A sophisticated and timeless string of freshwater pearls turns an ordinary outfit into an extraordinary ensemble. White freshwater pearl necklaces like this string of rounded pearls with ball-shaped box clasp are the perfect addition to any wardrobe....more
I received this pearl necklace 5 days after placing my order. There wasn't the promised gift box; it came in a polyester pouch. Before purchasing, I asked Overdocks if the necklace comes with a certificate of their AAA grate, and the answer is yes (see Q and A section associated with this product). However, there isn't any certificate in the package I received; the description enclosed in the package does not mention the grade at all. The reason is simple: they are not AAA, the highest grade for freshwater cultured pearls. Every pearl in this necklace is blemished, either long cut or spots. The long cut can be regarded as a pattern and someone might appreciate this style, but the spots are unquestionable blemishes. Heavy blemishes do not belong to AAA pearls. Am I having an unrealistic expectation for peals of this size at this price? Yes, I am, but how did I get this unrealistic expectation? The photo and grade that overstocs puts there. I expected to get something looks like the photo and the corresponds with the description, but what I received is nothing close. Exaggerated ad is everywhere, but this one is borderline false advertisement.
To be fair, the pearls of this necklace are round (not off round) and huge. They are so huge that they almost look fake if not because of the blemishes (what an irony), and they have good luster. In addition the necklace is cheaper than those with smaller-size pearls at overstocks. This necklace looks fine as long as it is held at a distance. But I cannot not give it to my Mom as the Mother's day gift as I planned. My mother will examine her gift closely. I am still debating whether or not I should return it.

Finally decided to order these. So let down. Size was awesome, well matched. Nice clasp. Fast shipping. However, they looked like they were dropped in a garbage disposal. Should have been half the price or not for sale at all. Save your money for some pearls with a higher rating. Will be returning no question.
I recently was in Greece and was intrigued by the Austrailian version of these pearls. the price scared me off however. I was quoted *** for the same looking necklace. Now I'm not professional, but for my occasional use they are absolutely perfect. Heavy and strong, nice clasp. I would recommend highly
They look OK if you don't look too closely. A couple issues: some pearls are not round, and many are sratched.
They are good size, though. And look nice. But if you are going to examining them, there are many many imperfections.
So, somone lookin very closely will know they are not thousands dollars pearls.
Clasp would not stay connected. After trying a few times to make it work, the clasp broke. Quality of clasp was poor and lightweight. Pearls were heavy - can't imagine why they chose such a flimsy clasp for such nice and rather heavy pearls.

Does it come with a certification of AA grade? The price is way lower than pearl strands with pearls of smaller sizes from the same company. I thus wonder if grade AA is a typo.qazw on Mar 30, 2012Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
