    momochi:  I don’t have a great eye for these things, but it’s weird because I like the bottom one in the top 2 pics and the top in the bottom 2 pics! I’m curious what other people say though. I don’t think you can really go wrong. They’re both very pretty.

    princesserbear:  Me too – exactly like you said. I’m sure they’re both lovely in person though.

    Hmm they both look beautiful but I love the way the top gem looks in the last picture. Last summer I bought a 1.21 F IF amora gem ultra and hated it( I swear it looked plastic), I now have a 1.65 G Vs1 amora gem ultra and I love it. So I do believe some are better than others, the first one I had was a dud in my opinion because I’ve seen other F IF amora on here that are gorgeous. I also think that it’s possible that the gems being produced now have improved from the ultras that were released last year.

    momochi:  I think they are both equally beautiful and I don’t really see a difference. I think that I would take whichever one was cheaper in this case UNLESS to your eyes there are properties you like better in a particular stone (it’s hard to see in pictures what you would be seeing with your own eyes).

    The first Amora I bought was a 1.59ct F VS2 last year and I was not crazy about it for various reasons. It looked way smaller than it was listed for especially when compared to several other stones I had, the cut was chunky and it looked kind of dull- definitely not what I was expecting from a stone where the properties should optically be more sparkly than a diamond/moissanite. I sent it back, and didn’t regret it at all. I figured I would wait and make sure the next one was amazing.

    the second one I got was THE stone. I got a 1.87 ct G VS2 and it was 100% what I was expecting that the first one was lacking.

    You should get someone to mix them up in different settings and then you pick which one you like best (a blind test) to see if there is any consistency between the one you like in different lighting.
