Important to remember: Freshwater aren't going to be perfect round balls
on May 15, 2012
My set of fresh water pearls came with a pink tint. They were nice to look at, though the egg-shaped beads, at least in my opinion, aren't as attractive as more uniformly round beads that admittedly cost a lot more. They obviously did try to match size/shape, but some beads were mis-shapen, even factoring in the egg shape.
Some beads weren't as smooth (like small pock marks in them, but still with the pearly glaze)as I expected. They did feel a little heavy at first, but after a while, I barely noticed them.
Overall, they were an OK piece of jewelry. I would buy them for myself, but not necessarily as a gift since not everyone would understand that freshwater pearls aren't going to be your stereotypical round shape and they may be disappointed in color/shape of the string they'd receive.
