A little too long...
Although I thought these faux pearls were very pretty, for me personally they were too long and did not lay completely flat. I agree that the box is quite inadequate and noticed a considerable amount of kinking in the strings leading to an uneven look. I have sent them back and ordered the shorter two strand version which I feel will suit me more and lay better. All in all a nice product though.

worth every penny
these are lovely pearls, truly classic and sophisticated, they can indeed be handed down only downside as per the last review is the size of the box which could be bigger as the pearls kink when stored in box provided , but all in all excellent purchase ....

old fashion eleglance
very pleased with these pearls, they have a old charm about them. they lay flat and are a good length, will fit nicely over dresses and jumpers. pretty clasp and easy to do up. you wont be sorry with this purchase, i do wish they came in a long box so they could lay flat, enabling not to kink. hence 4 stars. nevertheless a lovely purchase which will never date.

This is a beautifully designed and very elegant necklace. The three long strands hang beautifully and are perfectly spaced to hang with equal distance between them. I have a mega-long single string of Honora freshwater pearls that I wear three times round the neck, but because they are one heavy strand, they inevitably move around as you wear them and have to be regularly adjusted. No such problem with these Jackie Kennedy faux pearls. The pearls themselves have a gorgeous creamy finish. Disappointed that the box they come in is so small, as a long strand of pearls like this needs space and in fact when not wearing them I keep them hanging on my dressing table mirror which stops them from kinking and keeps them hanging smooth. Not over keen on the silvertone clasp which I feel looks a little bit cheap but I will be wearing that at the back so not a probem. Overall thrilled wth these and I know I will wear them a lot! Would look fabulous on girls from 18-80 and over!
