I bought these pearls as a gift for my mom, and she LOVES them! Having said that, they aren't perfect; they do have some scuffs and blemishes, but that just proves that they're real, natural pearls. The vivd orange box was kind of dancing on the edge of obnoxious, but it was quickly forgotten. The length was a bit shorter than she prefers and the clasp is not the easiest to work, so I added a magnetic clasp/necklace extender. The bracelet was slightly smaller than anticipated, but it still fit Mom's larger wrist. Buying from GemStoneKing was a pleasure, as always.
