Let me first say that I am an avid buyer of pearls - all of my friends know that I LOVE pearls and make sure to comment on any new pieces that they see me wearing. When this necklace came, I wasn't "wowed" when it came out of the box. I also noticed that none of my friends gave me any compliments on the piece (although I did not receive any negative comments, either.) MAJOR FLAW: The clasp broke within a couple of months of occasional wear. Not only is the very unusual clasp tricky to begin with (DO NOT buy this necklace if you have arthritis or any other troubles with your hands), but the metal is flimsy and the thin piece of wire that secures the clasp broke easily (i.e. I definitely did not wear this necklace while rock-climbing or something.) However, I CAN still wear the necklace. I just need to check every half an hour or so to make sure it is still on my neck. Additionally, the luster of the pearl is rather dull. I was very disappointed by this. Even to the untrained eye, the pearls look fake. Nonetheless, the necklace fulfilled the purpose I had in buying it. It was a nice length: a bit longer than your average pearl necklace. And the pearl width was slightly larger than "regular" pearl width. It goes well with turtlenecks and the like. I am a senior college student and it suits my age group well, in terms of young women who dress more on the mature and conservative side. I would not recommend it to any females younger than the upperclassmen college age range. However, I believe it is suitable for any older age ranges. It's both classic and modern, and it fits perfectly between an "average" pearl width and the more trendy large, bauble-like pearls that younger women have been wearing lately. But unless the price is chump change as far as you're concerned, don't bother with this necklace. I have received MAJOR compliments from many other Overstock.com pearl purchases, such as the 16" freshwater pearl necklace. Buy that instead - it will become a wardrobe staple!!!
These pearls are not flawless, but for the price, they're very good. The size and color are pretty closely matched on all of them, and for daily wear, I'm thrilled with them. There are some small flaws, and some of the irregular shaping you expect with freshwater pearls, but they are much nicer than I expected for the price.
I knew for the price that I would not be getting pearls that would knock my socks off, and I was right. I was *very* curious to see what the strand would look like: length, lustre, match, size, blemishes, etc. The strand is 18" including clasp, pearls are off-round, some with more nacre than others, decently matched & sized, each blemished. They are definitely not AAA grade (which is an arbitrarily assigned grade by whoever, unless they are Mikimoto pearls.) But I am keeping it because they are nice for the price. For pearls in the 8-9 mm size, you would have to pay at the very least 20X more to get a decent strand, and that is a conservative estimate.
I was a bit worried about the length of the necklace, I'm petite and didn't want it to be too long. It fits nicely and the length is just right. I love the website and this product and it's why I'm giving it a 5 star review.
Got this as a gift and the recipient loved it. Said the length was perfect, not too long or short. Pearls looked great. The clasp was a little different, but it only took her a few minutes to figure out and she feels this style clasp is more secure. Overall great product, very happy.
These pearls were given as a graduation gift. The recipient was very happy with them as was I. They are individually knotted which adds a touch of class to the product. The sterling silver pearl was a nice addition. Lovely strand of pearls.
How did the image on site compare with the actual product? The pearls actually looked bigger compared with the actual product
I bought this necklace as part of my girlfriend's Valentine's Day gift this year.
The necklace was exactly as described. The pearls were of nearly identical size, and the shapes were matched very well. The only pearls on the strand that were of noticeably different size and/or shape were placed nearest the clasp, but again, they were not so different as to look out of place. The lustre was uniform and very nice, and although you can see a few blemishes here and there on very close inspection, when worn all that is seen is a beautiful strand of pearls on a beautiful woman. (Oh wait...that's what I saw, anyway!)
Great description, great quality, great price, and great deal. I am completely satisfied with this purchase, and would happily consider Overstock for any other jewelry purchases, especially pearls!
