Customer Service: Excellent
The 30% discount was not taken off at check out, but I called amazon and they very quickly credited my card the difference. It took about 2 minutes (from 1st ring to end of call), one of the smoothest and quickest customer service events I have had in my life.
Shape and Size: Great
The pearls are closer to the 6.5mm than the 6mm mark which I was not expecting. And all of them are round, not one is misshapen.
The luster of saltwater pearls is unmistakable. Are there pricier akoyas out there with more luster than these? of course. But are there freshwater pearls that have this luster? Not that I've seen.
With my arm stretched out in front of me, strand in hand, there are NO blemishes visible whatsoever, all you notice is the luster. This is about the closest a person would be standing to you in public.
Holding the strand right up to my face (about 3 inches from my eyes): am going through and examining each pearl one at a time. 6 pearls have a tiny bump or knick worth noting on them (4 of them are in the area of the strand that would sit on my nape). and 2 pearls have a bubble-like blemish. Now I'm sure a jeweler could find all the other little minuscule things that are wrong in the other pearls, but I dont have the time or magnifying glass to do it.
The Stringing: Fair to Good
They are indeed individually strung and double knotted which is a plus. Someone reviewed that it seemed like dental floss, clearly they have never seen silk before. I have, and this is silk.
I do understand that reviewer's concern about "kinks". The craftsmanship on the double knotting is fair, not amazing, so some of the knots don't bend as well as they should. This is especially noticeable when you first take the strand out of the pouch. It has been curled up and and the "kinks" are obvious.
I unclasped them and extended them, and kind of how you would unbend a telephone cord I moved and worked with the spots where the knots needed to bend in another direction. I did this very carefully and gently and it worked out great, the strand sits well now with no "kinks". I didn't mind working with the double knots a bit to get them to sit right, but you might.
The Clasp: Meh.
I HATE fishhook clasps, I find them hard to close. But with that being said, this one is no harder to work with than another fishhook clasp I've had to work with, if anything it might be easier because its so sturdy. And I will admit I haven't lost a single piece of jewelry that has a fishhook clasp.
The Price and Value: Excellent
I did alot of searching and this is by far the best deal on akoya pearls I could find. Only $35 after the 30% discount and with free one day shipping. I also happened to have $15 credit so my total came out to be $20! (That's less than I payed for my freshwater strand)
Why would you pay the same or even more for freshwater when you can have REAL saltwater akoyas?
Pros: Luster, Value!, Customer service.
Cons: I had to loosen up some of the doubleknots, fishhook clasp, I only ordered one.
Every Day Beauty
By Daniel G. Lebryk
This necklace was very well received as a Christmas present. I am not a gemologist, nor a pearl expert. To my untrained eye, these pearls look very nice. No they are not perfection like strands that cost many times more money than this pleasant necklace. The pearls are a nice white color, a good size, and nicely round (I'm not seeing a lot of flaws on the pearls)
I was a bit worried that this strand would be too short, but in fact it is just about right. It is just between chocker and full necklace length. The clasp is nice and sturdy.
My wife loves them because she can wear them all the time and not worry about them being damaged. They look beautiful on her, and they have made both of us happy.
If the recipient of your gift is a pearl expert and expects perfection, well you will have to spend a lot more money and these are not a possibility. If they would love a thoughtful gift and the ability to wear these all the time, you've found a winner with this necklace.
Chinese Akoya? Don't think so!
By happy buyer
I ordered the 6-6.5mm A-grade Akoya cultured pearl necklace which arrived today. I expected an Akoya necklace. NOWHERE on the box, or tag does the name Akoya appear. The tag reads "Made in China". Nowhere does it give any indication that these are cultured saltwater pearls, which the Akoya name implies. "Made in China" does not mean these beads were created in the Akoya South Pacific pearl farms. I am very disappointed in the product especially since this an item presented and sold by Amazon.
