Fair quality pearls with a nice lustre and a few blemishes. The nacre has reflection but does not appear very heavy, better than faux pearls any day with the look of the real thing! Pretty sure these have a peg with a screw for the pearl to attach and then are glued. The glue is yellowed and there is some residue as can be seen from the side in a place or two. Overall very nice for that classic look!
