Per examination by certified gemologist, the coral in the ring and described in the listing is not coral. The seller refuses returns. The seller's feedback includes negative reviews for fake items
Original review Jan 11, 2017
Az Native American Treasures also known as sedonaturquoisegirls on EBay ( 5050 ) describes itself as a mother/daughter Choctaw team making handmade jewelry in Arizona. They listed a ring on EBay as Coral, described it in the listing as Coral, and in Item Specifics Main Stone: Coral. Having discussed the piece of jewelry with a Native American jewelry dealer, I examined the stone under a lighted magnifying glass and was convinced that it is not coral. It has NO characteristics of coral such as uneven surface and colors and shapes under magnification. I contacted the seller: “This ring just doesn't look like the other coral i have. It is such a bright red and so shiny whereas the other coral i have is much duller. this one almost looks ceramic. i am taking it to a registered gemologist in San Antonio, TX for his opinion. If it is not real coral, I will want to return the item. Just giving you advance notification.” The seller responded : “You can take it to wherever you want but I'm telling you it's coral there's different types of color of coral there's even black coral I am so sorry we don't do refunds” The certified gemologist examined the stone under a microscope and confirmed it as fake. There have been several negative reviews on EBay for this team selling items that are fake. Beware! Read the negative feedback before making a purchase from this seller.
