This is the color I have been looking for. If you catch one of Artbeads awesome sales on pearls, load up on these. If not on sale you will still love them. And when Artbeads has a sale on their pearls, take no prisoners and get all you can.
These are lovely pearls. The color and luster are rich. Perfect for earrings and necklaces.
After reading the reviews, I decided these would be nice pearls to purchase. Was I ever wrong! Almost every pearl had what looked like dye spots on them, along with scratches. Unfortunately, I took the string apart to see if I could salvage any, so I can't return them. I cannot recommend these pearls. Maybe I got a bad string, but I am so disappointed.
These pearls are gorgeous. I bought them on sale, which makes me even happier. The color of the pearls I received is not as intense (if I can call it that) as the color of the pearls in the picture, but it is lovely nonetheless. The pearls are very even in size (about 8x9.5mm) and their surface is smooth. Up to now I have not found any defects. I am very happy with my purchase and will be back for more.
