I wore my pearls yesterday for the first time and they are perfect. They are beautiful, the perfect length, great size and color. I am completely happy with this purchase. The clasp took me a few tries to figure out but it is for safety. My husband gave them to me for our 29th wedding anniversary. He first purchased a digital picture frame and said he thought about pearls but didn't think I liked jewelry. PEARLS what girl doesn't want pearls. Well, you know the end of the story - picture frame returned, pearls bought.
