This necklace was my 1st purchase from Overstock. I was pleased. The pearls are the traditional size you see everywhere which was fine and the luster was very nice. I like the combination of colors and the way they flow. Someone thought about this when they put it together. The previous reviews did help me decide so I appreciate those of you who respond. I would recommend this if you are looking for something a little different. The pearls are fairly round, which for freshwater isn't always the case. Thanks Overstock, I'll continue to shop here.
