If you are looking for a classically-styled pearl necklace, if you want the "Jackie Onassis / Queen of England" look, or simply believe that a lady always wears pearls, then THIS IS THE NECKLACE!
This is the first classic "string of pearls' necklace that I have purchased, although I do have other necklaces that incorporate pearls into their design. They are strung very well, and are individually knotted onto the string. As other have noted, the clasp IS inexpensive, and made of very thin sterling silver in the old-fashioned design with a hook that slides into the clasp to secure.
I was surprised at the weight of the necklace when I lifted it from the box! But I don't notice it when wearing the necklace. I ordered the 18' length, and it sit's just below the hollow of my throat--exactly what I wanted. The inexpensive hook clasp seems actually very secure (but I am careful not to bend it).
The pearls are slightly graduated along the string; I noticed that it stayed in place as I wore it, and the clasp remained at the back of my neck. Although pearls have a slight blush color that is noticeable when in their box, they appear white when I wear them. (I am fair-skinned, with silver hair and and blue eyes.) I actually like the warmth of their color.
Also, be aware that the pearls are not spherical--they are more oblong. However, they are strung in such a way that they appear more round, especially when the necklace is worn on the neck. (The hole has been drilled through the small diameter of the pearl.)
I am exceptionally pleased with my purchase. It looks great when worn, and looks much more expensive that it actually is. This version, with a sterling silver clasp, was quite inexpensive.. I purchased it one to check out the quality of the pearls, before purchasing the more expensive versions. (Longer, gold clasp, etc...) I am now considering one of these as gift to my daughter-in-law. ...and, maybe, another for myself!
How did the image on site compare with the actual product? The image was very close to the actual product in construction: freshwater pearls, individually knotted between each pearl, classic old-fashioned (lightweight) sterling silver clasp that "hooks" and then slides into the clasp to "catch" and secure.
How accurate was the sizing? seems very accurate: I ordered an 18-inch length, and that's what was delivered.
Please tell us about the quality of the product. The pearls are appeared to have a faint blush hue to the "white" color when I first saw them in the opened box. They look "white"' when I wear them, though.
Very, very nice pearl neckless. It's true the pearls are somewhat off round, however, I do not feel that it takes away from the beauty of the neckless at all. You only notice the off roundness if you are examining it up close. When it is on and you look in the mirror, it just looks really rich. I was looking for a nice pearl neckless that I could wear as nice dress or casual for a good price- this neckless is exactly what I was looking for. It looks very rich and beautiful and I am very pleased with the quality and the price!

How accurate was the sizing? very accurate
Please tell us about the quality of the product. very nice quality
Off round pearls are supposed to be round to the eye, these are not even close, not even from far away. They are more egg shaped than anything. And they look like they have grooves carved into them. There are nicks and scratches. Just not good. The clasp I got on mine wasn't sterling silver even, it's a gold color. Maybe I got the wrong strand but these are going back. The only thing that was good was the luster and color.
How did the image on site compare with the actual product? Nothing like it
How accurate was the sizing? Didn't check
Please tell us about the quality of the product. Not good
This pearl necklace is the first of many more I plan to purchase through Overstock.com. A 16 inch pearl necklace is a must have for every girl's collection. This necklace is lovely; very lustrous, a natural beauty. The clasp makes it easy for me to put it on and take off by myself, which is very important. It is hand knotted between each pearl, which brings peace of mind when wearing it while holding a small child!
These are very beautiful freshwater pearls, yes you can find very small defects on most freshwater pearls, but as a jeweler, these are an amazing value. They are beautifully strung and sit very well around the neck, I couldn't believe how nice they were. They do appear round when wearing and are as elegant as a much more expensive strand. Highly recommended.
My mother-in-law wanted a choker-length pearl necklace for her 100th birthday! After much searching, I found this 16 inch necklace. When it arrived, I was thrilled with the quality. The pearls are very consistent in size and shape. The color is white (not pinkish) and lustrous. She has not had a problem with the clasp. All in all, these pearls are lovely and a great bargain.
This was to be an 18th birthday gift for my niece, but I'm sending these pearls back. Size and shape of the pearls is not consistent--they are small pearls next to larger ones throughout the strand (and this is not like graduated pearls). I have purchased other strands on pearls from Overstock.com, and they were beautiful, so this purchase was very disappointing.
