The pearls are a beautiful color, they are a great size, and the workmanship is great; however, I received an 18 inch necklace not a 16 inch necklace. I also ordered this necklace in black and I did receive a 16 inch length; however, the pearls were quite a bit smaller. I am probably going to return this necklace but I shouldn't have to pay for re-stocking fees when I clearly did not receive the correct product. I might also add that the packing slip and label on the pouch clearly show 16 inches. For anyone who specifically wants a 16 inch necklace, all I have to say is buyer beware.
