    I just did a search for twisted pearl and shell necklaces and came up with a few Chinese Pearl Vendor sites. Some of the stuff is really pretty and looks real but it's so cheap! I'm leary about the quality. I'm talking under $5.00 for some of them. One of the sites was topearl.com
    Here are a few pictures of the ones I like for my BM's:

    If anyone has any info on these type of websites please let me know.
    Thanks!

      I don't know anything about these sites, but I love those green necklaces. I think for under $5 each, you should just chance it. You could love them. If not, then you are not out that much.

        I have ordered silver jewelry from a chinese company in the past and was very happy with them.

          True! Thanks! I'll let you know how they look once I get them.

              Usually their stuff is nice, its just that its all knock-offs. I say if you like it and they are that cheap go for it!

                So are the pearls fake?

                  Those are cute! Just be careful with jewelry from China, with all the lead poisoning scares going around. These look like they'd probably be safe, but you never know...

                    under 5$...they have to be fake ! You can't even get 1 pearl for 5$ imagine the whole thing ! Don't forget that real pearls don't come in that color (white-beige-pink or black)

                    But I have to say that they are very cute and for 5$, I would get them !
