@madhrinko:  I think size and cut have a lot to do with the color as well.  I have a 6mm RB

I have an enhanced RB and it is still warm sometimes. If you want to avoid warm, I wouldn’t go with moissy.

ive got enhanced moissy and I’ve heard SOME amoras aren’t that much whiter. If you don’t want any warmth at all OP, don’t do moissy.

It also depends on when you want/need your ring by – a lot of us are waiting for the Amora gem to finally be released and allowed to be sold in our countries!  It’s not the same as an Amora-enhanced moissanite – it’s also a type of silicon carbide but it’s supposed to be equivalent to an F in colour and they are cut in Ideal (hearts & arrows) shape.  Because Charles & Covard has a patent on silicon carbide stones in most developed and/or larger countries, it can’t be sold in those places until 2015/2016.  Sigh!

I have a Moissy in the house but it’s not on my finger yet so unfortunately no pictures. Amora is just certified to be about as white as an ‘H’ diamond in all carats and situations. Where with Forever Brilliant, or unenhanaced moissys it depends on the size, cut, and lighting as to how much warmth your stone shows.

If you aren’t THAT sensitive to color (can’t tell much difference between D-E-F diamonds), then get a 1-1.25 or smaller FB round stone set in white gold/palladium/platinum. Or if you’re super concerned, order a loose stone from them to see if it’s right for you.
