        Thanks for all the kind words. The pearls feel kinda heavy on my neck -- would take some getting used to haha. I think I'll wear them out for a test drive tomorrow. Restringing would take awhile yet - have to learn to do it properly first.

        Back to my original query -- so, are these pearls considered "good quality" pearls in terms of their um pearly characteristics? What exactly am I looking out for when judging pearls? Size, I understand. Lustre - some of you mentioned that these pearls have good lustre. To me, they don't look particularly shiny/lustre-y...how exactly do I compare?

          When you look at white pearls under a single light source against a white background, more lustrous pearls will have a darker circular reflection area in the center. Pearls with lower luster will have more vague reflections and dull pearls may be chalky white and have little reflection.

          I can see your hands clearly in this photo! Now those are reflections!

            Msmyng these pearls are really pretty -- I am no expert, but they look like good quality freshwaters to me.

            In terms of what to look for, I believe you're looking at size, luster, roundness, surface (no blemishing), and good matching.

            Enjoy your pearls!!
