I'd like to buy a loose enhanced moissanite in a 10mm round. I'm debating between Amora and Forever Brilliant. Has anyone seen both and, if so, is there much of a color difference? The retail price difference is very small, but I can buy the FB for a lot less than the Amora. That's why I need to know if there's much of a difference. Thanks for any replies.

Can you order both and compare? and then just send the one back that you like the least...

I could always do that but I'd rather hear from anyone who has seen both and can tell me if there's a definite difference. It seems unfair to order two, knowing that one would have to be refunded.

Well they are too different products, and "better" is subjective. It is like unenhanced and Amora enhanced... some like one, some like the other. To know what you think is prettiest, I would compare with your own eyes.

I agree with this. I might think one is way better then the other and you might think the opposite. Maybe try ordering the forever brilliant and see if you like it. If you don't, then go with an Amora. I know Amoras are limited but I am not sure how limited they are in the size you want.

I understand what you're saying but I wasn't asking about which was better or prettier. I wanted to know if there is s color difference. I am interested in the stone that has the least amount of body color. I'm sure both stones are gorgeous because even my unenhanced are really beautiful. I was hoping that someone here had seen both and could tell me if there is a huge difference in the color (or lack thereof).

I believe FBs are supposed a few shades whiter than unenhanced moissanite, but I haven't seen one in person so I can't say that's for certain. I have only seen photo and video comparisons on here.

I always thought Amora was whiter because of all the research that BTD had done on both Amora and FB stones, but Chris at MoissaniteCo (who deals in both Amora and FB regularly) said that he feels that FB is consistantly as white, if not whiter than Amora.

Thank you for giving me Chris' opinion. I trust his opinion because he sells both. I will be ordering the FB. Thanks again for all replies.

Hello!
I joined this forum just so I could post about my Forever Brilliant stone. Let me say how incredibly pleased I have been with my stone. I had a 1.5 ct stone put in my current diamond mounting. No one, not even my hubby have noticed!(Don't know how! LOL!) I had a 1 ct. quattro diamonds set in the center before this. I have been lurking on these boards for a long time.
I have seen Amora, and I think my FB can stand with it. No one has asked me if my stone was real. I am married to an attorney, so I think the stone change was not unrealistic.
I have wanted a solid stone for my mounting for a long time. My oldest child is going to school. Who can afford $10,000 for a small rock? When I see the resale of diamonds, why would I want to blow that kind of money.
FB has given me the stone of my dreams! Don't hesitate, ladies!
