This necklace met my expectations on all levels. The luster is comparable to AAA pearls from a top pearl seller with initials TPS. The color is a creamy white with slightly rose overtones (not pink though!). There are a few very small surface imperfections on some of the pearls, but if someone is close enough to see them then they are wayyy too close to you. Seriously, you practically need a loupe to see them, but they are there. The pearls seem to be perfectly round and very well matched in size and color. I am not an expert in pearls but I have done a lot of research and comparison when purchasing the pearls I own. If I were to grade these I would give luster AA+ to AAA, surface AA+, shape AAA. For me, this strand is worth every penny. And I compared this strand side by side with one from TPS that was $500 more (TPS pearls were maybe 0.1-0.2mm larger and length was 2" shorter). I am so excited about this necklace! This is my second pearl purchase from Overstock and I am beyond impressed with the quality of the pearls they offer.
I love baroque pearls,keshi pearls, potato pearls...... And regular 'round' pearls ! But, this pearl isn't just baroque, It's Huge!! And I hugely love it! I will add a longer chain, just because I want it a bit lower on my neckline, add my baroque earrings & ring, and make holiday rounds in this magnificent pearl! Thank you, Overstock, you haven't disappointed me.
