This is the long, luxurious pearl necklace I have always wanted. The pearls are round and creamy, absolutely beautiful. I shopped around and saw a 16" 7-7.5 mm Akoya pearl necklace for over $1000 in a store that advertises "best prices." I could not be more pleased.
just received the 36" strand of akoya pearls that i purchased for myself, they are stunning, evenly matched and just lovely, wore them to the office yesterday and received numerous compliments. Jeans or a little black dress, they work, there is nothing like the classic beauty of pearls...
These are my first set of pearls and they were absolutely gorgeous. My husband wanted to purchase a single strand of fresh water pearls from Jared's for me for $800 and I will tell you, these look so much better and cheaper! I'm glad I told him to wait and see if I could find better pearls for less online. Thank you Overstock!
This necklace is good bargain price. looks great on the neck. of course as this price, each pearls quality is not high and the surface on the pearls are not perfect at all and not high class. but you cannot complain in this price. I have many high quality akoya pearl jewelry with certification, so i can compare the quality of pearls and this pearls are definitely lower quality in them, but in my collection, not in the jewelry store. you cannot find this good quality in this price at anywhere, only at overstock. i have already many higher quality akoya pearl necklaces for myself over $$$$ pricy for forever treasure that i can give to my daughter and grand daughter in the future. I tried to purchase this necklace because i needed special gift someone and am always happy with pearl jewelry at overstock since they are so good deal. thanks to overstock always!
got this from my husband as a christmas present and is my first akoya pearl. i thought they're of excellent value and gorgeous for the price till i got other higher quality pearls and discovered its lackluster. but still they're beautiful and elegant. went to LA chinatown to have my pearls appraised this afternoon and my mom-in-law's jeweler appraised this piece to be $350-$400 but added that it costs more when you buy it in regular jewelry stores in the mall. guess we just didnt get that much bargain for this necklace since my husband got it last december which costs higher than it's current price in the website. but im still happy with it:)
The pearls were of good quality, but the presentation left a lot to be desired. They came in a very small red velvet like pouch. You would think that after I called about a how they were shipped and they indicated they would be shipped in a box., foolish me. It was a brown carton. You should offer a gift box for $5.99. It woud sell as an add-on.
