When purchasing from an unknown dealer, without much buyer protection in place, be prepared to spend an amount you’re prepared to risk losing. I ordered a zircon from a dealer on eBay recently, but it was only $25. If for some reason, I got a dud, I would not lose sleep over the purchase. However, I prefer eBay purchases over buying blindly off Instagram. There are many wonderful dealers on Instagram, but I’m not happy with the protections in place. I think eBay and Etsy offer better purchasing platforms for consumer protection.
