I bought one in white for my 16 year old niece and she loved it. It is very pretty and I liked the way the strands are woven in a braid. The pearls are irregular in shape but I think it adds to the character of the piece. I bought the grey pearl necklace for a friends 40th birthday and she loved it as well. This necklace is a nice piece for the price. I'm thinking about getting myself one next!
