    maiakity,

    I agree. It is so frustrating to order something based on the pictures and have the strand look much worse when it arrives.
    Why do the sellers even bother? They don't get repeat customers by sending such poor quality.

      I know! On top of that, I'm irritated I had to spend $5.50 to have this yucky strand shipped to me, and probably just as much or more to send it back for a refund! All because she couldn't be honest about the condition...I'm not a picky buyer here people, I just expect honesty and accurate descriptions and pictures!!!!

        In my experience pearls never arrive looking exactly like their photos, though. They are hard to photograph; color and luster are hard to capture accurately.

        Even stated size ranges are not as clear-cut as they seem...knowing the size of the smallest and largest pearls does not tell you how many of the other pearls are closer to the small end of the range and how many are near the upper end.

          ^^Yes, I totally agree with this statement, I've tried to photograph them too, it IS really hard! That's where the description is helpful...and there is NO excuse for nail polish!!!!

            omg i rec'd some pearls with nail polish recently, as well! but they were fairly cheap, they were EXPENSIVE to send back, and i didn't want to bother. i can use a few of the pearls, so what-ev. that seller is OFF my list. wonder if the're the same? start with a k? i even emailed to ask about it, and was assured they were 100% natural, no touch-ups. RIGHT.

              No, no K in this one! Most of the shop was gemstones, but she did have a small selection of pearls and this is one of them. I was assured that she didn't apply anything to them and that she sells "very nice beads", this was an isolated incident. I'm such a softie, I want to give her the benefit of the doubt that maybe it was applied somewhere "upstream"....I really wanted some other strands in her shop! (and in fact had placed a 2nd order, that I had requested her to cancel when I messaged her about these pearls...)
