The pearls were OK. Good for small special occassion functions and dressing up for fun. The strand that I got has the imperfect pearl right in the middle of the necklace in the front. The inner strand could be one pearl shorter to create a better look. These were supposed to be AAA pearls....I am not convinced. The price was very good. Overall, because of the good price and the functionality of the pearls, they are acceptable and I didn't return them.
