Honora 5-8mm CFW Baroque & Liquid Pearl 90cm Necklace Sterling Silver - 691261
Pearls Only OK - Packaging Not!
I received this necklace today and was so disappointed when I opened the package. The pearls were not as impressive as they appeared on the screen. I really can't see any other colours in mine except the teal and the small pistachio pearls interspersed between the long pearls do nothing to enhance the necklace. They look so dull. I ordered these pearls as I thought it would be nice to have something different. But I shall be returning them. I was annoyed that they arrived in one of those awful leatherette pouches when the presenter said that all the pearls were packaged in the pretty pouches shown on screen. Not so for me! Please,Ralph, don't continue to keep using the leatherette pouches.

...in a good way. It's absolutely fabulous: I can't stop looking at it. The play of colours in the liquid pearls is perfectly offset by the more restrained small beads. I love it!

Very little lustre, very disappointed
I own quite a few Honora pieces and I have to say next to those items I'm very disappointed with these pearls. The set shown on the show was beautiful, it was full of different secondary colours and the lustre was amazing. My pearls are not matte they do have a slight sheen, but that is it. The little spacing pearls have more of a lustre than the large pearls. When you look at the pearls they all just look the same colour, green. I have to closely inspect them to see the odd secondary colour, I'm very disappointed. I've thought about sending this set back and ordering another set to see if those have some secondary colours and a nice lustre as those shown in the show. Maybe I've just been really unlucky, such a shame as they would be just perfect if they had been anything like the pearls shown on the TV.

I have said I would not recommend this to a friend - but only because I want to be the only person I know who has it! The colour is incredibly beautiful, the lustre is magnificent, the length is perfect. I am really looking forward to wearing it with a classic white shirt and jeans, as well as something a little more formal! Worth every penny.
