So I had a seller from etsy say that she can put my 1.25 pink moissanite in to her setting.
When it was delivered to her, it took her a week to respond to 2 messages I sent her asking if it was delivered okay. Normally she responds back within the hour…
I just received my ring and there is no way in hell this is the same stone….my moissy was not this pink and I even tried to photograph it the same way I did my loose stone and it is coming out on camera completely different..
Heres my loose stone
And here is the ring I was sent (in real life they are really pink…with lots of rainbow but as you can see if they were the same stone, the camera would pick them up the same)
Does it look different to you…what do I do now…I paid through paypal…I messaged her but she hasnt respond and I dont have more than a few days to wait because if I need to dispute it on paypal I need to do it before 30 days..

@SaugaBride: Maybe take it to a jeweler and have it tested? I’m not sure what else you can do, it’s really difficult to tell just by looking at pictures.

Can you take it to a local jeweler and have them test it? I think it would be worth taking the time in the next few days to do this, especially if she duped you like that.

second PP’s, you need to take it to a jeweler immediately and have it tested.

yea, i know its not the same stone because the backing doesnt look the same, on the moissy it had almost what looked to be like a coating..it was more of a orangy,red,pink and this is just pure pink and the back is the same as the front
Does anyone know what I can do to get the stone back …all i paid this seller was for the setting, so how can i convince paypal that she took a 400 item and swapped it

Hard to say because even the two first photo’s of your stone look like two completely different stones. But I’d have it tested as PP’s said. I probably would not have sent my stone out to someone from Etsy in the first place :

There is no way anyone can know FOR SURE on the internet. Haul ass to the jeweler!

I think it’s the metal behind the stone making it appear a different color, but get it tested if you’re unsure.

It doesn’t look the same as the moissy at all. Especially if the backside of the stone doesn’t look like your previous loose moissanite stone. The underside of a color enhanced moissy has like a rainbow color film that makes it pretty difficult to “see through” the stone, so if that isn’t going on with your stone (and you can see straight through it, it probably isn’t a color enhanced moissy.
No way to know for sure though.. Definitely get it tested.

@jny1179: I was just going to say the same thing but you beat me to it. Stones look different set than when they’re unset.
The ONLY way to know for sure is to have it tested. None of us can tell anything from your pictures.

@SaugaBride: The only way you can even BEGIN the process of getting your stone back is if you go to the jeweler ASAP and get it tested to confirm.
