No judging!! I have a 1.25 FB and it definitely has a lot of color.  I would wait for an Amora if I were you.

@Ninteenthchance:  I honestly think that the only thing besides a diamond that can pass for a diamond is an Asha. That does not look like a diamond in the least, and I think if you want to pass it off as one you should order one that is much smaller.

Given the lighting and how it appears on my monitor, it doesn’t look like a real diamond to me.  Sorry!  It’s a beautiful stone in it’s own right!

@Ninteenthchance:  Very pretty stone, but no, I do not think that it will pass for a diamond. The cut and color in your photos do not reflect a diamond to me. Sorry.

I mean, technically, there are large segments of the population that purposefully seek out “warm” diamonds so if you’re asking if it’s warmth lends itself to not appearing “diamond-like” then I’d have to say that’s not applicable. To the untrained eye it will look like a diamond and for someone familiar with the stone, they’ll probably notice. Now, the FB moissanite I ordered and returned didn’t exhibit nearly that level of color reflection and this was after testing it in multiple lighting environments both indoors and outdoors. It was brighter and whiter than your last pic almost at all times. 

That being said, I’d probably return the one you currently have and get either the Amora or another FB that performs better.

Hard to tell if it’s “passable” in the pics.  My 2ctw/8mm (I think 8mm) FB is very passable but close up next to a diamond solitare it’s obvious that it has more “color” (not buttery as other bees have mentioned) and it is a diff shape then diamond rounds- more table/flat topped.  But then how often are you going to be hand-2-hand with someone w/ a diamond.  I don’t “pass” mine, but I also don’t correct people who think/say it is a diamond.  It’s pretty large (I have size 5 fingers) and I wonder if others question how we could afford such a big ‘diamond’ or why we would spend approx. (similar style band and G diamond) on Bluenile) $15k on a ring.

I think the combination of the warm color, the non-diamond-ideal cut, and ESPECIALLY the size makes it unable to pass as a diamond. That’s a $60,000 diamond you’re talking about!!

If your goal is for it to “pass” wait for Amora.  I believe they (mossyco) are in and sending them to ppl on the wait list.  

Here’s some shots upclose of mine 2ctw FB.  

Passable from afar- yes, passable upclose- nope

@Ninteenthchance:  that is a very pretty stone! But I’ll be honest, it looks nothing like a diamond. Too much color. I agree with @claireos:   Your stone is much more colorful than other FB moissys I’ve seen on here; that compared with the size makes it pretty unbelievable. Do I think a Moissy has the potential to pass as a diamond? Possibly, yes. Do I think that that Moissy will pass as a diamond? No way. That doesn’t mean it isn’t pretty though! It’s beautiful in its own right!

Compare to the whiteness of these diamon solitares:
