Shell, it seems like you certainly are qualified to determine if a stone is green or not. You've owned enough diamonds to know what a lower colored diamond should look like in gray weather. I definitely think your expectations were appropriate, and I'm sorry that the Amora didn't live up.
Erica at Jewels by Erica Grace said that she saw zero green in my stone and she analyzed it in a number of different lighting considitions, including overcast weather. I hope that assures you that the Amora's can be truly beautiful, and even an antique diamond expert thought so
She said she expected green, but it just wasn't there.
I'm sorry if my previous post seemed like it was antagonistic toward you, as that was completely something I was trying to avoid. I posted my mini rant on color/expectations because lots of people are freaking out about the yellow Amora 'epidemic' and I feel like they should understand that far fewer stones are duds than what is being reported in recent months. I was writing mostly in response to the Mike/Hadley conversations about the declining QC at MoCo. I'm not out to say that MoCo doesn't make mistakes, that certainly would be impossible; but I don't think it's fair that people recently have been crawling out the wood work to say they have a mistake stone. Some of that problem is based on skewed expectations from the get-go.
Anywho, sorry for the ran, Hun. I think you probably did get a funky monkey, because you know what to look for (where as some other people don't).
