Pearls are very classic, but sometimes us younger girls, feel a little too young to wear a string of pearls. I felt like I was wearing my mother's or grandmother's jewelry. This is a very subtle necklace that can be worn dressy casual or evening wear. HIGHLY RECOMMEND. I get a lot of compliments on it and how unusual it is.

I have bought this necklace from overstock three times. I LOVED the pink one and wore it very frequently. It matched a number of outfits I have and I have always been very careful with it. I reviewed it upon the first purchase (one of the older reviews, anonymous from Northern VA) and that one broke on day one. I actually ended up buying it in white for my wedding and made sure not to wear it until the day of. It was exactly what I wanted. Unfortunately, during the honeymoon that one broke as well (strand pulled out of attachment). A year and a half later I found that the pink necklace was available again and since I have never found one I liked as much, I repurchased it. I wore it for a while, got lots of compliments, and, of course, the strands pulled out. I have both the white and the pink waiting to go to a jeweler for a more permanent attachment method as I simply cannot keep buying it, but like it so much that I refuse to give it up!!!
I bought this necklace with a few other pieces on a whim, and it is a pretty necklace with good value. I am a big fan of pearls, and I really like this necklace. While I wish it had a few more layers, I still enjoy wearing it, and it's a nice professional piece that is a little more dressed down and fun than my traditional strands of pearls.
I bought one in white for my 16 year old niece and she loved it. It is very pretty and I liked the way the strands are woven in a braid. The pearls are irregular in shape but I think it adds to the character of the piece. I bought the grey pearl necklace for a friends 40th birthday and she loved it as well. This necklace is a nice piece for the price. I'm thinking about getting myself one next!
I think these necklaces are beautiful and I am so glad I came across them on Overstock! Trying to save money for a wedding is hard enough but then to look at all the prices out there, it is just plain ridiculous. Luckily Overstock had exactly what I was looking for at a price I could afford. I only wish they had come in individual boxes instead of these plastic baggies. Oh well, c'est la vie. Each one is unique within its details. I love them.
I liked the necklace quite a bit but was very disappointed that it broke just a few weeks after I began wearing it. As several other reviewers noted, it's very delicate -- too much so, I'm afraid; the strands pulled out where they meet (or, rather, used to meet) the clasp at the end. I contacted O-stock about the problem (which several other reviewers mention in both the US and Mexico versions of the product) and they kindly agreed to accept return even tho it's after the 30 days. (I'll also note that there is a surprising range for the "list price" of this item - the one made in US says it has a list of $54 versus $37.50 for the one made in Mexico.) Bottom line - nice but don't purchase if you're looking for durability.
I admit the necklaces I received are pretty, and very delicate. A thin wire is used, and I'm afraid it'll break easy. The necklace could probably stand to be longer as well. However, it is really pretty when you put it on. I'd recommend this to friends.
