The luster looks the same as the picture. I was pleased when I received these! I have been searching for twisted pearls for a while now and these are perfect! They don't quite match the brown in the 10-set pearl earrings (the set is a lighter brown), so I have settled with wearing the necklace with gold studs and a gold bracelet.
They are pretty from a distance and a nice design and size. The pearls are imperfect which I absolutely expected, I like imperfections frankly, but the color coating is dull, not nearly as rich as the photo suggests, and the coating is already chipping slightly where they are banging together at the knots. The necklace is well constructed as well as the clasp. While I don't think they're quite fancy enough for an evening gown, they are super cute to dress up office wear. I will be handling them with care as I don't want to encourage further chipping of the color. Were the color and finish as luminous as the photo I would have been thrilled with this purchase and considered it the bargain of a lifetime. As it is, I find it appropriate for the price.
- How did the image on site compare with the actual product? Accurate in terms of design and size, pearls not nearly as lustrous or rich in color as photo implies though
- How accurate was the sizing? accurate
- Please tell us about the quality of the product. You get what you pay for
Beautiful pearl necklace. Can be worn dressy or with jeans and a tee. I like that they can be worn hanging in 3 graduated strands or twisted for more of a choker look. Short of a minor issue with the clasp described in my other remarks, I am very pleased with this purchase.
- Did the image onsite match the product? Yes, the pearls were as described.
- Did the product fit true to size? Yes. These pearls can be worn hanging in 3 strands or twisted which shortens the length a bit.
- How is the quality of the product? Overall very good. The only compaint I have is the clasp. The pearls are strung all the way up to and meet the clasp which makes it a little difficult to get them fastened.
