So after looking around in local stores for cultured pearls of a decent size I found these pearls. I was hesitant ,as the only pearls I could find for an equivalent price were tiny or very misshapen. I ordered anyways and boy was I glad I did. Only one was noticeably misshapen, the rest looked just as round as the ones going for hundreds of dollars. That one was still hardly noticeable and near the clasp. My girlfriend had wanted a pair of cultured pearls to be able to wear with outfits without having to wear her pearls she inherited. She was very happy with my gift.
