    Purchased a loose stone to set in an heirloom engagement band.

    I was not disappointed. Jeweler here in Chicago wasn't new to moissanite, but still marveled at the quality of the stone. He spent minutes examining it under a loupe. Asked me how much I paid for it. :cool:

    He used the diamond tester (positive for moissanite :rolleyes:); his independent testing for mm and carat weight (1.77 diamond equivalent; 1.6 moissanite) were exactly as BTD listed.

    The stone is STUNNING. I have 1.0 TCW stud earrings (purchased in 2012 from moissanite & co) and the original stone in the engagement ring is a very small but clean diamond. This stone exceeds them all by far.

    I spent half my morning playing with the stone in the light. It is so brilliant.

    So I spent like 4 years lurking on BTD and now that I have the stone set in the ring, I finally get it. It's not a diamond substitute. It's not a marketing ploy. Amora is actually, really, truly better than a diamond.

    Pictures and video can not do the Amora justice. It is so dynamic in all lighting conditions.

    It doesn't look garish or fake. (although I'm happy to call my stone an Amora)

    The fire is intricate and sophisticated.
