This was exactly the classic pearl strand necklace I was looking for. I didn''t want to have any disappointment with this purchase, so I ordered gem quality. The pearls appear flawless and very near round. The strand is uniform in size, color, and luster. The pearls are ivory and mirror but without being metallic-looking - the coloring is perfect for my gold skin tone. Great size (8-9mm) and length (18" hangs about 2-2.5" below my collar-bone). Nothing negative at all about this purchase.
