Not as described
Whilst the lustre of the pearls is good, the sizes of the pearls is not as described. I have tried to measure mine and feel they are more 8 - 9mm, with a few possibly 10mm but certainly none are 11mm. A tahitian bracelet (magnetic clasp) bought quite some time ago has much larger pearls and my golden pearl necklace pearls are definitely larger. If a bracelet had been available when I was about to return the tahitian TSV I may have kept one & bought a bracelet, I had hesitated to do this as the pearl clasps were not of a type that could look good as part of a longer necklace. The pearls in the TSV necklace were better shaped, and some larger, than this necklace.
I realize that the description it says "all measurements approx" but I feel that with smaller pearls it is not worth the money and so it is reluctantly being returned.
