    I love pictures :D

    To post pics, you must first upload to a photo sharing site (such as photobucket) and then, using the image icon on the reply screen, upload your image.

    The AG ovals are going to be a while. But F1 moissanite ovals are available in that size I believe. It would be white and beautiful.

    I am glad you could see a moissanite in real life, compared with the CZ. :)

    I know this is an old thread, but earlier this month I ordered a Diamanti-IX (CZ) and a Diamanti Aterna (SiC) as loose stones as I too was curious about Quorri and couldn't make a decision based on the little amount of reviews online.

    The Diamanti-IX is cut to H&A and it was a very nice stone. I've never seen an Asha so I can't compare it to it but I would say it's a similar idea, coated CZ. It's a very lovely stone, high quality polish, visible H&A pattern, deep steel contrast very diamond like, had a lot of fire and brilliance, but still had CZ-like windowing which I expected, and for that reason I returned it.

    The Diamanti Aterna wasn't cut to H&A (which is why I ended up returning it as well) but I took some photos and videos below, as it's a really nice stone. As you know the videos and photos don't capture reality, but hope it gives you an idea. It was really well cut under magnification, has a lovely sparkle, and it tested positive for a diamond majority of the time even on a diamond-moissanite tester. I haven't seen other Moissanite's so it's difficult for me to compare the stone as well (maybe others can share their input!).

    Customer support mentioned they will be getting H&A Aterna so I might re-visit later on to see how that is, as I couldn't wait for it and went for the new Eternity H&A Amora Gem.
