Not even close to AAA
 from New York, NY,  May 17, 2012

First, I am not an expert, but did a bit of research on grading and then had the strand appraised by my jeweler. These are NOT AAA. Color was white with slight rose tint and well matched. Sizes were over 8 although one was slightly under 8. Knotting was not uniform throughout the strand, there were areas where the spacing was a little wider than other areas. Many, many imperfections such as pimples and inclusions. There were many areas where you could see the seed. My jeweler initially thought they were about an "A" rating...then after a closer look with a loupe, said they were less than "A". We compared a real AA rated strand and it was like night and day. Jeweler thought these could be a cheap chinese grown Akoya. However, he did appraise them for $1400. I ended up giving the strand as a gift. Just know what you are getting...sub"A" pearls. Nice from 3+ feet away. The AAA description is misleading.

Great Necklace
 Feb 20, 2011

I ordered one necklace and then ordered two more. I had them restrung with mystery clasps so I can mix and match dozens of ways. ( One 18", one 17" and two 8".) The pearls are rose shaded (which I agree wasn't stated). They looked pink out of the box, but looked white when I put them on., against white, black or my skin. The luster and size are fabulous. Very, very few blemishes. The jeweler who did the stringing was very impressed. I compared these to others at the jewelers and they were equally as beautiful- and larger. I would buy these again in a minute.

Beautiful Strand
 from Naples, Fl,  Feb 17, 2011

The necklace I received was high luster, 8.2-8.5mm and well matched with only minor blemishes. The color of these pearls is rose. As I learned, white pearls come in three shades, silver, pink or rose and cream; I would have liked to have known this ahead of time! I purchased these pearls as a gift. They did not come with a certificate of authenticity so I had them appraised. The appraisal was significantly more than I paid but I would have appreciated some sort of certificate from Overstock.
