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.

I have purchased almost a dozen pearl necklaces from Overstock for the ladies in my family and was satisfied with my purchases. This was my first one from this brand name and it will be my last. Poor pearl quality & craftsmanship, There was no care in sizing the pearls when being tied together because a small one would be next to a larger one, several were not drilled in the center, and this too was very visible.

Please tell us about the quality of the product. Poor: Not one pearl was close to being round. several were not drilled in the center and it was very visible.
For the price, these pearls are truly amazing. I thought that the quality would be pretty low since the 18' strand is less that $35. This is the least expensive pearl necklace I own, but it is actually probably one of the best (besides the one that is over a thousand). It is a very heavy necklace, and the only negative thing about it is the shape is off-round, but that is in the description. Also, it isn't extremely off-round, and someone who doesn't know pearls well would probably never know that. Great luster, and it only took a few hours of wearing for it to hang properly. I am still shocked that I managed to find pearls of this size and luster at such a low price. I am strongly considering buying many more to give as gifts.

I love pearls and I think that every girl and woman should have a set. I purchased pearls for my girls when they were young ladies and they looked adorable and as women, elegant. I needed this size and now my pearl collection is complete - maybe.
