I would like to give an honest review here. When I'm still deciding if I will buy this necklace, I first read all of the reviews. This pearl necklace looks good overall esp. if you are looking on it at a distance of 1 foot or greater. The color is nice and it sparkles. But if you will look at it very closely some of the beads are not perfectly round. There are dents here and there. Overall if you are not a very meticulous person, you will be satisfied with your purchase. But if you want something which is perfect or the beads are carefully selected then you will be disappointed. I decided to keep mine. It is just right for the price.
