meliamartinez31 :  I hope so! Ooohhhhhhh what a beautiful pair! Perfect for earrings indeed! I love the color and would love to see them sparkle in the sun.

marriedalready69 :  I was, for the setting! What a very special cut. I see it’s a custom cut but does it also have a name?

Julius524 :  Full of life! Great stone you got there. You will turn it into a ring?

Ladies, I have a question. How do your USPS tracking numbers look like?

lelie :  I have tracking numbers that start with RG, or LK, and then a string of numbers, then another 2 letters at the end of that.

I was expecting my first stone to be delivered over the weekend, but the USPS tracking updated to say “NO AUTHORIZED RECIPIENT AVAILABLE” and has not changed since then. This happend at 1:30pm on Saturday, when I was at home. Have any of you ever seen this happen before?

MrsNerdy :  I had those very words show up one time.  They delivered the next day though in my case.  It’s probably very close to being delivered I’d say!

Thank you for the answers regarding the tracking numbers, lovely ladies!

Here’s my problem and I’m not sure how to deal with it. I’ve been waiting for 8 moissanite stones for a small eternity now. It were my very first Ebay moissanite purchases! They’ve been shipped through USPS (really?) and should have been delivered around the 3rd week of June. Almost a month later, none of the stones have been delivered.

So I contacted USPS and asked them to check out the tracking numbers for me. The answer? USPS does not recognise the numbers, they are not registered in the system.

I contacted the sellers (because this is from 3 different Ebay sellers… What? Yes, indeed, 3 different sellers, but they all shipped around the same day!), however none of them is even responding to me, though I clearly informed them of what USPS told me.

What now? We’re talking about 8 moissanite stones, all around 2 carats, 7 round cuts and 1 very expensive princess cut on which I actually spent a little fortune. What would you ladies do? Switch over to Paypal? Or wait for another eternity?

marriedalready69 :  I feel your excitement! Looking forward to seeing pictures!

 marriedalready69 :  Should I open a case with Ebay and Paypal? Or Ebay only? Or Paypal only? I’ve got no clue what to do, I’ve never opened a case before. Until now, I kept hoping that they would get delivered, but somehow all hope is gone now.

lelie :  Open thru Ebay.  If you haven’t rec’d the stones, you will get your money back.

As M’already said, go to the drop down menu in your My Ebay.  You have to open a dispute for each individual sale. Just follow Ebay’s directions.  The Seller(s) will have a few days to respond, or they will just accept you to get a reund.  This is not even in questiion, Ebay’s buyer protection program has you covered.

As to why they didn’t get to you, maybe they never actually sent them.  They are high volume sellers now, and just don’t seem to care much about their customers sometimes.

I never rc’d my blue moissy, just filed and got my .99 cents back.  Would have preferred to get the darn stone.

As to the USPS tracking numbers, no USPS will not recognize those numbers given to you at the beginning – they are not using the USPS (it doesn’t exist in India, or China, etc.) when they ship.  It is going international and once the US international sorting center sends it out to your  address, they update the status.
