@roroibrahime1:  Hi! I think it looks a bit too white. More like a white diamond rather than colourless diamond. I like the first picture the best , I think the cut on the stone is beautiful too.

@roroibrahime1:  What a lovely ring! It really suits your hand.

I don’t consider myself a diamond expert but I must say it doesn’t look exactly like a diamond to me, there is a milkiness about it that doesn’t look diamond like to me.

Are you trying to pass it off as a diamond?

Because in that case it depends wether people would believe that you could spend about 35 thousand dollars on a diamond. 

In that case no one should notice because no one really looks at your ring that close up.

@roroibrahime1:  I agree with PP’s – it doesn’t look like a diamond. Most people don’t try to pass off Moissy as diamond on this board, so tread lightly – the word “real” or “fake” can get you in a lot of trouble.

If you are trying to pass it off as a diamond be wary, a 2ct internally flawless diamond will cost you $50-80,000, is it believable that you could afford that?

 

 

Also, WELCOME to the Hive!

@roroibrahime1:  It is a beautiful stone with a beautiful cut, but from what I have seen in the pics and videos so far, I prefer FB Moissanite myself because it has more fire. It seems there is a trade off between this blindingly white colour and fire (coloured light return). FB Moissy would be a slightly warmer looking stone but in a smaller size it is passable as a diamond in my view.

@roroibrahime1:  Yeah, I think Amora Moissy will be more fiery. Share the pics again when you get it!

If you’re buying a stone just for looking like a diamond and not because you love the stone in itself, maybe get a CZ. Moissanites and Amoras are beautiful stones in their own right and should be treated as such. If you don’t have a diamond and have a beautiful other stone, own it! So what that it’s not a diamond? I am one of those who feel you shouldn’t try to pass it off as a diamond if it’s not.

@roroibrahime1:  So, are you going to keep it as is, or change it to a diamond later..? Im a litle puzzled.

Also, I got those prices from James Allen – they are the cheapest reputable diamonds Ive found online. Too much cheaper and I would be very very wary of filling, treatments, false or disreputable reports and the like. Must keep the wits about oneself when diamond buying, so many scummy sellers Undecided

@roroibrahime1:  If you want to pass your ring off as a diamond ring, Amora moissanite is NOT going to look like a diamond more than the Amora gem will. I think the Amora moissy will have more fire and flashes of colour than a diamond will. Many Bees n this board say they can instantly tell the difference between moissanite and diamond – so you just need to be aware of that.

Amora moissanite, FB moissanite, unenhanced moissanite and Amora gem are all beautiful forever stones in their own right, but none of them look exactly like diamond. If you want a stone that looks like a diamond, you will need to get a diamond or well cut CZ (which are stunning but prone to going cloudy over time.)

Another option (which you may not like) is to get a smaller sized Amora gem. I recently received by Amora H&A in 7mm andI think it looks plenty like a diamond. (I have a diamond in my enagement ring which i wear on my left hand). My Amora gem is super sparkly and white and to me looks very much like a diamond. I love it to bits!

Out of curiosity: do you see any milkiness in your Amora gem? In some of the photos you took, the Amora gem looks slightly milky. Is this because of the photography or do you see it too when you look at it? (Not meaning to be rude at all, but I was just wondering if it was the angle of the camera when you took the photo.)

All that being said, I really like the way the Amora gem you chose looks on your finger. Its lovely!!

Do let us know what you decide in the end………

Honestly I wouldn’t think it was a diamond if I saw your ring in real life, it looks like a cloudy cz (but that might be the lighting, and I’m not trying to offend you just giving my honest opinon since you asked).  I have seen some extremely low quality diamonds that look like that though, so maybe?  It wouldn’t be my first guess.  The photos in the sunlight look gorgeous though.  I agree with the above posters that it looks like it could be a “white” diamond, but I wouldn’t guess that’s what it was IRL since I’ve never seen one in person and they seem to be extremely uncommon. If you do exchange it I think you should get a forever brilliant moissanite since I’ve heard the Amoras aren’t cut as well as the forever brilliants (and in the photos on the bee the Amoras look yellow or greenish while the forever brilliant ones always seem to look pretty good).

Aside from the milkiness and a bit irridescence, it looks like a diamond to me in most shots. I’m not sure if I’m making too many allowances for camera quality though. The first one without flash looks like mine. 2+ carat GIA Triple Ex VS1 H. My eye isn’t terribly discerning though and I’ve never seen any of these other stones (Moissy, Amora, etc) in person…I don’t think lol.
