Since there were no other reviews of this necklace (I think I'm the first to write a review), I was apprehensive to buy the necklace. Plus, the pictures of this necklace didn't look that great. BUT, I am very pleased with this purchase. The pearl necklace is the perfect length (16 inches) - I always wanted one that fit nicely around the neck and that wasn't too long. The pearl size is consistent throughout, the luster is nice, and the pearls are a nice white color. The size of the pearls are also not too big, but not too small either. This is a great classic necklace. I recommend this buy!
