The presentation box is different than the picture. The pearls are very odd shaped, but the color and sheen is very nice. I had ordered another set on Overstock, a 2 piece set with 18' necklace, and earrings with 8-9mm pearls. That set was very, very nice! Wish I would have ordered another of those! These aren't bad just not as good as the others. My recommendation is get the other set. I'll be returning these!
