I just picked up my 6x6mm cushion cut loose Amora. I was bracing myself for the unexpected…and was disappointed. Online, it lists a color of “I” for this size/cut, yet the verification sheet provided shows that the stone is a “J”…and sadly, it looks it! I have seen so much GORGEOUS moissy porn here, but the color was worse than what I expected (I know it’s not going to be a colorless stone, but this has more yellow than I’ve seen in real life for any comparable stone, moissanite, diamond or otherwise). Naturally, I reached out to their customer service (moissaniteco) and am waiting for a response. But help me out, Bees! Are you all tricking me with your beautiful pictures??

You may have just gotten a dud? I have a round brilliant, which to my knowledge, faces up the whitest of all the cuts. Do you have a picture of yours? I know mine will sometimes still show some color when the weather is bad, but I love that about it! I have never seen a cushion moissy so I’m not sure what I would expect! I’m sorry youre not happy and I’m sure MoissaniteCo will assist you in fixing the situations! 🙁

I haven’t done any photoshop or anything to my photos. But mine’s a round brilliant cut, which, as others have stated, appears whiter over all. I can’t say mine looks blindingly white all the time. If it’s in yellow lighting it can look yellow. It picks up the colors of what’s around it. But I have never seen it be yellow or green on its own.
Another thing to keep in mind is the setting. I can’t stress this enough. Setting can make a difference to what color a moissy appears. It might not look as bad once you set it in a white metal. But for the time being, calling the company and seeing if they can replace it with a stone verified to be an “I” isn’t unreasonable as it was advertised as such on their site. I didn’t deal with them at all. I got my ring from a jeweler who specializes in moissy. I suspect he handpicks the nicer stones for his works. He also utilizes the setting/white gold alloy to enhance the whiteness somehow.

Oh no 🙁 I would deffintly conttact Moissyco, and see if maybe you just got a dud! I have a .75 unenhanced RB and it a little on the warmer side, but with the Amora I would hope for a much whiter color!! Best of luck and I agree with @pfinarffle: once you get it set into a white metal it will look whiter! If you lay it dirrectly against your skin it will pick up colors (I’m olive colvered and mine deffintly lookds different on my skin than in its setting) Best of luck!!

Oh no 🙁 I hate to hear that since I love love love my moissanite. I’ve heard MoissaniteCo’s customer service is great, so I’m sure they’ll correct the situation to make you happy. I have a round brilliant moissanite and all of the pictures I’ve posted on here have been accurate as to the whiteness of the stone. Sometimes it looks even whiter in person than it ends up looking in a picture! I hope you work it out and keep us posted!
BTW, did you happen to take any pictures of your stone?

I’ve heard that certain cuts appear to have much more of a color disparity (there is a long post about a cushion cut somewhere on here that I also posted on). Apparently they all have a GIA? color of J just because of the cut of the stone, which moissaniteco changed on their website.
Mine is a 1.5k equivalent round cut, and I really don’t see much of a color difference. In certain lighting it might have a slight color sheen to it, but no one else has been able to notice that it is a moissanite (not even a jewler without a microscope). I’ve also heard, like @pfinarffle: said, that once it is set it might appear whiter. If it bothers you a lot and you’re willing to change the cut, you might want to try that. :

Hm…I’d have to agree and suggest that maybe it was just a dud stone? My Moissy came today and although it is amora and round brilliant, it is also set in yellow gold which supposedly brings out the warmth of it, but I am very impressed by its whiteness. I catch some warmth in certin lights, but after going into a few jewelers today and comparing it to diamonds I was assured that the same warmth is seen in a diamond, too. I would recommend doing what you’ve already done and contacting moissyco, specially since they do have great customer servcie. So sounds like you’re on top of it. (: I hope this gets worked out and you have your dream ring soon!!

@Merlisea: I think it was actually the same OP for other thread you are talking about.
BTD does the Amora enhancement. On their website, it lists cushion cuts at J color.

When I first got my Amora I was a little disappointed with the colour in certain lighting but now I don’t notice it AT ALL. Definitely keep in contact with them but give it a chance too. No one else noticed the buttery tinge in certain lighting and now I don’t either (: I’ll post a picture of my ring looking yellowy so you can see it at it’s worst haha 😉 I think I had way higher expectations because of all the white Moissys I had seen online. Mine is almost always white or near colourless as it’s supposed to be, but occasionally in my room or the car on overcast days it will look buttery (as I said before though, I don’t notice it at all now that I accepted it and got used to it)
My 7mm Amora round almost always looks like this:
I really hope this helps! Keep in mind that round does face up a little whiter than cusion (mine is graded as H).

@MrsBlueSeptember: Ohh I see! I didn’t realize that they changed that with the Amora 🙂 Thanks for the info!

P.S. @sugarpea: Your ring is GORGEOUS! The stone reminds me of mine a lot, and mine only has that certain warm tone to it when there are warm tones around as well 🙂
