I bought this necklace for my mom for Christmas and it just arrived today. I will be sooo happy to see her open these!! Of course they are not the same quality as a $500 strand of pearls would have been, but they are great for the price and I am happy to give as a special present for my mom:) I was happy to see that they are knotted between each pearl--that's a real value if you happen to get it caught on something and the strand breaks. These seem very well constructed with a nice clasp too.
