I bought this set for the blue gray pearls rather than the white as I seldom wear white pearls so my review is restricted to to the blue gray pair. The color is pretty close to the picture and very attractive with a nice blue tint that I had not seen before. I really like them. Only reason I did not give them 5 stars is that backings are tiny but also a little loose so that earings slip a bit. You can just put on a different backing, of course, but these posts are apparently pretty thick as all my backings are too small for this pair. But they are definitely still wearable with original backings and definitely worth the money, especially if you might also use the white pearls.
