I bought this strand of pearls because I've bought a pearl necklace from Overstock before and had wonderful success. This one was even better! I know that freshwater pearls are never completely round and the chances of getting similarly shaped pearls throughout an entire necklace is challenging but this is one of the most beautiful strands I have ever seen or worn! The pearls are very close to being completely round, the luster is incredibly good, the size 9-10mm pearls is nearly perfect, and the color is exquisite. Needless to say, I am extremely pleased with this pearl necklace. It is the perfect length (by the way, when measuring how long you want the necklace make sure you measure from the clasp at one end to the hook at the other end and that's your total length, just in case you didn't know or if you wanted a bit longer strand of pearls. The clasp is a little more difficult to connect but I prefer that as I've had a necklace come loose and fall off due to the clasp not being more secure. If you want an exceptional gift for a wife, girlfriend, daughter, daughter-in-law, or even for yourself this is definitely the strand of pearls well worth buying! I love it and would purchase this item again for friends or family members. The "gift box" that the pearls come in is lovely and a great way to store your pearls when you are not wearing them. I highly recommend these to anyone who doesn't want to spend a lot of money for a beautiful strand of pearls. I wore them at Christmas parties and was asked by many, many guests where I got them and if I liked dealing with Overstock.com. I ordered the necklace on December 20th and received them on December 24th. I am very, very pleased with this necklace!
These are real pearls, they are not perfect. The pearls nacre is thick, which is good. Luster is above average. The clasp is a little thin. For the size of the pearls and price, this strand is a good bargain.
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.
