    Personally I would get an Asha. You can always replace it with an Amora Gem when it comes out. But I am not a big fan of unenhanced moissy – I know some are, but I think it looks olive and gray and dark in the center. Ashas look great, they just aren’t as durable.

    I love my unenhanced Moissy. I’d go that route, then buy an enhanced Amora stone if/when you want to after they restock.

    @Nicole121212:  Tiny bits of yellow in weird lighting, but never green. It’s very white almost all of the time. To even see any yellow, you have to be looking for it. No one else will ever notice, but I spend a lot of time looking at my ring so I have. It doesn’t bother me one bit. I love the personality it has.

    Do you have to have the 1.5?  What about a 1.25 or 2 ct of the amora?

    @Nicole121212:  They are more likely to get a scratch on them than moissy (or diamond.) It kind of depends how hard on them you are.

    @Nicole121212:  Ouch, that sucks!  How long have you been waiting to buy it?  Is it something you can stand to wait another few months? 

    If not I might go with the Forever Brilliant, though honestly I don’t know much about them compared to the amora.  Personally, I like the moissanite over the ashas because I’m really into the sparkle factor.  From what I’ve seen in pictures, you might be able to get by with unenhanced moissanite at 1.25 ct if you don’t mind warmer colors and a slightly smaller stone (I personally would be fine with an H colored diamond because I don’t think I’m that sensitive to color).

    I enjoy my unenhanced moissy. It’s not olive or gray. I’d personally go with something that wouldn’t need to be replaced, or just get a small diamond.

    About the Forever Brilliant moissanite: There is no coating on them. While C&C had a bit of a huge “Oops” and initially released some coated FB stones, the process they currently use is permanent and is not a coating. The process has left some microscopic burn marks on some stones, but both MoissaniteCo and Schubachs sort and send back any damaged stones. So far, everyone I know who has received a FB stone has been very pleased with it. Visually, it is close to if not as good as an Amora. However, it will still show some color, because even after treatment, moissanite has yet to reach anything beyond an “H” in the near colorless category.

    Ashas are not “forever” stones, you will need to replace them every couple years, but they look the most like diamond. If you plan on upgrading to the Amora Gem down the road, having an Asha first would give you a more seamless transition.

    If you are sentimental and wish to keep your stone forever, go ahead and buy the FB. It might not float your boat, and if it doesn’t, don’t sweat it, you know the Asha is right up your alley. =)
