Jeweler selling man made nuggets on facebook. He is not misrepresenting them but they could then be passed off as real to some sucker. He states made with 9crt gold so not telling lies there either. I don't think this is really something a jeweller should be doing though.Man made nugget on facebook Screen10

Well, to be fair... he's honest about it. He's clearly described it as a man-made nugget and that it's 9ct.

The only downside is that this isn't entirely described as such in the title. It's a good size for a pendant (not too small). Since he describes that it's manmade there's not much else you can do. There's another Ebay seller who sells solid silver Great White Shark teeth which remind me of the same process. They're cast from a real tooth and have a considerable size and weight to them. However, it does get confusing when you make replica nuggets out of 9ct gold.

Nero, he is honest in his add. What worries me is down the track it could be sold snd passed as real nugget by next seller.

Only the buyer who tries to resell/pass it off as something that it is not, is the one who commits perjury/fraud.
Ebay, like all businesses is there to make money & as long as an Item for sale is advertised/described legitimately, one can try selling/advertising a rock from their back yard, if they believe they can make money from it.
If there's a market of demand for such & the Item/s for sale is/are described legitimately, Ebay ain't going to stop you from making money. Its a win/win  Shocked  Q35

I can see where everyone is coming from. It would be different if it had 9ct gold stamped on it somewhere. But the ad does not indicate that ??

You got a good point there Bill. The stamping of ct number on a pendant, would most likely be stamped on the link itself, but that could relate to the carat composition of the link only as being 9ct. The actual gold content of the nugget itself might differ. Which ever way one looks at it, he has described the man made nugget as being of 9ct gold composition. The only way of knowing for certain, what the true gold content/composition consists of, is when the nugget itself undergoes or is put through a chemical composition analysis.
