I love pearls and was looking for a new pearl necklace. I wanted something more dramatic, and for the price and the appearance on the picture I thought I had a good find. Shipping was quick, no complaining there. But after inspection of the necklace I noticed how cheap the clasp was. I would expect a clasp on a pearl necklace like this to be made out of silver or gold, but instead it was made out of a flimsy, cheap metal. I only got to wear the necklace for a couple of days until I tried taking it off one night and the clasp broke off the necklace and the pearls are not individually knotted. Now I will have to take it to a jeweler, replace the cheap clasp, and get the pearls individually tied. This will probably cost me way more then what I paid for. It is more than a little disappointing.
