Value seems good to me,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Sterling-Silver 8-8.5 MM White Freshwater Cultured Pearl Strand, 18" (Jewelry)
The deal on this pearl necklace seems outstanding. The pearls look nice.
As for the size, it's advertised at 8mm to 9mm, but the one I got through this offering was only 7.2mm. That's a big difference, but again the deal is so good that I could not bring myself to deduct a rating star.
Pearls that are 7mm cannot be expected to win random compliments, and my wife reported no comments or compliments received. Larger pearls appear to be much larger, probably due to the magical nature of pearls.
These are freshwater pearls. This kind of pearl is produced from freshwater mussels, almost always in China. Freshwater pearls, required to be called "freshwater cultured pearls" in commerce by the Federal Trade Commission, are known to appear flatter - not truly round. These pearls are par for the course, somewhat flat and not truly round.
The string holding these pearls together is strong, and that counts for a lot. I would have deducted a star if the string where weak.
This pearl necklace is a nice accessory. It's conservative and modest, opposite of flashy, and in very good taste especially in a typical work environment. It can be worn often with a wide variety of apparel. I recommend it with one proviso: don't tell people the price (seriously). Whoever learns the price will likely change their opinion of this necklace when in fact it is in very good taste.

I DO NOT PLACE ANY STOCK in opinions written by PROFESSIONAL REVIEWERS. BIAS means NOTHING.
