The one thing that bums me out is the fact that I would have to wait till after 2015 to buy it. I was planning on getting a moissanite wedding band but after I saw that its like…nope, gottta have it. Maybe upgrade when they’re released? ๐Ÿ™‚ I’m honestly straight up pissed that stupid patents are keeping it from being sold in the US till then.

@lumos: I think somewhere at the bottom of the article they said the patent for Korea was thrown out due to “lack of innovation” so customers in Korea can start buying the moment it is released. Honestly, as soon as they start cutting stones small enough to put in a bar setting wedding band, I think I might start googling Korean vendors. ๐Ÿ™‚ Seriously. I LOVE my diamond. And this is the 1st thing I’ve ever seen that made me think, damn, should have waited. Moissanite is beautiful, but it was more of a backup in case we couldn’t afford a diamond. But the Amora H&A? That’s out of this world. It’s not even a “it would be nice to have an Amora H&A wedding band.” It’s a I NEED an Amora H&A wedding band. It’s spectacular.

@lumos: I’m not an expert on Amora but just had to say you made me crack up… “I think I just got lady wood.” Hahaha

@lumos: Me too. They’d be crazy not to fight to get in earlier. I’m thinking that once they start production on smaller stones I’ll have to look into getting a second RHR. If they can break through those patents sometime next year that would be perfect.

You’d have to have a very trusted friend or family member in one of the non-patent countries.  Better Than Diamond is the only company that is going to be selling them, but customers who live in non-patent countries, such as India, New Zealand, Mexico, etc. can buy them before 2015.  It’s kind of skirting the rules a bit, but if you were planning a trip to Mexcio or something, you could conceivably buy the stone (once it is available) then arrange for it to be sent to the front desk of the hotel once you get there.

meh, I have a moissanite wedding band (2mm stones) and it’s so sparkly, I don’t see how it could possibly dazzle more. 

but for larger stones, it sounds like amora might be worth the wait!

Ok so someone needs to remind future me (if it really does take until 2015, wtf) to buy several of these. Holy cow.

I was like a 5 year old. “oooh sparklyyyyy.”

Anywhere that’s not on the list of patented countries can buy the Amora once it’s released early next year.

List here: http://betterthandiamond.com/pages/Amora-H%26A-%252d-What-countries-will-they-be-sold-in%3F.html

So in Australia, I’m looking at Malaysia, New Zealand or Singapore- but that’s not going to help a lot of you guys!

You can buy it from a country that is patented but the delivery just needs to be somewhere that’s not!

Come on 2012!!

Oh, and yes, they need to size them smaller. I’m thinking .5 and 1 carats at least, if not the other half sizes.
