@anneelizabeth - I hope you love it! I think that if you like a J color diamond you'll like your Amora. I can certainly notice some color in mine, but it also certainly doesn't look yellow to me. It's really just a matter of preference, and I don't mind the tiny bit of warmth at all.
@sparkle621 - Thanks! It's a bit smaller than I would go in a solitaire, but I think it will be perfect in the halo
@MGR - Thanks for clarifying that the last picture is actually a video. I would have imbedded the video, but I couldn't figure out how to do that from photobucket
I've been walking around carrying my Amora in its little case and examining it under the lighting in every room around campus. Slighly OCD, I know
This is what I've found:Incandescent (normal light bulb) Lighting:
Appears bright and white (G/H to me), subdued fire with some rainbow colorsIndirect Incandescent Lighting (view underneath my cupped hand):
Appears bright and white (G/H to me) but does not throw rainbow colorsFluorescent Lighting:
Appears slightly darker than Incandescent lighting but similar color (G/H), perhaps more rainbow colorsSpotlighting (University auditorium):
The most sparkly, fiery, blinding gem I've ever seen, shoots a crazy amount of rainbow colors, about G/H colorDirect Natural Light (outside):
Not quite as fiery and sparkly as under spotlighting, but is still incredibly fiery, color is more true to "I" grade, shoots a rainbow of colorsIndirect Natural Light (next to a window):
Very bright, no rainbow but still sparkles, has a warm, creamy color that might seem more like J/K but is still not what I would yellow (more like cream or off-white), shows a lot of depth and it is easiest to see the faceting pattern in this lighting
So, to wrap it up, if you like modern cushions and don't mind I/J stones, the Amora is an awesome choice. If you do not like any color in your stones at all in any lighting, go with Asha or wait for the Amora gem.
