Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
These fresh water pearls have a lovely sheen and lustre. They have a weight to them so they feel substantial. The pearls are strung on silk, a positive aspect compared to pearls strung on elastic. Spacer beads are between each slightly pink fresh water pearl. The included earrings are a nice addition.
It would have been nice if the silk string was knotted between the pearls or spacer beads. This is important because if the string breaks they all slide off. Many of the better pearl makers put a knot between the beads so that if the string breaks you only lose one pearl. I've heard that you have to get pearls re-strung if you keep them for a long time, or want to hand them down to a younger generation.
A few pearls showed small signs of milling but not noticeable for the most part.
These are appropriate for elegant events. Pearls seem to be the "go to" jewelry for fancy occasions. You can't go wrong with these pearls for an elegant accessory.
My wife received a couple compliments when she wore these to a wedding. Which is always nice. She wore them long with a larks head style knot loop at the bottom.
