These pearls are absolutely GORGEOUS! For the price, I really don't think you can beat them. They were larger pearls than I expected, and although some are not perfectly round, they are strung toward the back. Amazing value, for elegant everyday pearls!
Many of the pearls are not even round, some I would consider a potato shape or rock shape, not anywhere close to the picture shown. I returned it and still wating for my refund.

For a freshwater cultured pearls this necklace is just perfect!! I got them all identically round shaped. The color is the same. And they were heavy in weight, which means that they were not fake." Also, because freshwater pearls are solid nacre, they are also quite durable, resisting chipping, wear, and degeneration." *********************

I got this necklace for Christmas, and I love it. I wear it everywhere (looks like I'll need to get variations so I don't wear this one to death). The only thing I don't love is the clasp -- it's a little too tricky for the short length. These pearls are beautiful (beautiful color, but not exactly round in shape), but then again, I'm not a pearl snob.
Pearls were nice, but I wouldn’t have bought them if I had seen them in person. The size of the pearls was great, pretty large compared to some other strands I’ve seen. The color was nice and they seemed well constructed and sturdy. The only major issue was the shape of the pearls. They were definitely all “button shaped” instead of rounded. This isn’t noticeable at first glance but holding them you definitely notice they are strangely shaped. I understand that this is characteristic of freshwater pearls, but these are less round than one would expect. The gold clasp also uses an interesting mechanism that may stop working after a while, but only time will tell. Also, the packaging and presentation was suspect- no tags or even a label, just a strand of pearls in a mesh bag. My girlfriend was very pleased and wears them daily so for the money it was a great gift, but I was expecting something closer to jewelry store quality. Incidentally, my local ***** store has a strand the same length for $***** that were all perfectly round, but smaller in size with a sturdy fish-hook clasp that I would have purchased looking back.
The pearl necklace is more than i expected. It arrives in a week and it is sooo beautiful. Perfect size if you like it shows more. Very shining and luxurious. I can wear it formal or casual. I like it so much, I ordered another one for my mother. Overstock. com is a wonderful place to shop......
Very nice strand of pearls - I purchased for my daughter,s 30th birthday. The pearls are not exactly round, but when worn it is not noticable. The size and weight are excellent the lusture is beautiful and the pearls and are well strung. For the price it is a great purchase!
I am planning to give these to my Mom for Mother's Day and these arrived very quickly, with plenty of time before the holiday. These have a very nice luster and size and virtually no blemishes. The only thing is that most are not round, but that's what you expect of freshwater. It's not that significant if you're far away.
This necklace gets four stars because it is a little shorter than 18" and clasp is ok but not great. Freshwater pearls are not perfectly round and these are no exception, but it's hard to tell once the necklace is on. There are a few imperfections and scratches, but most of the pearls are in good condition. The size is great and I am happy with my purchase. I will be wearing this necklace a lot.
