I love this! They look great at my window, taking the place of a curtain. And yes, when it is dark outside, and I have a light on in the room, they shimmer like that. In daytime, against the outside daylight, they look simply soft blue, with a rather turquoise light blue tone, not as blue as depicted.
If all of these would come with a neutral hanging rod, instead of a same color as the strings rod, they would get 5 stars from me. When the rod is visible, as in my situation, I feel that big blue bar is just too overpowering.
I would suggest or wish those bars were a neutral color on all of them.
ProsThe quality of the pearls and coins, the decorative effect these strings produce.
ConsThe big, same color as pearls hanging bar/rod. I wish it were of a neutral tone, e.g. white.
