These pearls are unbelievable for the price. They came in a little cloth bag with a big "O" on them. I switched them over to a pretty jewelry gift box and this was an eye-popping gift! The recipient of this gift put them on right away and didn't want to take them off. They come with a high-quality gold safety clasp. My husband, who really knows pearls, said they were not as nice as salt water pearls but the knotting and consistent size and color were indications of high quality.
