Yes honestly I wouldn’t be concerned with if others will think your AG is a fake diamond. It shouldn’t really matter. If it’s a stone you and your fiance picked and he proposes with it then it really doesn’t matter if there will be signs. It’s an AG not a diamond, of course there will be signs. When someone sees your ring and if they don’t immediately think “there’s no way they could afford that” then they probably wouldn’t know the difference. If someone wears a 2.5 ct ring and their fiance works part-time at mcdonals they probably would think, “hmmm that’s probably fake.” But at the end of the day it shouldn’t really matter.

My fiance and I picked the AG not so that everyone would think I have a huge flashy diamond and if someone asks me about it I’ll tell them its an AG because I don’t owe anyone anything. I picked what I wanted and that’s all that matters. Why are you so concerned with it?

Once solitaires cross the 2 carat threshold, I pretty much always figure they’re fake. It does depend on the person and the environment. 

IMO the cut of an Amora gem gives it away as not a diamond – the H&A are overly defined. I haven’t seen one in person, but that’s how I can tell in photos. 

The asscher AG looks almost bizarre…

leilarobs2:  I am just curious, what is it about the AG that tips you off that it is not a diamond? I can tell moissanite apart from diamond, but I have never seen the AG in person so I don’t have that experience. 

Seeing as I am pretty obsessed with rings, even my husband can tell moissanite apart from diamond on youtube videos now lol. I am impressed with his observation skills!

I have diamonds and I’m sure some ppl assume they’re fake. I wouldn’t worry about this. If it really bothers you, save for /buy a diamond eternity band and wear that until you can get genuine solitaire that you like.

 

FWIW, I don’t think there’s a hard correlation between income/class/age and whether jewelry is natural or simulant. I’ve seen a bit of evertyhing on everyone. HTH!

girlseeksring:  Yeah that asscher seems off in the photos too–nothing like in real life.  I felt bad for Wink, the bench, because he took that photo.

Correct me if i’m wrong ladies, but in my experience most people have never heard of an amora gem. Maybe that’s been my experience because I live in a smaller city but honestly half the jewelers around here think i’m talking about a moissy when i mention an amora gem.

OP: I don’t think the general public could easily distinguish an amora from a diamond. The 2 visual giveaways to me are that they are “too perfectly cut” and can look too white in some lighting. But again, that’s not really something the general public would notice.

I do, however, 100% agree that the size of the stone compared to people’s opinion of how wealthy you are is the #1 giveaway.

Also, just a thought – amora gems are so interesting in origin and are really quire rare still, please try to enjoy that! People love hearing the story behind them! Besides, I’m pretty sure if someone does realize it’s not a diamond, their natural reaction will be to assume that it’s a $30 CZ from walmart. You are better off saying it’s an Amora if their opinon is of value to you.

I think they pass for the vast majority of people.  I have a 2 ct AG and many people have commented on it but no one has questioned it.  The jewelers where I bought my setting can tell as I see them examine it closely when I take it in for cleaning, but most people don’t seem to know or care. 

Depends where you live too.

lilsweetie:  the pastel flashes are not typically what u see in a diamond. Something about the colors are different and AG “hazes”, especially in pics. That said, u won’t look at it and say that’s not a diamond because u don’t ALWAYS see the flashes or the haze.

This entire thread has made me want to get an Amora Gem. Even though I have diamonds, I’m not a diamond snob – I like them both for what they are. I really just don’t think it’s that serious.

This guy’s review: http://www.prosumerdiamonds.com/reviews/amora-gem-review/. I like his perspective as a diamond person.

I want an OEC but they’re so huge right now, they are all over 3.5 cts and that is just so much more than I would need for any project I’m imagining. It will take a major act of will for me not to purchase a reasonably sized Amora OEC if I come across one…*takes off to check the bistro*

SallySa:  while I am not forsure if I could tell the difference, I don’t think it matters. I have a yellow 1ct diamond and people don’t believe it’s real bc 1) Yellow diamonds DON’T exist. ( I’ve been told that a number of times) or 2) it’s too big it’s a cz ( told that a number of times as well) 

Some people will just believe your ring is fake or real… no matter what.

If you want something that looks like a diamond, and acts like a diamond, then get a diamond (especially if it’s within your price range to get the size diamond that you really want).  Don’t specifically get something to try and pass it off.  I have a 7.5mm unenhanced moissy (two of them actually).  They’re both bright white, beautifuly cut, and look absolutely amazing.  Do they look like diamonds?  Noooope.  Because they’re not diamonds.  they perform and behave differently (which I love).  And on a personal note, I would never ever let someone believe my stone is something it’s not (I’m the girl who says “It’s NOT a diamond, it’s a moissanite!!!!” the second anyone compliments my ring or asks about it).  Be proud of what you have.
