife originally wanted a pearl choker, but since this necklace is so long, she can loop it around and wear it as a choker, or loose as a longer necklace. It's a great peice and a wonderful addition to her collection of fine jewelry - and of course, you can't beat the price! Overall, great buy.
I read some of the reviews and was very pleased with what I read. The pearls were a X'mas gift for my Wife and I checked the gift box on the on-line order form. The item came in a psuedo velvet like bag instead of the normal plastic zip lock bag. I inspected the pearls and found them to be free of any flaws and the overall color was good, not great- thats why I gave it 4 out of 5 stars, but what do expect for that price. The clasp and the way it was anchored to the clasp was of the standard type, not that of high end jewelry, but again, it is in line with the price. The most amazing part of the purchase was the quality of the pearls themselves, they had good symmetry and shape coupled with the good color made for a great buy at that price. Great overall purchase.
I received these pearls for Christmas and the are beautiful! I am having issues with the clasp though, I'm sure it is working probably but once I opened the clasp I haven't been able to close it properly, any ideas on how to close the clasp?
But disappointed how they came packaged. Placed in a small bag and put into a delicate plastic shipping bag. A necklace box would be appropriate. I had additionally bought another necklace and matching ear rings that were delivered the same way, boxless.
