We guarantee that all our merchandise, pearls, diamonds and colored stones are genuine. We do not sell any imitation pearls. All our jewelry is set in either 14K or 18K yellow or white gold, unless otherwise specified.
Since pearls are products of mother nature, every pearl is one of a kind and no two pearls will be exactly alike. Bearing this in mind, we will offer you pearls that are similar to the ones photographed on our website, unless otherwise stated. There may be slight variations in color and shape, since our pearls are genuine and not imitation. Please be rest assured that you will be receiving the pearls that match our product specifications as close as possible.
