I was checking out BTD to perve at the Avarra sapphires and emeralds when I saw this..
Amora Krupps… it’s the only other gem other than moissanite that is tempting me to abandon my coloured gemstones. I can’t wait until they make them available.

It’s like an Octagon/Emerald/Radiant hybrid, the name is odd, reminds me of the coffee products company Krups. It’s a little warm for my taste but I’m weird so don’t mind me.

@nineteen87: The Amora Gem is going to be an F. Not really “warm” by anyones standards.
Indeed the fact it is such a high colour is the reason I am not that worried about waiting for Amora Gem (I have unenhanced OECs but they will be cuttiing OECs in the Amora Gem) as it is too white/colourless for me.
Generally though a an F in a step cut lile a Krupps is very wanted!
OP, yes there are many pleased people over on the Better Than Diamond forums! A bit os a surprise that it made the list as one of the initial offerings!

@nineteen87: Lol it is a strange name isn’t it? I wonder where the origin of that name is from.
@RayKay: It is a suprise considering that it’s not usually part of the repertoire of shapes offered by most manufacturers/retailers. Like nineteen87 pointed out, the shape is quite unusual which is one of the reasons that I personally like it.
Oooh OECs.. I recently found out about them and OMCs and Antique Cushions Cuts and they are all sooo pretty. I love the “rawness” of them if that makes any sense. I’ve put my name down the next time BTD does a round of custom cuts for their Avarras and I’m trying to decide on which cut to get since there are so many beautiful options.

@RayKay: Yeah but I am not a fan of rainbow reflections. I wish they made a teal moissy 🙁

I don’t even like square/rectangle cuts, yet this is gorgeous. There is a bee on here who has an emerald cut stone in a yellow gold halo, I think it is the most beautiful ring I’ve ever seen (besides my e-ring, of course ) But that’s what I would get. Swoon <3

I am SO EXCITED! I’ve been hoping they’d offer new cuts. if I ever go for a new e-ring, it will be extremely difficult for me to choose between the asscher and the princess cuts.

i’m absolutely DYING waiting for the amora H&A cut. all of the cuts look so absolutely amazing, including the Krupps.
I’m really torn as to what to get for my center stone (which should be ordered in a few weeks!!!!!!!!!)- do i get an Amora Moissanite now, or do I go with an Asha while I wait for the Amora gem to be available. AHHHHHHHHHH.

@Miss Circe: I think it’s a reproduction cut of the Krupp diamond aka the Taylor-Burton diamond. The Krupps are a family of German industrialists.

Oh my lord, I may have to get a RHR with this. I love step cuts and this looks freaking amazing.

Oh, man, they’re all so gorgeous. It’s getting really tough to decide…can I just get one of each cut?
