For what these are and the price--very nice!
on February 18, 2011
Okay, first there is no way you can compare these to high grade, quality deep sea pearls so I will not even go there and wouldn't expect any comparison in the first place. But, what can you expect for the price? The reason I write this is because some reviewers of pearls on Amazon really complain about irregularities in bargain pearls of excellent quality like they are expecting to be able to get the precision, year's of dedication to a single strand, and expert diligence of a $10,000 and beyond quality strand of pearls from a strand of pearls with an SRP under a $100 and marked down price under $20. Sorry, you just can't do that and these pearls won't go there, but for what they are, they are very nice, even rather awesome.
For fashion pearls that are actually real, these are very nice! All-time wear without the worry & panic if they happen to break. The weight and feel on the neckline is very comfortable with the expected luxurious, silky feel of pearls, and yes, there is some weight to them as they are real pearls. The pearls are uniform and matched well, and the strand is tied well and secure. The nacre (mother of pearl) is evidently thin to moderate on most all the pearls with one or two rough edges and the luminescence could wear off after time if not treated well, but at least they have a very nice ivory/white pearlescent color that will be there forever if taken care of properly. Though I wouldn't call it a high grade luster as they proclaim these pearls have in the details, they still a have a lovely aura and glow when worn. The pearls are fairly (surprisingly) round and almost blemish-free, but have enough natural essence to let you know these are true pearls. They come in a little blue tulle bag, which makes me think that, for the price these pearls are on markdown, they would make lovely little guest trinket bags for the wedding reception of the bride on a budget or possibly flower girl gifts for older flower girls. Also, could be used as guest gifts for your ladies' afternoon tea party and would really impress your friends. Truly an above expected quality for the price so there are many "just because" gift opportunities these can be given for and would be greatly appreciated.
