Overstock.com is my "go-to" place for affordable, good quality pearls. This necklace is no exception. It is made of freshwater pearls so not all are perfectly round, but its not very noticeable...mostly just the smaller ones at the clasp are slightly oval. I was worried about the quality of the clasp based on other reviews but I think its fine. It would be nice to have a picture of it. Overall, I think this necklace is very cute, very "Jackie-O," and very affordable.
This necklace is ok. The pearls are of reasonable quality for the price, though as others note, they are not individually knotted. My biggest issue is that its much shorter than pictured on me, more like choker length. This extremely short length will make it less versatile for me.
I purchased these pearls to wear to a Holiday Party. They broke while trying to put them on; never got a chance to wear them. They were pretty but of VERY POOR QUALITY. They appeared to be strung on sewing thread and only the first two were knotted. So when they broke, they spilled all over the floor. I returned them for a full refund, waiting for refund confirmation from my credit card co. Also, the clasp is VERY flimsy; save your money and your time.....don't buy this item.
Though not individually tied, these pearls are real. I brought the necklace to a jeweler who told me they are indeed real and worth much more than I paid for them. They sit together beautifully on the neck. The graduation just makes them stand out a little bit more than if they were all the same size. I bought these to wear for my wedding and could not be happier!
It mades me feel like "Jackie O". I get many compliments on this piece and am proud to wear it.

I received this necklace in 3 days of ordering and it is BEAUTIFUL!! A definate MUST for your jewelry wardrobe. It is elegant and sophistocated, pearls are well sized and strung. The luster is nice and it hangs on the neck beautifully!! I ordered the 16". EXCELLENT!!
I bought this necklace for my wedding. It looked just like it did in the picture and worked well with my dress. It really tied the whole look together in an elegant way. The only negative side to the necklace was the clasp. It is rather flimsy and can slip out with a lot of dancing.
I have quite a collection of pearls, and no these are not hand knotted mikimoto, but for this price, they are incredible. Lustre is great, very bright, and sits perfectly on the neck. The clasp is a little complex, but you won't loose them. Under $100 for three beautiful strands? Do it!!
Although I saw some bad comment on this item, I personally think it is very good deal for this price! The clasp could be better, but can't complain.... It is way better than I thought it would be..... I am so happy wearing this. It gives you more elegance and sophistication.
My Fiance ordered these for me for our upcoming wedding! I love them. I have seen similar pearls on other sites for twice the price. The only thing I dont really care for is the clasp. It is sterling silver and a little flimsy, but other then that I think they are great for the price!
I love pearls and was looking for a new pearl necklace. I wanted something more dramatic, and for the price and the appearance on the picture I thought I had a good find. Shipping was quick, no complaining there. But after inspection of the necklace I noticed how cheap the clasp was. I would expect a clasp on a pearl necklace like this to be made out of silver or gold, but instead it was made out of a flimsy, cheap metal. I only got to wear the necklace for a couple of days until I tried taking it off one night and the clasp broke off the necklace and the pearls are not individually knotted. Now I will have to take it to a jeweler, replace the cheap clasp, and get the pearls individually tied. This will probably cost me way more then what I paid for. It is more than a little disappointing.
The necklace was an anniversary gift for my wife. Admittedly, she has more discerning eyes than I do when it comes to jewelery. Her critique was moderately extensive, e.g., pearls were not individually tied, suspicious that the pearls were not real, etc.
These were a birthday present for my daughter, she loves pearls. I'm very pleased with the luster, quality, and size of the pearls. My only concern is that they aren't knotted between each pearl, but for what I paid for these beautiful pearls, guess I can't complain. I've bought other pearls from "O" in the past and have always been very pleased with the quality. Thank you for making these quality pieces available to us at such great prices.
