@Ninteenthchance:  Thank you!  I’m so happy it looks like a diamond and not a disco ball in the sun.  I’m sold!

I hate to be a buzzkill but I am disappointed. It is a crisp and clear stone for sure, but in the video and pics at least lacks Fire massively, and therefore for me lacks character. There are only some yellow flashes that I can discern when it is being moved about. Please don’t hate me for this, this is just my honest opinion.

For reference, this is Unenhanced Moissanite in the sun and it wins hands down in my opinion:

I thought excellent cut diamonds don’t have crazy sparkle in sunlight…the Amora Gem looked pretty convincing to me…I could be wrong, but now that makes me want to see an excellent cut diamond and an Amora Gem side by side in the sunlight..hmmm

Sorry, but diamonds are quite fiery stones and they do show serious flashes of fire in sunlight.

I can’t find the sun video right now, I will keep looking , although I know diamonds well (I have one myself and have friends wearing diamonds) – well cut diamond is FIERY, and AG is just not.

Here is the video in the jewelry store by the window of Tiffany ring for reference:

This is the kind of fire the diamond shows even on a grey background:

Where are you guys coming from thinking that diamonds don’t have fire? That is what they are most loved for.  Lack of fire does NOT make a stone make look like a diamond.

Granted Moissy fire is more “rainbowy”, i.e. a lot of small colour flashes, diamond has chunkier but fewer flashes. The flashes of fire of a diamond are quite spectacular actually. Now AG looks totally lifeless to me in that respect. I am sorry. Frown I would rather have a diamond or a moissy, but that is just me. Laughing

@sparkletiger:  I agree that indoor lighting, dim resturant lighting a diamond will sparkle like crazy but in direct sunlight I haven’t always felt that was the case…

I think the sun might hit the ring at the wrong direction. I would try shoot from a different angle  maybe.

@sparkletiger:  Not every single time they are in the sun, no I don’t think they do. During my last two engagements I have had excellent cut diamonds, that was my #1 “C” preference. Sometimes they would sparkle in the sun sometimes they wouldn’t. I was surprised the first time I saw it not sparkle in the sun, I thought my exes’ bought me a fake LOL…but they were real…the last engagement the diamond was bigger than my first engagment and from what I can remember the smaller diamond sparkled more than the larger diamond although they were both excellent cut.

Don’t get me wrong, I like the clearness and whiteness of AG, but the lack of fire is killing it for me. For those that don’t find Fire that important, it is certainly a great option. Smile

Well cut diamonds do have quite chuncky flashes of fire in the sun, the bigger the diamond, the bigger that flash will be. And it is not just in the sun, Wink made a video of AG and diamond under the same lighting conditions, and diamond has a lot more fire there too. I kinda hoped, that the sun would change that and the AG will have more fire in the sun, but in this video it is not the case. The only thing that might explain almost total lack of it is the fact that it is not totally clear sky, i.e. sun shines through the cloud, for istance.

But another issue that is apparent from the video to me, is that when the stone is tilied, I see quite a lot of yellow. That is something the first reviewer LightBlue on BTD forum noticed. She said: In the sunlight, when tilited, the stone has a slight yellow tint throughout. I see that effect in this video too.

The thing is I personally don’t mind slight warmth, but I like personality in the stone, fire and things like that. I love both diamonds and moissy but so far not very taken by AG. I am sure some people will be and that is totally fine by me. Smile
