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.
The pearl necklace is stunning with the combination of pearl and purple, a beautiful contrast. It’s adjustable to hang at a desired length. I wore it with a dark purple dress. Looked very nice!
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.
