I’m sorry it’s none of my business but I have to ask.. why are you passing it off as one?? How much exactly is an equivalent 2.58 carat diamond with similar specs to yours?  Can you afford it with your lifestyle? 

I’m not opposed to you doing what you do.  More power to you and your decision.  But in essence you decided to lie by omission.  Now the best lies are grounded in truth so if you want your lie to pass, there must be some truth to make it solid. 

My aunt is a rich and she has her own import company, large house, fancy cars, etc.  No one blinks an eye at her bling.  But then next to her 50k hermes bag, what’s a 5ct ring anyway?  Those rings she wears are high end czs And her real one are only brought out on charity ddinner and such.  But still her history, her reputation supports a 5 CT ring.  

I don’t care how believable it is to the naked eye, but if you have no history at all to back up your lie people will question it.  People can be harsh but people who know you and your lifestyle will know whether or not you could afford this.  For strangers I think the Amora Gem will pass off quite well.

Many people who have diamonds are able to tell that the Amora looks different, it’s just something about the structure. Furthermore, as moissanites and Amoras have become very popular, people who pay attention to rings are likely to know about them and unless you truly look like you can afford a diamond of the same size, they’re going to assume that it’s not a diamond.

Since I know the price of a 2.5 ct decent diamond, I would probably know it was not real 😉  even a really nice 1.25 (with very nice specs) will run over 10k, not includng the setting. Secondly, I suppose an amora would resemble a diamond…I have not seen one in real life. Moissanite does not, especially at larger sizes. If I saw a 1 ct Amora, I would probably think “nice stone (at a quick glance).

I can spot an AG quicker than a moissy but they’re both quite beautiful stones. They look LIKE diamonds but there are differences (IMO) in the colors they flash. I doubt anyone is going to quiz you on it and if they grab your hand and examine it, they won’t have any concrete proof but they don’t pass to my eye.

I have a diamond and I can usually spot an AG. its better than moissanite in terms of looking like a diamond, but in larger sizes I can definitely tell.

SallySa:  Yep I can definitely tell it’s not a diamond. Looks like you’ll have to wear your ring with everyone knowing it’s an amora gem.

SallySa:  You posted the same question on the BTD forum and here is my answer to you:

The AG absolutely looks like a diamond to the naked eye and even to the trained eye with a loupe and a tester. I recently had my ring re-sized and the AG kept testing as a diamond on the diamond/moissy testers in the store and at their bench. They examined that stone very closely. I was all but accused of lying about what it was  However, the number one thing most likely to give away that this is not a diamond is the size/quality of the stone to income ratio. Strangers and acquaintances will never now but friends and family will make a very educated guess.

I have a 2.02 ct E IF AG ultra which, if it were a diamond with similar specs, would have cost the money saved for my three kids university tuition. I’m open about what I have because I love it and think it’s a super option! Having said that, I usually only offer a correction when someone mentions/asks about my “diamond.” If someone says “nice ring” I say thanks and move on.

I got an enhanced mossy stand in ring a few weeks ago thats same size as my diamond ring. Of course I had to rock it out and about.  It’s a beautiful stone, but having them side by side I can pick out a moissy Easy now. 

if I saw any of my friends with a 2.5 ring on their finger I’d assume it were a diamond alternative. Would I ask?  Hell no. But none of my friends SO could afford that unless they didn’t spend a dime of their salary for a year and sold their bodies on the BLVD.

As long as you own up to what it is, rock it for what it is. But if you really want a diamond in your heart of hearts I’d serioisly consider 1) waiting until you can afford it 2) get a smaller diamond  on your budget and upgrade down the road.

I would love to see a pic!! Also I know plenty of people who were gifted diamonds from relatives so the size does not reflect Income In all cases. Before the Bee I just assumed they were diamonds now I wonder if maybe they were not. Either way it’s none of my business I never questioned them. I do not believe in saying “my diamond” if it’s not but you can say stone. My stone is 2.whatever F si2. Most of the time that discription people will automatically think it’s a diamond. I would not say it’s a diamond if it’s not you can use creative wording without lying

it’s very diamond like if it’s a size that you can afford in a diamond.  In my opinion the amora gem looks more like a diamond in person than in pictures. But to answer your question, yes it looks like a diamond to the untrained eye.

Not sure if you have seen this video but it may help

I honestly think 99.9% of people will look at it and assume it’s a diamond. Unless they are an AG dealer and have worked with the AG up close those would be able to spot it;). Just my opinIon;)

These threads are so annoying.

Take your Amora Gem to a jeweler and compare it with a diamond. 

It’s not a diamond. It won’t look 100% like a diamond.
