I compared a lot of products and decided to go for this one because all those excellent reviews. I had a high expectation on the necklace but I am pretty disappointed. The necklace is not white; it has a little bit pink. The grading says AAA and the shape is round. I would say the shape is nearly round not round. The pearls are not really high-quality. I bought a 8mm-9mm 45cm necklace; but the pearls are smaller than the necklace I saw at XXXXXX. The necklace is not bad if you didn't see it very close. I didn't receive the fancy box that others mentioned in the reviews. You get what you pay for. If you really care about the quality, don't buy this one. You can go to retailers/merchandise store and pick a better one for the same price.
