These have beautiful lustre. They're heavy. THey're definitely real. If you're looking for roundness, don't buy freshwater. By their nature, they're baroque, and these are. For freshwater, they're a great deal. Maybe not best gift for someone with several other cultured pearl pieces. Excellent for a "first-pearl" gift. I can't wait for my 16 year old to open them this Xmas!
