This was my first purchase online through overstock.com, This is also my first purchase of a pearl necklace. I wanted the 24 inch necklace and their was not a wide selection for this length.The pearls are not exactly the same sizes but its not obvious, only if you look at them one by one. the color is beautiful and there is not alot of imperfections or any blemishes. My only concern is that the clasp is very dainty, but for a 24 inch I can easily take it off w/o using the clasp. Overall it is a great buy for the cost, I looked at a 24 inch freshwater pearl necklace at the mall and it was 4x as much. Thank you overstock!
