I probably won’t upgrade my ring for many years. but I am a woman obsessed. I want a 2ct princess cut moissanite SO BAD. but I heard that the reason why moissaniteco does not offer them is because that cut tends to bring out the greenish tinge more.
but now that they have Amora, I’m kind of hoping that will be the answer. does anybody happen to know if they have anything in the works?
also, does anybody here have a (large) princess cut moissanite from a different company?
I see that moissaniteanddiamond.com offers them but I assume they are from the old stock back when they had not perfected the process yet.
I’m kind of playing the IF game here. basically, IF moissaniteco offers a colorless princess cut, then it will be a sign that I should get one 🙂

I mean, moissaniteco.com has square brilliant stones: http://www.moissaniteco.com/moissanite_loose_stones.html
Which I’m not sure is different from a princess cut. They also haVe the amora upgrade for the 1.7 and 2.2 carat equivilant. I’ve seen a lot of amora upgrades on the bee and I LOVE how they look, but I’ve only seen the round brilliant, not the square. Sorry I don’t have personal experience or pics to share!! But I love moissys too and can’t waaaaaaaait to get one!

square brillant is a different cut. what I like about princess is the shape that the light takes inside the ring.
the difference is hard to see in pictures, but really noticeable in real life. square brilliant kind of looks like you took a round brilliant and lopped off the sides. there are too many facets, and too dazzling. the inside of a princess cut has kind of a minimalist, artistic quality. they sparkle just a little less, but I like the aesthetic more.
(I also really love asschers for this reason too)

HMMMM I see…that would make sense since they are calling it a square brilliant. Same stone as the round just squared off lol. I have never seen a larger princess cut in person but I have seen asschers and they are GORGEOUS!!

@janie-janie: I sold my mother’s moissanite 1.8 carat princess/square cut ring on ebay a few months ago and took a video of it on my hand:

As far as I know, moissy do not offer a princess cut. Their equivalent, like you said, is a square brilliant. You would need to speak to C&C or MoissaniteCo to confirm, but I don’t think a princess Moissy doesn’t exist. Correct me if I’m wrong!

better than diamond is developing a princess Amora Gem. It’s going to be a true princess, not like the square brilliant currently available in Moissanite. Idk if you’re familiar w/Amora gem vs. Amora moissanite, but:
Amora moissanite – high pressure high temperature treated Charles & Colvard Moissanite. Some ladies have bought it and it’s beautiful. No princess available, just square brilliant.
Amora Gem – Silicon Carbide like moissanite, but with different structure and no green. Seems like it’ll be superior to moissanite, whenever the hell it’s available.
Amora Gem’s supposed to go on sale in some countries this summer. It’s not going to be available everywhere because of patent issues. The US is a banned country, but I’m sure the ladies on the Better Than Diamond forums will find some way to get their little hands on some stones. Mail forwarding services, other loopholes I’m sure will be found.
