Absolutely beautiful!! I purchased this set for my daughter for Christmas. It has been a tradition for my three girls that when they got married, they either got a set of pearls or they wore mine and later got their set. This set was given after my daughter was married in September (she wore mine for her wedding). She and her sisters were very impressed with the quality of the pearls. They were absolutely gorgeous!! I was very happy with the quality, and the box that it came it was beautiful also. The only thing that I didn't like was I didn't have any more daughters to gift and buy in bulk! What an excellent bargain for the quality.
