I am glad that I bought these for my girlfriend. She loves them, and wears them all the time, both to work, and out on the town. She loves the way they go with many different outfits, and are always a classy accessory. However, they are not the highest quality pearls. Many of the pearls have small (as in you really have to know what to look for, and be looking at them a nose away from your face) blemishes and imperfections on them. This is not a huge deal if the person you are buying them for has never bought really expensive pearls before. I only know because my father has bought really expensive pearls for my mother, and they were flawless. A tip- to let her know how great these pearls are, and how smart you are, tell her that the way you can tell real pearls from fake ones is to rub the pearl against the front of a tooth. Real pearls are rough against your enamel- fakes are smooth.
