    It's a pretty pearl, and looks good on all sides, so there's that. I cannot see the hairline cracks in your photos, so that's also a good thing. They are not obvious.

    Thanks BWeaves, it’s good to hear that the cracks are not that obvious to others! I guess I am observing it with a much more critical eye

    It's very pretty, but there shouldn't be any cracks. Maybe if you reach out to the seller they can send you a new one or at least refund you.

    I feel like you should return it. The crack could have been at the tip and just split more during shipping, but it's hard to know what will happen to it if you were to drop it etc. It's very pretty - but needs to be either discounted substantially or refunded on return.

    Charlotta, Katbran, thank you for both your feedback! My first instinct was also to return the pearl, as I was a bit disappointed with it. But now I am going back and forth - the pearl is quite pretty in person, returning would be a hassle, I have already paid import fees - and all things considered, being that I have paid it a bit under 300 USD for what is indeed a natural abalone pearl with nice colors, I don't feel too ripped off. But then again, I am a bit scared that the pearl might be too fragile to be set as a pendant

    Oh my goodness, what a happy looking collection!

    I don’t think anyone here can testify to the pearl-craving being satisfied forever...
