@heathuhhhhwebbbb:  Maybe they’d like to have it made with a Moissy? Rings can be made with different stones…

You can only post to the photo and let them know that the picture has a diamond and not a moissy in it. Might be frustrating but hey its like posting a picture of your cat and someone calling it a raccoon. Technically you can’t stop them, but you at least know the truth 🙂

I guess if it bothers you you could edit your images? put a watermark on them with the specs of the ring? that way if they pin it then the info is there on the image.

I’m not really bothered by anything like that. It’s not as though someone is going to notice it in person and think “hey! is she passing that off as a diamond when it’s moissanite! I know – I’ve seen it on Pinterest!”

I’d just let it go.

I agree with a PP to just let it go. Unfortunately, once you put your pictures on the internet they can end up anywhere. You CAN watermark your pictures but there are programs that people use to remove watermarks (I notice this just from Instagram). I think this is why some bees say they won’t put up pictures in their dress or, if they do, they will not put the exact dress info.

Sorry about this…definitely does suck!

That’s frustrating, and unless you gave up your rights to that photo when you uploaded it to Pinterest, they are required to work with you to make sure your image is not misused on their site. The photo is your property, and can’t legally be used by others without your permission, unless you sign those rights away.

It seems extremely sloppy and problematic to me if Pinterest doesn’t have a way for users to protect their own images from misuse. Can you imagine how long before a photo with someone’s face in it is misused? Or before someone will fraudulently claim they designed something in a stolen photo or series of photos from the true designer? It would cause an uproar…. Since I haven’t heard about a Pinterest uproar yet, maybe there is a way to get the misuse of your image taken down from there.

Ive never seen anything of mine pinned on pinterest. But if I saw my ring pinned with an inproper description Id probably be peeved too.

I googled it and apparently Pinterest does have a feature meant for you to use in a case like this. Somewhere pretty obvious it should have to option to “Report Pin.”

@heathuhhhhwebbbb:  Are you using any kind of photo filters that might be altering the colouring of your ring?  Maybe that’s causing the confusion?
