    Aterna by Quorri

    I recently purchased a fiery diamond (mined) and love its personality. Don’t think I’d mind it in a stimulant/alternative. To me, cut is priority. Yet, I haven’t 100% decided if I want the CZ or SiC to look like a diamond, or if I want the stone’s own natural beauty to shine. As an example, I...

    Also curious...how is it different from the Amora Gem? Both are 50% carbon, 50% SiC. Both claim Mohs of 9.5. Different atomic structure? One cut by hand (Aterna) and other by robot (Amora)? Couldn’t find any video comparisons.

    Takara White Diamond restock! Check out the new prices

    Going to pose a hypothetical conundrum related to insuring a synthetic diamond vs a mined diamond. Assuming that synthetic diamond prices follow a similar trend to other lab-created gems and become significantly less expensive per ct over time (technological advances and market competition), if...

    Cut Advancements and Upgrades

    Less, Are you referring to homeowners/renters insurance or jewelry insurance? I was under the impression that they operated slightly differently. If homeowners does a sufficient job covering, why do people purchase a separate jewelry insurance? Thanks!

Although it did not state where white rough is sourced, am I safe...

    Takara White Diamond restock! Check out the new prices

    Two months too late . Realizing that the white lab-Grown Takara diamonds take much longer to grow and are not as profitable, do you still plan to grow and restock them in sprints? Although I’m interested in the AG (per my recent post in the AG forum), I’d still like to own a diamond without...

    Cut Advancements and Upgrades

    Since the Amora Gem is “rarer” than diamond, would it be overkill for me to double down on the rarity aspect and get a D-IF? I found an online retailer in Europe that has one in stock in my preferred size, but I’m not sure if I’d have to pay import fees, etc. Also, for insurance purposes...
