I have to say that I was very disappointed in my pearls. The picture showed varied shapes and hues of brown. All of the pearls were uniform in shape and totally the same colors. They do not look real at all. I also was misled by one of the reviews that stated that the spacer beads were gold...not true, they are silver colored. I wear no silver and never would have ordered them is I had known that. I even thought they looked silver in the picture, so I was depending on that review to be true. I have ordered many times from Overstock and always gotten great things: fabulous orental rug, corner entertainment center for my husband. But I had never before ordered jewelry. And I don't think I ever will order jewelry again. Very disappointed.

Thank you for writing this review for the brown freshwater pearl earrings and necklace set (7-8 mm). After researching your complaint, we found that the picture was incorrect. We have since added a new picture that correctly depicts the product.
Arrived, is beautiful, and worth the money.... BUT.... Be careful with the necklace, I have worn the set only once because the necklace was caught on my long hair, and when I pulled my hair out, the necklace broke and scattered the pearls all over my office. I'm still collecting missing pearls. The earrings are still wearable, but I will need to pay someone to string the pearls back together. They are not knotted so if the string breaks, you'll have great difficulty locating all the pearls. It did not take much for the necklace to break. So for the price, it is worth it, for the possibility of the necklace breaking, just be very careful with it and it should be ok.
I ordered this necklace for my mom and I am sure she is going to love it. The pearls are of medium size and got a natural shine. I like the small golden beads between them, they make the necklace even more precious. It is long enough to wear it in 2-3 rounds and can go with casuals as well as formals. But, the earrings are way too small. It looks really tiny with the necklace. I would preferably get something bigger for the ears. Overall, its a nice buy!
more beautiful than the picture! the pearls look like rich shiny seeds. each one is a different shade of brown and they glow beautifully. the size of the necklace is generous enough that you do not have to struggle to triple it around your neck.
These pearls, while nice looking, were a very big dissapointment.One of the earrings broke the first time I put it on - I got to work and no pearl...The necklace broke after the third time.Overstock has been great and gave me a refund.I was still sad though, because I liked them and they were a gift.
I bought these brown freshwater pearls as a gift and she hasn't received them yet. I was a little surprised that they weren't shipped in nicer packaging. They came in a plastic ziplock bag inside a bubble wrap bag. They look very pretty on.....I did try them on myself just to see how they looked. I would consider buying it for myself.
I ordered this for my mom to wear with her gown for my wedding day. She had a bronze gown and this set looked fantastic with it. We both obviously didn't read the fine print well enough as this is actually a long chain, but that gives more versatility anyway. She loved this set and it looked great on.
I ordered this as a Christmas present for my mother-in-law...so I will let you know what she thinks, that is if I don't keep them for myself. I love this necklace/earing set. It is very pretty and can be worn with a variety of outfits. I am thinking of purchasing a second set for myself!!
Pearls were purchased as gift for my sister. Arrived on time and after seeing the product I wanted to keep them for myself. The only thing I had to do was find a nice gift box to put them in. Pearls come in standard Overstock red pouch. Wanted to give gift more of a presentation. My sister loved these pearls and since brown is her favorite color wears them often. This is a great buy.
Long day, nail polish chipped, overworked, underappreciated, dishes in the sink....BUT saw this set, took a chance and LOVED IT.Perfect little pick me up.....save a month of your latte money or brown bag it for a bit and get this necklace/earring set! Great price, prettier in person, sturdy, great quality of freshwater pearls! New fan of overstock jewelry!
My husband and I ordered this for his mom for mothers day. We still have not seen it in person since she lives in a different state. But, she was so ecstatic and said it's absolutely beautiful. She said it was perfect and looked rich. I can't wait to see it in person. I just may order one for myself.
