I'm new here on the forum, but I would like to ask a question.
I bought a new freshwater pearl necklace and on several of the pearls, at the site of the drill holes, several are double sized...meaning that the shape at the drill hole is like the shape of an "8". Is this typical? It seems unsightly to me, but this is my first purchase and I don't want to complain without reason.
Additionally, some of the pearls have visible drill holes totally separate from where the pearl is strung, as though they made a mistake and redid it. I find this unacceptable and have complained about it...it made me feel like I bought outlet quality pearls. There are just so many instances of it, that I feel that it can't possibly be an error.
Like I said, I am new at all this, and I would appreciate feedback from all you seasoned pearl lovers.
Thanks in advance
