Not sure if it’s been mentioned here yet but I was looking at the Better Than Diamond website and I saw an update from three days ago! In case anyone’s also waiting with bated breath, I thought I’d share – sharing is caring. 😀
I think the clarity premium is SO worth it! $50 extra for IF clarity? Done!
“/5/13: Update – Production and sales of the Amora GEM is underway and we are working through the 9mm and 8.5mm (3.00ct and 2.50ct) waiting list. We are contacting those customers in *non-patent blocked* countries in order of their entry on the waiting list who are listed for 9mm and 8.50mm rounds.
We are seeing a spread of clarity grades from VS2 – VVS1 – Internally Flawless (!). As a result, pricing will be tiered with VS as the base price, VVS with a $25/ct premium, and Internally Flawless with a $50/ct premium.
For comparison – a 3.00ct F/IF Ideal cut diamond on BlueNile.com is listed for $148,340 vs. $1947 for an F/IF Amora GEM, with H&A cutting, 10% more brilliance and 200% more fire than the equivalent F/IF diamond.”

@hushbee1: *sigh* I am! But I live in Canada so it’s going to take the longest…but we’re not engaged yet, so we have time. Hopefully it’ll be available by the time we’re ready!
We both have family in New Zealand though, so if need be, we may be able to have it shipped there…

@Pisces: That’s good because you won’t have to upgrade! I probably will eventually because we already bought a forever brilliant (not engaged yet) but I will be stalking the boards. I’m really curious because the brilliance is supposed to be 10% higher than moissanite and I think that would help balance out the fire, which I love. Lucky you have family in a place that will have them sooner! What size did you order?

It seems there are some of the larger sizes in stock – have any of you guys bought one of these yet? I can’t wait until some more pictures are out!
I’ve been lurking, and finally decided to speak up and ask!
