I bought this necklace for Mother's Day and am very disappointed with the quality of the pearls. While they do have a good luster and are a good size, there are just way too many blemishes on them. Many of the pearls in the strand I received have large dents in them, and you can definitely see it from a distance. I have bought a single strand pearl necklace and earrings on Overstock before and they were much much better quality than these. I think the pearl grade should be A at best. I will be returning these.
