Seeing as you have the diamond, you should use it for something. It’s beautiful and super sparkly. However, the new Amora ovals are near H&A and they look awesome. What if you got another 0.5 ct diamond, and make a 3 stone oval setting with a larger Amora in the middle?

I think you should really try and see am oval AG in person before you decide.. My ering has a 2.2ct AG and although it’s beautiful, it still looks and sparkles very different than that of a diamond.  The oval AG has less of the crushed ice look than the oval diamond does..

It’s pretty personal as to what calls to you.

I had an Amora enhanced moissanite as well (also from 2012) and though I recently traded it to someone else I loved it: it was lovely and very white.  I have also had other moissanites, and even an Amora Gem for a hot few seconds. Moissanites and Amora Gems can be truly beautiful stones in their own right! But, if you ask me genuinely what I like the looks and performance of better, well, that is a diamond, even if smaller. It’s not something that is apparent so much in photos as it is in real life day to day conditions. If I had to choose only one – if I lived in a world without RHRs or alternate rings – I’d go with the diamond. In fact, I recently sold off all my moissanites to help towards a new diamond ring without any regrets.

So, in your shoes, I would set that pretty oval diamond in a pretty setting that compliments it and be very happy. Not everyone feels that way though, so you need to really decide what is best for you. 

I agree with both you and humanahumana that the best thing to do may be to order an Amora Gem in person first to decide 🙂

LynnGale2012:  those were my exact sentiments when I decided to go with the AG oval. My fiance and I do well enough to buy the real thing but I still couldnt justify spending >10k when I wanted a “substantial” size and a beautiful stone.  Either way, I’m sure you will end up with the ring you love after the research you put into it!

Here’s my ag just in case you wanted to see!

Diamond because 1) I am all about the natural gems and 2) even apart from that the oval sims dont look nice IMO and 3) you already have it.

LynnGale2012:  LOL should I post more pics/vids? Also wanted to note: BTD is coming out with a new cut for the AG Ovals (Called “pure hearts”) and they apparently achieved a hearts and arrows cut in the oval shape.  I asked on the forum how it differs from the original AG oval and I was told that the first AG Oval release is similar to a traditional oval diamond facet pattern, whereas the “Pure Hearts” will reflect a H&A facet pattern.  Not sure if this helps or makes things more complicated for ya but happy pickins!!!

If you decide to not use the diamond for a ring, it would look beautiful as a pendant.
