@patchy: I’ve read that diamonds are cut to maximize the weight.  Moissanite, on the other hand, is cut to maximize the overall beauty. I dont know of any other cut difference. Maybe this is what you’re talking about?

Nice pictures!! Amora wins in terms of clarity and color!! Amora cuts are flatter on top. As you can see from the picture, moissanite have larger surface (table) and lesser crown (the slope thingy that leads to the sharp end of the gem). Amora gem will have the same cut as diamond and hopefully we will be able to buy them in spring 2012. I am now a true moissanite convert.

Yes, the round brilliant cut in moissanite isn’t the greatest, but it looks very pretty in your ring. I can’t wait for the H&A cut to debut.

Very pretty!  I have to say, I prefer the Amore more than the diamond!

gorgeous!!! thanks for sharing. I’ve been thinking  about getting an amora moissy as well. Just wondering what size amora did you get? And what size ring do you wear? I am trying to figure out the right size amora for my finger. thanks.

oh, and by the way, if you have some pictures of your amora moissy and diamond together in different lighting, like sunny, cloudy day, etc, would you PLEASE post those if you have time.  I would loooooove to see the difference in lighting between the two. thanks again.

I’m in love! I don’t have a super need to have a 1carat or higher ring but my dear SO does! lol. we discovered moissys from the BEE and I had to join and get in on the conversation. I am so so in love with the moissanite! To me… i know there is a stigma and all of that, but they really are beautiful in their own right. I created a cart with like 5 rings on moco.com and told him just choose one that you love bc i love them all.

 

it’s a great “alternative” and completely affordable and reasonable for our lifestyle. we simply don’t have the means to spend 5-10k, we can spend 1-2k to get the same “look” And all that matters is how it feels to YOU and how much YOU love it. but your new moissy is just gorgeous! ๐Ÿ™‚
