Forever brilliant is a regular Moissanite that has been treated to get whiter. 

Amora moissanite has an Amora coating on top moissanite but I’m thinking these might be obsolete soon since amora gem now available. 

Amora gem. Similar to moissnaite but whiter and cut more like a diamond. Better than diamond created it and the patent is close to being lifted so they will be more available to sell  

I have honestly researched all three of these options over and over and over again over the past year. 

If your budget is on the lower and I would do forever brilliant moissanite. they are a little warmer than the Amora gem also has a splintery cut if you are looking at the round. If you have a little more to invest get the Amora gem. If you are looking at the round cut you can get it in hearts and arrows  

 I am ordering my Amora gem ring today;) I wish i had pics but if you search this forum or better than diamond forum you will get a bunch of info.

Forever brilliant moissanite is not enhanced, it’s actually just whiter rough than standard moissanite. Amora moissanite is standard moissanite that betterthandiamond has ” amorized ” to make it whiter with some type of heat treatment.

Yipeebee:  just a couple of corrections to the pp.

Amora moissanite is regular moissanite that has been inspected by Betterthandiamond.com for cut (ensuring you get at least a very good cut) then treated with high pressure and high temperature to whiten the stone by two or three colour grades. Betterthandiamond.com is the company that treats and resells the stones. Betterthandiamond.com also has the stones graded by North American Gem Laboratory so you know what you are paying for un terms of ensuring a good cut and colour.

FB Moissanite used to have a coating a few years ago but now Charles and Colvard are growing whiter rough material. The name FB is reserved for C&C best stones and there is a premium for them. There is also regular moissy which can be hit and miss with respect to cut and colour. Recently, C&C has been offering hearts and Arrows cut FB Moissanite in 1 and 2 ct sizes.

Moissanite is silicon carbide and has over 200 different crystal structures. The Amora Gem is a different crystal structure of Silicon carbide. It naturally grows whiter and is cut in Hearts and arrows. 

I have regular moissanite, Amora enhanced and an Amora Gem Ultra. I’ll post some pictures for you tonight when I get home from work.

Just ordered my Amora Gem Ultra H&A yesterday! Will get here on Monday. The cut and color were what convinced me over moissy. I’ll post pics once it arrives/once SO gets it set 🙂
