These are big, real, freshwater pearls. Yes, I see discoloration and blemishes. My bracelet has 24 unknotted pearls on an eleastic strand. The pearls do not slide around, so I think unknotted isn't a deal breaker. None of the pearls are perfect, but for under $10, I didn't expect them to be. The bracelet looks very classic on an arm. Liked my bracelet so much that I'm ordering a 2nd one for my mother. I stopped short of ordering the set of 10, thinking it's more colors than I need, but perhaps I made a mistake! I could have given my mother one of the colors in the set and had nine left -- not just one -- for an extra $*! Shoot! Who knew at the time I'd turn around and order another bracelet? :)
Very nice, good quality. Pearls are a bit bigger than I thought they would be, but it's still pretty. Chain and tightening mechanism are not the best quality (I have other adjustable bracelets that move more smoothly) it does loosen up and require readjustment, but not to an extreme extent. Overall, good product for the price.
