These pearls arrived and were just as described and pictured. They were purchased as a gift and I am always just a little skeptical when ordering things I can't actually see and touch. But they were just as pictured and just lovely. Individually knotted, very nicely matched, perfect size. I shall be ordering more for gifts as nieces graduate, etc.
This is a fun set and a nice slightly cream color, but with other colors in the overtones.although not perfect or perfectly round, the have a nice sheen. I also like that I don't have to be uber worried about doubling or tripling these and scratches down the road because of the lower cost. Lower worry factor. If you want shiny, but not surface perfection, get these. You can't really see the imperfections when worn...and remember a mollusk made it. How perfect can it get? Overall happy.
We are delighted with the pearls. They are the perfect size and hang beautifully. All claims in reviews and DaVonna's product description are true. In addition, we are so very pleased with Overstock as a company. They went above and beyond in helping us resolve a problem when I made a careless mistake in the recipient's address.
I had my eye on a similar 100" pearl strand at a department store. Even on sale it was more than twice the price. I went to take a look at it and it was hideous; the pearls were all misshaped & discolored, plus it wasn't knotted at all. After shopping around I came across this necklace on Overstock and figured I didn't have much to lose I could always return it. It is beautiful! Obviously the pearls aren't all perfectly round but you can't tell just by looking at someone wearing it and they are much better quality than anything I saw at the department stores.
These are very nice, especially for how little you pay for a 100" pearl necklace. They are definitely nicer than I expected for what I paid. The length is great because it allows you to play with varying styles. The size is nice, not too big and not too small. The coloring is more on the creamy (more yellow cast than off white) side - don't expect white. I am very pleased with this purchase and would recommend this necklace to anyone.
I bought these in the 80 inch for a Christmas gift and I was blown away by the quality. I came back to order a shorter strand in the larger pearl size from the same brand for myself. The super long 80 to 100 inch strands are trendy right now. These compare pretty well to an 18" strand of Akoyas that I've had for 20 years. They aren't perfect but they are definitely round with a really nice luster. You won't be disappointed.
My wife is like crazy with it . She can"t believe the size .
