shawny92:  if your worried about it being too white then I’d go with a G color if possible. I have a round G Vs1 amora gem ultra and I’ve never noticed any milkiness in my stone in person. However, I have noticed that every once in a while it will appear slightly foggy in some pictures, but not often. I’m assuming you don’t want a round hearts and arrows amora gem, so my next choice would be the cushion. They also have the hearts and arrows pattern that the rounds have, but of course in a cushion shape. As for the asscher cuts, though beautiful there is something different about the way they are cut that they don’t look like an asscher cut diamond. But if your not going to be passing it off as a diamond then that doesn’t matter. My stone measures just under 8mm, so I think a 7mm stone is a great size.

Here’s a pic of my stone looking a little milky. It didn’t look this way in real life.

And here’s how it normally looks

Before I bought my AG, I read up on everything I could about milkiness, and didn’t find anything that convinced me that it was a real problem, as all of the pictures/testimonials I saw were nothing but positive. If you’re concerned, I would just go down a few color grades, as MrsSparkleBee recommended — i.e. avoid the D colors which are very white.

I don’t have it set yet, but here’s pictures of my 1.8 carat 7.27×7.25 cushion amora gem on my 6.75 finger with the disclaimer that I took them on my iphone, so the picture quality is quite bad. You can see in the second picture how it looks “milky” but it’s actually just that my iphone can’t focus very crisply up close πŸ™‚ Hope this helps!

shawny92:  I know what you mean! But I promise there is absolutely no milkiness. I’ve actually had two amora gems, the first one was a 1.21 carat F IF, and I ended up returning it because it was such a bright white that it almost had a blueish ting, similar to cz. I also didn’t care for how the arrows were extremely pronounced in this particular stone. I’m starting to think that maybe it was a dude because I’ve seen otyer F IF amora that look beautiful, this one looked plastic. But there was absolutely milkiness in that stone either in real life, only pictures.

But if you end up getting a stone you don’t like, do not give up. Just send it back and order another. All amora gems do not look the same. Goodluck to you!

shawny92:  Trust me I was where you were about 3 months ago. I was set on Moissanite and then discovered the beautiful colorless Amora gem and knew this is what I wanted. Being concern about color with moissy I wanted to be sure the AG was as perfect as described. It seemed to me most of those too white and milky comments were older or earlier batches of stones and the latest have had no complaints. So I told my Fiance this was it and no turning back. I’m glad I made my decision because it’s a gorgeous stone and I get compliments daily. The statement “Too white” is a personal opinion I think. I never thought “man this is too white” lol! I have a 1.28 IF E color AG with an F color diamond halo.

 

Here’s a few photos along with a insta video link. Hope this helps 😊

MrsSparkleBee13:  πŸ™‚ thanks!! I was never a halo fan until I saw your ring…the plain shank frames the halo so perfectly!

shawny92:  My AG is E, IF, and amazing! OEC cut, never seen it look “milky”, but the ring can be so hard to photograph! 

I think the size for split shank will depend on your finger size! 7mm is respectable pretty much no matter what, but it’s going to depend on your tastes. 

The asscher cuts I’ve seen are AMAZEBALLS, seriously. I’ve NEVER been a step cut girl, but there is this asscher AG in a double clawed prong setting from Wink floating around here that I’d wear any day of the week. If you want a little more sparkle though, go with the cushion.

I just received my Amora cushion gem today and it is beautiful!! I returned my moissanite FB because it was just too warm for me.  My stone is 2.08 F SI1 7.75 x 7.75. πŸ™‚  I am having David Klass set it in a custome setting. Tooo excited! I hope these pics help you

I havent had any significant issues with my AG. The only thing that annoys me from time to time is that in certain lighting, my ring can appear dark in the center, as if it were cut too deep. Doesnt happen all the time, but enough for me to notice. Otherwise been very pleased and I have an  F/VS2.
