    • I love wearing these
      Verified Purchase

      I was nervous about ordering pearls online, but the price was good, so I decided to take a chance on them. There was a small bit of glue on one of the pearls, at least that's what it seemedmlije. I took them to a jeweler, and he just scraped it off with his fingernail. They are now perfect, and I know they would have cost much more elsewhere

      The pearls nearest the clasp were smaller than the 8.00 size advertised. Overall a very nice necklace. Drapes well.

      I had high hope for this necklace because of all the good reviews. But it is really a big disappointment. No way these pearls are grade AA. There are noticeable flaws in every one of them. I am returning it for sure.

    • I felt compelled to respond to the prior reviewer who apparently received a sub-standard strand of pearls. I have now ordered 3 (yes 3) of these strands and they have all been excellent (close to blemish free and no pits). They are exceptionally well matched in color and luster (amazing for pearls which are a challenge to match). A well-known and reputable pearl retailer added new clasps on my strands so that all three fit together seamlessly, allowing me to wear the strands in more than 40 different configurations. I would not be wearing these all together if they were not a near-perfect match in size, luster and color. This same retailer gave me a complete written appraisal when they added the clasps to two of the three strands (I purchased the third one later). The two strands appraised for $10,000- that's $5,000/strand for pearls which cost me $829/strand (actually less than this because I purchased them during a sale). This is in line with the $3,900/strand appraisal I received from another pearl specialty retailer. The written appraisal confirmed they are AA pearls with high lustre, thick nacre, 90% matching (the highest percentage) and round shape. To the other reviewer I can only suggest returning the sub-par strand and ordering a new one because all 3 strands I've received have been better than anything I could ever have expected. I am grateful to Overstock for allowing me to purchase the pearls of my dreams for an unheard-of price!

    • When I opened the pouch I was amazed at the luster and obvious quality (*very* few blemishes, absolutely no pits) of this strand. After inspecting it closely, I immediately took it to a specialty pearl shop (i.e., direct importers from Japan, does all their own stringing in-house, has gorgeous things [many over $10k], and really fair prices but never "sales"). I spoke with the manager who advised me that these were a very nice strand indeed. Virtually all the pearls are 8.5mm (he checked them with a digital millimeter gauge), have fine luster, are exceptionally "clean," and are extremely well matched. His only negatives were that they are very slightly off round in shape and are a creamy-rose rather than a white-rose color. The color is quite beautiful (NOT at all yellow) but white rose is apparently more popular now (preferences change over time). He gave me a written valuation for the pearls based on the price I would have to pay to purchase an equal strand at his very good prices The verdict: $3,900! One note: pearls over 8 mm are like diamonds 1 carat and over-- much more valuable than those just under that mark. If you want a fine addition to your jewelry wardrobe buy the 8/8.5 mm strand; you will never regret it. Moreover, 8 mm is a better choice for the long haul because smaller pearls, while lovely, start looking a little "skimpy" on a more mature woman. Thank you Overstock!

      I spent quite a while researching pearls as I knew nothing when I started. I know a bit more now, but not enough to say I know alot. These pearls though met all expectations that I had for them. No blemishes that I could detect with the naked eye and I haven't put them under a scope nor will I. My wife adores them and I am very happy. The quality exceeds the price. I'd recommend to anyone.

      The pearls I ordered arrived today. I used a magnifying glass and found no pits and no real blemishes. They even looked good when held next to a strand of mikimoto pearls that I own. I had been looking at a similar strand at a local jewelers and they were priced at $1200 (on sale from $1800). I am very happy with this strand of pearls.

      I bought this pearl necklace for my mother's 60th birthday. Price: It was the best price, by far, on the internet after a 10% coupon -- and it still would have been the best price without the coupon. Appearance: The pearls were matched very well. The color was very white, with just a tinge of rose. No yellow whatsoever. Very close up, there were small imperfections in each pearl, but there were no major pits or bumps. When she put the necklace on, I couldn't see any imperfections at all. The lustre was not as good as I had hoped, but still very nice. I think for the price point, it's about as good as it can get. The clasp was tricky and not very substantial, but for the price, I can't complain. Also, as I read in a previous review, the pearls were knotted very closely. However, when the necklace was worn, it was not noticeable. Overall, my mother was very happy with the gift. I don't think there's a better value out there for a necklace of this quality. If you have the money to spend on a AAA Akoya necklace, then it may be worth it for the better lustre. Otherwise, this is a wonderful necklace.
