I had always coveted a south sea pearl necklace. After reading the other reviews, I placed the order with some mixed expectations, fully aware that the pearl might be flawed but hoping that the flaws might not be too visible. I was pleasantly surprised when receiving this necklace earlier today -- the size is just right, and the pearl is amazing! It has a tiny spot near the bottom but is hardly visible. The pearl is round with a beautiful luster. I am really happy that I bought it! Thanks, Macy's!
