You should return it; it is because it has a bad cut. Google Nailhead or Fisheye in diamonds. The cause is the same for Amora gems.

My G Vs1 amora gem ultra doesn’t do that at all. However I use to another amora gem ultra that was a complete dud and very dark in the center. I’d send it back and try again.

What I’m curious to know is why these known duds are sent out in the first place? It just seems like bad business to let such a bad fisheye go through quality control, given the amount of online interest in these stones (increasing the chances of posts like this one being put up and viewed by many) and the fact that the marketing for the AG is very focused on what a superior stone it is, with exceptional, diamond-like cut and color.

I would exchange it. When a diamond goes dark like that it’s a sign of a poor cut. I have I 1 ct excellent (near ideal) cut diamond and it never shows dark like that.

Here’s a comparison of the first amora gem ultra I bought last year it was a F color and IF clarity. It had super dark arrows and a dark center, almost appeared blue in some lighting, and looked like plastic. I’m glad I gave it another try though because I love my G color amora gem.

1.21 carat F IF amora gem  (dud)

My current 1.65 carat G Vs1

aviendha123:  yours looks gorgeous in the second picture. Not like the first one I got at all. I’d give it a little more time before you make up your mind.

That’s just not right.  You shouldn’t have to settle for a sometimes dark patch.  Can you exchange it?

I would exchange it! My Amora never has a dark spoy like that. I know it’s cheaper than a diamond but I wouldn’t be happy paying for a less than perfect product.

I have never seen an Amora Gem in person so you can take my opinion with a grain of salt, but based on other photos I’ve seen Bees post, you got a dud.  Even in your “good” pictures, I can see the fisheye.  I’ve seen a fisheye in a real diamond and that’s exactly what yours looks like.

I’m surprised too they would send it out.  It clearly is not perfect.  I would exchange it or get a refund if possible.

My oval F1 has this too :/ I decided to live with it because getting it reset was such a pain, but it still kinda bothers me sometimes

aviendha123:  thanks!  Yes for the most part that’s how it looks except it’s not usually that warm. 

Here’s a crappy Webcam pic I took of it, I can see a dark spot in the center in this pic . Its the only pic i could find of my stone looking that way. This isn’t something I usually see and i think it’s just the lighting making the crown of the stone go dark. But I really think you have a beautiful stone and the dark center in your first pic is not what I’d consider a fish eye or nail head, it’s probably just the lighting and the angle.
