This pearl necklace is the first of many more I plan to purchase through Overstock.com. A 16 inch pearl necklace is a must have for every girl's collection. This necklace is lovely; very lustrous, a natural beauty. The clasp makes it easy for me to put it on and take off by myself, which is very important. It is hand knotted between each pearl, which brings peace of mind when wearing it while holding a small child!
