I traveled to China to purchase a pearl necklace like this for my niece. Prices were outrageous. When I returned home I decided to shop on my favorite site, Overstock.com and found exactly what I had traveled half the world to find. Thank you, the necklace is lovely and I didn't spend a fortune.

These pearls are just what I wanted and expected. They have a lovely lustre and fall beautifully around the neck once, twice, or three times, whichever I like. I was so pleased with their color and the fact that each pearl was individually knotted. They all lay flat, no kinking so were well put together. A lovely addition to my collection which I will treasure for many years.

While the pearls themselves are similar in size and pretty symmetrical, they're terribly stranded and do not fall well at all. Because of that, the necklace looks cheap and fake. In this case, it's true that you get what you pay for. I would spend the extra money and get a quality strand of pearls.
They are alll indiviually knotted. Most of them have slight scratches and flaws which probably won't be noticed unless someone is looking closely. Many are not perfectly round but more egg shapped or off round shaped. I still think it's a pretty weighty necklace and will be giving as a gift.
I bought this in order to be able to play with my pearl necklace a bit. I have a bunch of other pearl necklaces, but what I like about this one is that I can tie it in a knot (as seen in the photo), loop it twice with it being a choker and longer necklace in one, have it looped similar lengths twice, and loop it three times for a nice look with a little black dress. There are some imperfections with the pearls, but it's a beautiful piece for every day wear.
This is a very elegant piece. The pearls are different shades of white and that's what I love about this. They feel heavy and expensive but they are such a great, reasonable price! The only negative thing I have to say is that I agree with the other posts. Unless you have a head shaped like a carrot and a pencil thin neck, ya can't wear these looped four times around your neck. I think that is mostly the fault of Overstock or the manufacturer for representing them like that, though. I wear them looped three times, I've worn them as a belt with a fancy little faux black diamond brooch holding the ends together, I've worn them looped once with a knot tied in them, I wore them as a bracelet once. And I've only had them a week! They are so versatile and I get so many compliments on them. I hit the jackpot on this one!
Very beautiful, strong and well made. I love them and would recommend them to anyone who loves the classic look of pearls. I bought the matching earrings and I feel like a million bucks when I have them on. They work well with casual as well as dressed attire.
These pearls are beautiful. No the strand won't create a 4 strand necklace, but they are knotted, and beautiful color. My strand was not dead white but more creamy. Well matched. For what is essentially the cost of costume jewelry these pearls can't be beat!
I bought this because it looks like a four strand necklace on the picture. Unfortunately when I opened them and tried them on, they could be wrapped around the neck a MAXIMUM of three times without choking. Overall they are beautiful so if you like pearls, buy them. I bought them for my mother as well as myself. My mother loves them despite the fact that they are a little different in person. I like them too I just wish I could wrap them around my neck four times as pictured.
I ordered this necklace because I'd been searching for a nice long pearl necklace that I could wrap around my neck 3 times. I found the perfect one in this necklace. It is heavy, not at all cheap feeling or looking. I love it with my little black dress or with an open collared shirt for a more casual look. You cannot go wrong with this item.
A lovely strand of knotted, well matched white pearls. No obvious blemishes whatsoever! These are a substantial weight and quite elegant. To wear a four strand look required the use of a pearl connector in the back. However, I find triple looping them is simply gorgeous. Highly recommend!
