The smell can linger on the thread and you might need to restring them. Really, the colors are spectacular! Please don't feel the pearls are defective in any way; you are just purchasing pearls that have been recently harvested.
    Thank you Pattye. I kept them in the open yesterday and now that smell is mostly gone. I wore the strand today and as a safety measure dabbed some perfume beneath my nose

    They do look great on you, amazing colors on this one. It's good that it smells less.

    They look beautiful on you. Hopefully any remaining smell doesn’t last long. I like the red thread.
