The pearls are not really black but more the color of hematite if you're familiar with that color. However, they are beautiful and exactly what my daughter was looking for.
These are uniform in size, nicely strung (property knotted), and attractive for daily wear in the 8-8.5 mm size. One of the pearls on my string has a slight flaw, which isn't too noticeable, but that pearl should not have been chosen to be in the center-front of the necklace. This arrived in an elaborate presentation box, but because there was no padding inside that box the pearls were bashing against each other during shipment! Not good. Be aware that the color is so dark that these look like onyx or maybe hematite. I like them, but I would have preferred a little more luster.
This is a large pendant the size is close to a real MasterLock type of gym lock. Fans of Michael Valitutti would be familiar with the sizes of his jewelry. Mine arrived with small scratch on one of the amethyst which you can only see very close up really the quality control is lacking, item should have been marked As Is
