These pearls were somewhat disappointing. While they are a pretty strand of pearls, they are not what I expected. They are baroque pearls rather than round pearls which was in no way indicated by their description. Nowhere in the detail does this company say that these pearls vary in size and shape. They are purported to be 8-9mm pearls. The image shown represents them to be all round, almost all the same size and shaped pearls. What I received was less than 8mm in some cases, irregularly shaped pearls which appear significantly smaller in size than my certified 9.0-9.4mm pearls which are all round. This isn't what I wanted or thought I was buying. They are pretty, but they are unquestionably baroque and should be described as such.
So after looking around in local stores for cultured pearls of a decent size I found these pearls. I was hesitant ,as the only pearls I could find for an equivalent price were tiny or very misshapen. I ordered anyways and boy was I glad I did. Only one was noticeably misshapen, the rest looked just as round as the ones going for hundreds of dollars. That one was still hardly noticeable and near the clasp. My girlfriend had wanted a pair of cultured pearls to be able to wear with outfits without having to wear her pearls she inherited. She was very happy with my gift.
i purchased two strands from which i hope to make one strand of the best and most closely matched. they are pretty from a distance but nowhere near close to AA quality as the colors, sheen and shape are far too variable.
...on the other hand, they were less expensive and much prettier than faux pearls i've seen in museum shops which cost much more.
the bottom line is if you want perfect pearls then expect to pay for them. these are good enough for the price.
I ordered the Pearl necklace for myself as an early Christmas gift from my husband. Every single pearl is exquisite & true in color. I absolutely love it! I have worn it a couple of times to various events & have gotten numerous compliments on it. I highly recommend any one ordering it if you want a luxurious strand of pearls. The price was what got my attention at first but the pearls won my heart.
