My wife loves freshwater pearls. These look about the same as others I have purchased for her. The difference is the price - this was a really good deal. I used to purchase things directly from Gemstone King years ago. (The manufacturer) They always gave me great service and value. Same holds true today - it arrived quickly and in good condition.
Much smaller than it looks in the picture. I thought it would be the perfect size for my wife. The picture shows it dipping down the neck line. but when I received it, it looked like it was made for a child or perhaps it's supposed to be a choker necklace. I will have to get a necklace extension for it to fit and my wife is of average size and weight. Other than the fit, the necklace looks nice. Just beware of the size.
