I would be careful with accusations.  Ask her if she’s willing to meet up at the jeweler to check if it’s a diamond before purchase.  

Also so you can mention that you’d like this because there are shady people out there that would not pass a diamond with a moissanite.  

Give a Public Service Announcement to potential buyers about being aware.

There is no way to tell from that one photo what it is. Could be a cz, could be a diamond, could be a moissanite. A diamond tester would tell, but seriously? from that one photo?

If you don’t want to personally take the risk, fine, but I don’t know why you seem to be on a crusade to damage a seller when you actually have no idea if it’s “fake” or not or you wouldn’t be asking here. What’s it to you, really?

It sounds like there’s something else going on here, like actually you maybe know this person and have it out for her. This is really strange and so is your reaction to it.

If you’re not interested in buying the ring, what does it matter? Caveat emptor. It’s not your job to protect everybody and slinging around accusations with no proof online is generally not a good idea.

I don’t know how you could possibly tell from that picture that it’s not a diamond. That’s a big accusation. Whether I thought it was or wasn’t, I’d still get it checked out before such a large purchase.

So with no reason other than she’s asking a lot of money for something that is potentially worth a lot of money, you’re posting on her post that it’s probably fake and people shouldn’t buy it.

Really? People do this to sellers online?

So what is she supposed to do? Ask $5 for a real diamond ring because otherwise she’s guaranteed to be swindling people? Any buyer can certainly get it appraised before finalizing the purchase if they’re careful with their money and if they’re not, it’s not your problem. 

What, exactly, about this says “moissanite or amora” to you that makes you think your statement is reasonable? It’s a white stone in a ring. There is NO POSSIBLE WAY to tell from the photo.  Why this ring over any other ring on these buy/sell pages? Because this one is expensive?

I think your paranoia is really extreme considering you have no dog in the fight, so to speak.

Soloudinhere15:  Sadly people do it all the time. I am on a few FB site that are buy,trade,sell and there is a trend where someone say got stood up for some reason or another and they make it their business to destroy what others are selling.


flutterbiikisses:  I agree with the others, why bother post on her saying it looks fake to you? It really isn’t your business to call someone out if fake or not.  Most of those sites are buyers beware.  It really annoys the ever loving out of me when a busy body does this.  If you are not interested in what the person has for sale don’t comment.  IF you are really concerned why don’t you message that person instead of calling that person out

flutterbiikisses:  Other posters have asked and you haven’t answered – what about this picture makes you say it looks like an amora or moissy?

It looks like a diamond to me. Clarity isn’t what I’d expect from a moissanite or AG. You really can’t tell from a pic that far away. A diamond from only 8 years ago probably has a number on the girdle. You really had no reason to call her out on it.

flutterbiikisses:  Nooooo waaaaaay can you tell from a photo if it’s a moissanite. I’m not even sure you could tell in person unless you were an experienced jeweler. I’d MYOB if I were you.
