Product Description

Appraised $2500 White Akoya Saltwater Cultured Pearl Necklace. This splendid Akoya necklace fashioned from only the highest quality Akoya salt water cultured 6.5-7mm pearls simply exudes luxury. Each AAA rated pearl has been hand selected for its smooth, unblemished surface, high sheen and luster, perfect round shape and flawless thick nacre. After their selection, the beads are professionally strung on fine silk, hand-knotted between each individual bead, then finished with a lovely 14K yellow gold clasp. When it arrives at your home, as with all of our fine jewelry, this necklace will be nestled in a sumptuous leatherette box designed to showcase its beauty.

We've had an independent gemologist appraise this necklace - the result is a $2,500 appraised value. However, we are able to offer it to you at a fraction of that value by buying directly from the source. This allows us to cut out the middleman and costly retail markups and pass the savings along to you. Please understand that original appraisals from certified appraisers cost between $120 to $150 each in nationwide market. Thus we are not able to send the original appraisals along the order. We'll send you the copy of the appraisal which was done on a same quality pearl necklace and for reference purposes only. Shop with confidence at Augustina Jewelry. *** If you want the matching Pearl Necklace and Earrings or bracelets, please search our Pearl Sets from the following ASIN. (B0011XXFQQ, B0011XQKF4, B000H5LG1K, B000H5JKH2, B000H5MYE8, B000H5JZRC, B000H5I0RS, B0011XRN3C, B0012A6MXG, B0011XTKFG, B0009FTH5A, B000O72YD0, B000AW076A). When we sell the Pearl Sets, we already match the Pearls for necklace, earrings, bracelets. If you buy pearl necklace, earrings or bracelets separately, they might not match 100%. Please note that each strand or each pair of earrings is quite unique in terms of color or luster.

    And now I have an excuse to upgrade her earrings to Akoya in the future.
    B. Lewis
    They are a good size, color is creamy with a hint of pink, and the weight is heavy, length is true, I would buy these again.

    I believe she is quite satisfied with the gift, and in turn, I am as well.

    I was skeptical about buying jewelry over the internet, but the prices were too good to pass up, and Augustina Jewelry had gotten such great reviews that I figured I'd take a chance. I'm VERY glad I did! The string of pearls is beautiful, and the stringing very carefully done. The quality seems excellent - there's no need to spend more.

    On a side note, Augustina Jewelry is one of the best online stores/sellers that I've ever dealt with. Great customer service every time I've contacted them.

    I bought these for my wife for her first mother's day this year. She has a pair of pearl earrings already and I wanted to get her this matching necklace. The matching part didn't work out (more on that later), but I am totally pleased with the necklace. But initially I wasn't...

    When I got the pearls, I compared them to her earrings and they were noticeably smaller. I really wanted matching size and so I started to consider other options. I went to the mall to a major department store and found some freshwater pearls that were 0.5mm smaller than her earrings (I think they are 8.0mm). So I bought them because 1) the size was a better match and 2) they were $110 cheaper. I figured I'd just return the Akoyas.

    I came home and compared the freshwater pearl necklace to the earrings and it was a good size match. But that's the end of the good news story. The freshwater pearls were not nearly as round as the Akoya and they were stranded very poorly (very tight to the point of the necklace not draping or laying or swaying nicely). Also, I found the color of the Akoyas to be more pleasing.

    So despite my attempt to get a better match, when I laid the freshwater pearls next to the Akoya strand, I felt there was no comparison. The $110 extra was absolutely worth it. And now I have an excuse to upgrade her earrings to Akoya in the future.

    So my final, honest advice is: Men - don't cheap out. Buy the good stuff, it will be worth it.

    Let me precede this review first by stating that I am a 24 year old male who has never purchased Pearls before in my life. My knowledge of pearls are, at best, extremely limited. Thus, I decided to do a little bit of research on Akoya pearls and the difference between saltwater and freshwater pearls before purchasing this necklace. As this is a gift to my girlfriend of two years for Christmas/New Years, I wanted to make sure she was pleased with this item thoroughly. After purchasing through Amazon at the extremely fair price of $350.00 (supposedly 50% off the marked price, my necklace came in roughly three days later via USPS mail. Very quick indeed.

    Opening the package up, the first item that dropped out was an appraisal of the necklace by some third party company, and at the price of $2,500. There are multiple things that I find a bit surprising about this appraisal. The first thing is that the value is $2,500; like I said before, I do not know a great deal about pearls. However, To value these at anything near this amount is, to be honest, kind of crazy. I don't know where they came up with this value. As another reviewer said, they might have the currency incorrect. If the Pearls are retailing now at $350.00 dollars, I don't see who would appraise them for $2,500. The second thing that jumped out at me regarding the appraisal is that its no more than a copy of an appraisal. It looks like the millionth copy of the same proposal, stuffed into every box of pearls. In other words, it looks silly and outdated. The third thing that jumped out of me, which confirms my last statement, is that there's a date on the appraisal of 2003.

    Let me begin by saying that I dont know anything about pearls (well, almost nothing). The delivered pearls are beautiful, and Im sure they are going to make her happy for Christmas. The pearls have almost no visible defects and are practically perfect. However, they are not nearly as white in color as the picture shows; mine have a pinkish hue to them. That doesn't bother me, but if you want a very white pearl don't buy these. The "third party appraisal" is an absolute joke. I would be ashamed to include it in a box of pearls that cost almost 400$. It is a COPY of a generic form (no not an original) with a COPY of a signature. I also think they got a little greedy when "appraising" the pearls....2,500$. Maybe they got the currency wrong. Bottom line is someone needs to do something about that, either make the appraisal legitimate or just get rid of it.

    I would buy from again, but it didn't earn 5 stars. Sorry pearls.

    I have no experience buying pearls. But once these arrived I started looking at others in the stores. These just have a soft color that says quality not quanity

    My wife asked me to purchase a set of pearls for my daughter for her birthday. Like a typical guy I wanted to buy them online, and I waited until close to the event to act. I reviewed several options and decided to buy through [...], because of other customer reviews, and their association with Amazon. I requested overnight shipping with my order, but failed to account for the horrendous amounts of snow in the Northeast. To their credit, Augustina got my order to Coastal Georgia on time for my daughter's birthday. Not only is my daughter in love with them, my wife believes they are nicer than two different sets I purchased for her, in years past, for more money, from brick and mortar stores. I would definitely buy from Augustina again.
