I'm glad you guys came to clarify but I'm not sure if it's enough for me. At this point I'd rather do business with Less but good luck with the Forever Brilliant.


well obviously I don't think many who come to these forums and see the amora vs the fb are going to pick the fb. I know what company I'd buy enhanced moissy from.. just remember all moissy comes from c&c for now anyway. either way you go you are still buying from C&C.

So, correct me if I am wrong but isn't it either moissaniteco.com or C&C? I understand that Less Amora-izes the stones but it's actually moissaniteco that sells them?

Please do, correct me if I am wrong.

Well, we haven't really seen the FB stone yet. We've only seen the coated stones they sent out by mistake, the ones Less had tested.
I know the moissy for Amora moissy comes from C&C. Once Amora Gem hits the market that won't be a problem. grin

I'm not sure what you mean exactly. Let me see if I can get this right...
Moissaniteco . com is MikeC & Mrs.Mike (Jera)
BTD and Asha Diamonds is Less

C&C makes and sells ALL moissy...Less enhances them with Amora treatment which is sold at BTD and Moissco.

C&C own website is moissanite . com and they will sell their own Forever Brilliant.




I wonder if Less can take a FB and Amoraize it and make it even whiter, lol!!!

You answered it for me =) I thought for some reason that only moissaniteco.com sold the Amora moissanite stones. I didn't realize that they could be purchased through BTD. Thanks!! =)

It all depends on how the enhancement is done. If it changes the stone at an atomic level like the Amora process does, then yes, it could be. If it is a surface enhancement, than the heat will likely just burn it off.

Just to re-explain how the Amora process "whitens" the stone it fixes broken bonds in the crystal structure of the Moissanite. Once mended, these no-longer-broken Moissanite bonds don't react with incoming light and so the stone is whiter. Therefore it makes the Moissanite more perfect and fixes the color at its source.

If the Forever Brilliant process isn't fixing the broken bonds and thereby fixing the color at its source (they have stated multiple times its not HPHT) then logically they must be adding something to the stone to make it appear whiter.

I am very interested to learn more, but unfortunately at this point we can only wait until the great unveiling in April.

I do appreciate Randy posting here. I know not only their retailers (such as me) but shareholders will appreciate more transparency.

But wait,..Ashadiamonds.com is owned by Mike & Jera who also own moissaniteco.com

Heheee...yes, I got that backwards. It IS confusing sometimes!! Mira-Amora, moissco- moiss.com, Less-Mike, melee-melly, DK-SK-GOG-LM.... crazy

I always find myself thinking Asha is Less because he posts restock updates on Fridays in the Amora update threads. smile
