If you like the way it looks with your naked eye, then keep it.  They are both perfectly acceptable and BOTH have a lot of marketing attached to get you to buy their product.   I believe Schubach’s uses FB in their jewelry with no problems.

Hrm, I’m very interested in this.  I’ve been researching moissanite for a while now and have only heard of amora moissanite to whiten moissys, but not forever brilliant (just looked this up).

from what i have heard it isn’t a coating, but something about their heat process to whiten the stones causes the scorching on some stones. as long as you love it i wouldn’t stress over it. i have an amora personally, but would have loved any moissy. if you aren’t happy with the color that would be the only reason to regret your purchase.

also i haven’t seen too many pics of the FB moissy, would love it if you posted some!

If you love your stone, that is all that matters!

I am ordering FB in a fancy shape to see how it looks. I will get the goldsmith to scope it, to make sure it is not structurally damaged as some of the reports suggest. A lot of things I’ve read are just two companies at each other throats. I honestly would love it if there was a 3rd party that was not involved in all the accusations and just sold a great product 🙂 I’ll let you know what I think once I get it.

From C&Cs Facebook: 

FOREVER BRILLIANT and Amora Enhanced are very different. 

FOREVER BRILLIANT gemstones use a proprietary process that improves the color and brilliance of moissanite without any residual negative effects potentially seen with HTHP treatments. 

The Amora process is a HPHT technique (High Pressure/High Temperature). We are concerned that such processes are temporary and in the long term could lessen the durability and value of our moissanite gemstones. Accordingly, any third party alterations or treatments void the Charles & Colvard Limited Lifetime Warranty that accompanies each consumer moissanite purchase.
