Make no mistake about it, these are beautiful pearls. I opted for the 24" length and the size of the pearls is uniform, although the shape is not as round as shown in the photos, at least not on my strand. Also, the photos depict these pearls as being stark white, not showing the lovely orient that they have, which adds hues of pink and cream to the lustre, and dimension that leaves no doubt they are real. Some of the pearls have small surface imperfections, but they can't be seen unless you are inspecting the necklace. These are very tasteful ladylike pearls, about the same size as standard Akoya, with a similar orient and lustre. The strand hangs straight when worn and the stringing/knotting is well done and secure, including the sterling silver fish hook clasp. I do not agree with the AAA grading because of the off round shape and surface imperfections (AAA means round and at least 95% of the surface of each pearl is completely blemish free), but I would feel comfortable with AA. These pearls remain a good value.

Other reviews helped me to pick this strand of pearls. This piece will be in my wardrobe for a long time. This would be a beautiful gift for any woman. I was impressed with the quality, luster and color.

The pearls are lovely...BUT the first time I attempted to put them on, the jump ring for the clasp opened and broke. The gage of the rings and clasp are not substantial for the necklace. Had to have them replaced by a jeweler. So consider an extra cost if you decide to purchase. I am so glad I did not buy these for a gift....that would have been embarrassing.

I recently bought 8 strands of these as gifts for my bridesmaids. I really wanted to give them pearl necklaces but never thought I'd be able to afford it. Since I bought 8 strands, I can attest to the fact that the overall quality of the pearls depends a little bit on the luck-of-the-draw. I would say 7 of the 8 that I ordered are absolutely gorgeous and you'd never believe they were only $35. Very very pleased. They have a nice heavy weight, are individually tied, and the luster of the pearls is truly beautiful. The shapes are not perfectly matched but they are "off-round" and honestly they aren't that differently shaped unless you look pretty closely. I wore a strand for a day because they were so beautiful! One of the pairs, a few of the pearls are a tiny bit scratched. And that is probably because of the way they are packaged (loose in a satin bag or loose in a cardboard box). I am keeping them anyway, because they're still pretty and I don't think most people would really notice. Overall I'd highly recommend these pearls for the price!
