This "AA" quality pearls are a great bang for your buck. I bought this for my wife and she loves them. For people who do not know about pearl quality rating then just google it. I say this because for people who expect them to be perfect may be disappointed. "A" is the lowest jewelery quality pearls "AAA" is excellent and "AA" is just the right mix of quality vs price. On wholesale website you will see "AAAA" which is not an official rating but jewelery stores will buy them to put there best brand on them and thus is the most expensive.
I was hesitant to make a jewelry purchase online without being able to see and hold the item. However, I was pleasantly surprised! These pearls have a substantial weight and a wonderful sheen. The quality was even better than I was expecting. Although I was somewhat dismayed that I had to pay postage due upon receipt.
This necklace is a nice gift to give to a new daughter in law. I am pleased to present it to her. It came in a the proper amount of time but I wish it would come in a box. That makes a better looking gift. Now I have to find a box for it. It only goes around the neck 3 times, not 4, but is still a lovely necklace.
This is a beautiful necklace. The pearls are a good size and has wonderful luster. I was also pleasantly surprised by the quality. You can't beat this price. I saw a similar strand online from a department store for $199 and that's marked down from $500. Very glad that I didn't make that purchase. I am very pleased with how quickly the necklace arrived too.
The strand I recieved is very pretty. The pearls are not perfect, but the flaws are quite subtle. Color is a bright, pure white, pearls are round with only occasional slight dimples (really, barely noticable). For the price I think this strand is a great bargain. I have worn the necklace long with a knot tied in it, and looped for a shorter effect. These are freshwater pearls, I would judge them to be AA rating based on comparison to rated pearls I have bought from jewelers
These are beautiful, even better than I expected! Perfectly matched, and round, but with enough character that you know they are freshwater pearls. They have a satisfying weight and the 8 mm size is perfect. Can be worn many different ways.LOVE!
I needed a pearl necklace to match one that I already owned- these look like they will match perfectly!

To begin, these pearls are very white and most have a very high luster and beautiful orient. Unfortunately, many of the pearls are button pearls, not off-round, and the flat side is dull and looks more like chalk than pearl nacre. This might not bother most people, but it is an obvious feature, as the flat, dull sided pearls visibly dot their way throughout the shiny high luster pearls, which I found to be disturbing enough to return them. It might be that I received a defective strand and others will not be made the same way, but I wasn't willing to take the chance with a replacement and chose to buy something else with more consistent shape and luster. Button pearls belong on rings and earrings, not necklaces.

I really love this necklace but there were a few things about it that seems slightly misrepresented by the picture. In the picture the pearls look round and when in fact they are irregularly shaped (some are oval or round but many are not), this doesn't bother me but may bother others. They are well matched, in the sense that as a whole the necklace looks great and when wearing it only someone that knows about pearls would really see the irregularity. The sheen of the pearls is less than what the picture shows but makes sense based on the pearl quality listed in the description. I read a negative review someone gave this necklace before I bought it that stated they couldn't get it to wrap around three times. I could get it to, so I guess it is just a matter of head size. Overall, I am very happy with this product, it adds elegance to any outfit but can still be wore casually.
- How did the image on site compare with the actual product? The image make the pearls look a bit nicer than they actualy are. They seemed rounder and more brilliant.
- How accurate was the sizing? I think it was accurate, I didn't measure it but it seems right.

I was so reluctant to purchase these without seeing them first. I had bought some similar pearls at Nordstrom's for a couple of hundred dollars over the simmer and return them because the look very cheap. I must say I could never imagine for the price how amazing these would be . Thank you Overstock!

I was looking at pearl necklaces at department stores, and nothing really seemed worth the money -- really small pearl necklaces that aren't knotted between each pearl (just strung together loosely) cost a lot at retail! I bought this necklace and it's exactly what I needed -- a heavy, sturdy pearl rope that I can fiddle with at work (I'm the fidgety type). The quality is good for "AA", the pearls are not completely round and do have flaws, but are not too noticeable. And the necklace is knotted between each pearl, so you feel like it's secure and durable. Not 5 stars only because it doesn't quite hang perfectly -- the knotting makes it a little crooked. But otherwise, I am very happy with this purchase.
I am very satisfied with my purchase. These pearls are the perfect length or layer or loop & leave long. Perfect size and beautiful luster. Will absolutely order again! Very happy!!!

Love, love, love these pearls they are perfect for that layered look I was going for. One small comment, they are heavy because of the large size pearls. But they make the right statement, these are no old lady pearls, this is a very hip look!

I purchased these pearls for my daughter as a Christmas gift and they are perfect, just as advertised. The only drawback is how heavy they are. If I would have known, I would have purchased smaller pearls. Otherwise, they are beautiful.
