@Mrs_Polymer_Engineer:  You have put together some amazing information.  Plus I can’t wait to see your gem.  I agree with all of your rings.  

MODS:  Please move this to the ring board.

FYI RING BOARD MEMBERS:  I do not think the OP is putting down diamonds but just expressing her own reasons for going with a AG.

@Mrs_Polymer_Engineer:  THIS IS SO EXCITING!

Thank you for sharing with us! I’m so excited to see another AG. Are you in a patent blocked country? What setting did you get? 

@NovaRising:  I have a diamond and wasn’t at all offended by her post, though I can see why this would be a sensitive topic to some. I really wish I didn’t have to pay nearly 5 figures for my diamond, but it’s what I thought looked prettiest to my eyes, and so it is what it is. If the AG has that same white diamond sparkle, I’m on board!

@letigre:  Yeah I’m trying to avoid that 5 figure price tag too.  If the AG is not for me DH will have to pay it and he won’t mind but I sure would.

@Mrs_Polymer_Engineer:  I recently ordered an AG for a right hand ring (as I already have a wedding set) and i love it!

I think you will find it fantastic as a centre stone for your ering. I too am colour sensitive and really love the colourlessness of my AG. (It also goes blindingly white in direct sunlight, but super sparkly at the same time!). I feel like it doesnt have as much rainbow fire as Moissanite, but lots of brilliant white sparkle instead…. if you are ok with that then the AG should be a great fit for you.

So excited for you and cant wait to see more pics of Amora gems in beautiful rings.

Oh yeah, and the sub $2000 price tag was pretty aweseome too. I couldnt justify spending thousands on a RHR, but i really needed sparkly ring with a centrestone of  good size and the AG does that for me. I really like the diamond ring i have my ering especially with my diamond band, but the centrestone is 0.6ct and i needed something a little bigger.

@NovaRising:  I really hope you do like yours when you get a chance to order one. It really is a beautfiful stone. In all honesty, all things considered equal, i would choose diamond over AG. BUT IRL that is not the case. An diamond of comparable specs to my AG would cost $12k so throw that in the mix and i think the AG wins hands down. Are you still on the waiting list for a cushion AG?

@becleeham:  Hey hun!  Haven’t seen you around here in a minute.  Yes, I’m still on the waiting list for my cushion.  I think I signed up pretty soon after the waiting list was released so as soon as they have them ready in my size I should get an email.  Less said they would be ready by the end of Nov but I haven’t heard of anyone saying that they ordered a cushion or a krupps.  Have you?

@Mrs_Polymer_Engineer:  I’m so looking forward to your photos! 

In a few years DH and I are planning to upgrade my center stone(size). When we first got engaged I wanted Moissanite but DH was certain I would regret it(silly man) so we ended up going with a Diamond(which I also love). We went with a smaller stone because I refused to pay huge dollars just to get the finger coverage I want – with the idea to upgrade later should I want too. When I found out about the AG(wasnt out when we got engaged) I was super excited and decided this was going to be my upgrade!

Long story short, I love AG porn lol

@happilyeveraftergirl:  apparently natural emeralds with vivid rich green colour and only minor inclusions are worth more carat for carat than natural diamonds. I’ve read this on a few educational gemstone websites

@becleeham:  I’ve heard the same thing, mostly from investors, and FI and I actually had almost this exact same conversation earlier!

@Mrs_Polymer_Engineer:  Can’t wait to see it!

@SupermansSweetheart:  I did the the same! I have a 0.6ct diamond in my ering with diamond band but went for a 1.25ct Amora gem which gives me much better finger coverage. It’s a bit sad really as I love my ering but it i like the size of the AG better. It’s substantial without being huge and passes for a diamond easily (I do tell some people it’s an Amora gem if they ask about my ring, but I haven’t had any awkard “is it real?” questions yet).

are you planning tio upgrade entire ring or just centre stone?

@Mrs_Polymer_Engineer:  I have a diamond. However, I’m totally intrigued by data. Props on proposing your findings so eloquently. Love it!

@lizzieb:  you’ve heard that emeralds are more expensive than diamonds per carat from investors? I would assume that this would apply to blood red red rubies too? I love emeralds, its my birthstone and i’m planning an emerald/diamond ring project soon however ive heard that emeralds ar enot very good for everyday wear Cry

 @Mrs_Polymer_Engineer:  sorry for hijacking your thread. I love my Amora gem ring and share many of the reasons you listed for getting one. I too, cannot wait to see pics and videos please! I’m sure you’ll love it, the sparkle is amazing!
