These pearls are nearly flawless and have a very nice lustre. Unfortunately, the color is paler than I expected based on the picture online - more medium golden than dark golden - hence the 4 stars. Other than that, these are lovely pearl earrings that would otherwise rate 5 stars. If you like a softer yellow rather than the deeper golden color, you will be thrilled with these! I was told that you can upgrade the quality and it results in slightly darker pearls.
