    No, they are great stones, but I don't think they will make less than 1.5 carats any time soon. : (4 votes)

    I’m sure you’ve already seen this one from winkcz. But I just wanted to mention that it measures very close to a 1 carat round.

    afllawyerbride:  I would check eBay! I just sold my 2 carat G VVS2 round Amora on eBay. I know there are some for sale on etsy, too, but especially eBay. As long as the stone comes with a grading report and from a reputable seller, I think you’d be fine!

    afllawyerbride:  That is one reason I just went with the F1 Moissanite. I wanted to order an amora gem to compare so badly but by the time I could they were all out of the sizes I wanted to look at. I knew it would be forever before they brought them back again so I got the moissy and I really love it, though the cut is not for everyone. I would say that would be the next best option for a colorless forever stone. I am gonna try and get my hands on the new cut amora gems they will be releasing, I am very interested in seeing those but who knows when that will be!

    afllawyerbride:  There’s actually a loose 1.4 carat round on eBay right now!

    ETA – there’s also a 1.5 round G color for $1300 that I’d totally snatch up! I liked the G colors the best. I’ve had two Gems.

    There’s a 1.61 E SI1 on eBay for $1260 and a 1.44 D VS2 for $1481. Both sizes will not look that much bigger than 1.3. You might have to flex a bit, since I doubt they make many stones in the smaller sizes. After all, most people interested in amora/moissy are looking for a larger carat weight than they could afford in a diamond.

    afllawyerbride:  I’m in a similar situation as I am looking for something in the 1.5ct range.  I will have to start stalking ebay.  I don’t know why they don’t make smaller sizes.  Either that, or they get swooped up as soon as they are released.

    I saw a Forever One moissanite in person and thought it was stunning so maybe that could be something else to consider.

    I think in the next few months they will have a lot more in stock than they do now, they are building another two robots and they have only just started production with the first robot.

    Just an FYI, I got my 1 carat marquise diamond ring on eBay for $600. It is SI1 and M in color, but I imagine with your higher budget you could find a one carat diamond there in a G. Might be worth looking into!

    afllawyerbride:  i dont think there would be a substantial size difference, but when comparing a .89 to a 1 2 side by side then it would be somewhat noticeable. As for the D color, in smaller sizes the color probably wouldn’t be as apparent. However, I’d hold off buying an amora gem for another month or so just to make sure nothing else comes up in the carat size and color range you have your heart set on. That way you have no regrets!
