anyone else pretty sad they’ve waited this long and yet … still no AVC Amora Gem? :/

BTD is very frustrating.

Something is up with BTD’s production…they keep pushing dates back and everything is sold out. I know someone that has been waiting for oval and or cushion forever….it’s crazy

thank you both!! makes me feel better that others are just as upset. it’s great to vent somewhere  

i do wonder what’s up with BTD. at the very least, why can’t they send mass email updates once a month to those that signed up for notifications? or update their product pages. it’s such bad business to leave up “ready by March!” when it’s practically june. 

sequinhat:  I can’t wait to see your gorgeous diamond! 🙂

There’s a recent (undated, tho) update on the AVC page saying they are “close to offering” it. Hopefully that means they are actually nearing production. I am disappointed in their lack of communication and avoidance of hard dates with ALL of the fancy cuts. I completely understand them wanting to prioritize the H&A cut, but at least let us know what’s going on!

One thing I DID notice, and I think this is what some PP are grumbling about, is that the AG has less internal contrast than the diamond. If you look at both stones’ culets for max darkness, the diamond has facets that match the culet at all times, providing good contrast for the “on” facets. The AG’s darkest, “off” facets, however, are a couple of shades lighter than the culet, making it seem hazy or milky when compared to the “crisp” diamond.

I’m more than happy to accept this performance trade-off if it means I get an AVC stone for 2,000 instead of 20,000!

duchessgummybunns :  I’ve mostly lost my patience with BTD. As you said, it’s due to the lack of communication. They kept saying soon on these – last August. Then it was the new year. Then it was March. I haven’t heard anything since. It’s now August again! I get that they’ll supposedly be amazing and definitely worth the wait, but I worry for the company at this point. it’s taking them soooooo long to do these gems (even round!), that other companies are selling colorless moissanites now in various shapes. I can’t see how BTD can stay in business when they string people along for years. Yes, years. And by now I wonder if the waiting is all for nothing. 

Sorry for the rant! I’m overly passionate..

nifer317 :  Yeah I’m decided it’s not worth the wait. If the internal contrast matched a diaomnd’s…mayyybe. But I’m not going to wait for something with subpar performance, not to mention I prefer elated AVC’s. If they ever come out, great, I’ll try to nab one. But I doubt ithey will. I wonder if GOG would be able to take over prodution if BTD goes under.

PS. I  was also waiting for an AVC Amora and just gave up. Plus, I also prefer the elongated ones.
