I agree with the others….take it to a jeweler and get it confirmed asap…that way there is no question.  Sorry, this stinks….let us know what happens!!

@SaugaBride:  That’s terrible.  Please let us know what happens.  If there was a switch, make sure that the seller knows you’re an active member on a wedding forum, and if you have to, you’ll make sure to let the forum know their business should be avoided at all costs!

@SaugaBride:  It actually doesn’t look different to me at all, but we can’t probably tell from the pictures.  Definitely get it tested!!

Definitely take it to a reputable jewelry store to get it tested. Sending good vibes to you!

Stones can look very, very different once in a setting, and the only way to be sure is to have the stone tested.

colored stones sometime look different in a setting because of how they change the ligh penetrating the stone.

@SaugaBride:  I would also suggest if it turns out you’re going to need to dispute with Paypal, I would call and establish a case over the phone so they know exactly what happened and why the values don’t add up.

I highly doubt she switched the stone out. Like PP have pointed out, it will look different in a new setting.

Would it really be worth potentially ruining her reputation (and the business she built.. future earnings etc.) to switch out a moissanite? If this was a diamond or other expensive stone I might get her motivation… but if she could only sell it for a few hundred bucks is it really worth the risk?

I think you should definitely get it tested, but before you launch any kind of legal (or even bad review) action against her, you need to be sure.

I agree with others… First step is to have it tested by a jeweler. Its hard to tell in the pics. If its not moissanite, than Id be on the phone with paypal to start a claim. And off to court to sue for the cost of your stone!

Hi there! I am sorry you are going through this..i totally get it, as i was convinced for a while that my diamond was swapped uot for a lesser quality sone (it wasn’t) after one of me many re-sets.

 

I am not too familiar with the composition of moissanites, but i do know that some stones will react with a change in color or clarity, when heat is applied. If you had a ring set, or re-sized even, and heat was applied directly to a stone not meant to take it, then changes could occur! 

 

Of course check with your jeweler, but just a thought.

@SaugaBride:  paypal favours the buyer usually so request a refund and the money will be held by paypal until it is resolved.  If it works out you you can always pay her again.
