Amora Gem Princess

 

This text below and the photo above show our previous Amora Gem Princess cut.  

Amora Gem in a scintiallating Princess cut  (now US Patent pending: 13/462,918).  

As with all our Amora cuts, our princess is the result of many months of signifcant effort on modeling, refining, testing and perfecting this cut to fully handle the extreme brilliance of the Amora gem.


 

The result is a princess cut with exceptional brilliance.  The winning model, in it's computer tested form, is shown above.  Please note that this is a true princess cut, and not a 'square brilliant' like what is done in Moissanite.

The Amora gem princess will be offered in sizes from 6.5mm (1.5ct) to 9mm (approx 4ct).

Amora Gem Details and Info:

The Amora gem is "The Ultimate Gem", and is the first lab gem to surpass diamond by nearly every measure.  

Amora gem is a naturally occurring crystal around very large stars, where it occurs as stardust (See Astronomy & Astrophysics journal, April 1988).  The Amora gem crystal only grows in extremely high temperatures that would quickly vaporize diamond.  Due to the incredibly high temperatures it requires for growth, it is only present on Earth near the Earth's heated core, and it's lack of availability is perhaps one reason that diamond became the most prized gem on Earth.  

However, on 11/11/11 the Amora gem debuted alongside the oldest crystals on our planet (Jack Hills Zircon, 4.4 Billion years old) at the Hungarian Natural History Museum in a display entitled "The Oldest and The Newest", and the patent-pending Amora gem will be available to consumers in select countries for the first time in limited quantities in 2013.

Amora lab grown gem compared to Diamond:

  • More Brilliant than Diamond
  • More Fire than Diamond
  • Greater physical stability than Diamond
  • Tougher than Diamond
  • Rarer than Diamond (over 1 Million times rarer!)
  • D, E, F color - better color than most diamonds
  • Greater Purity than Diamond - Atomically, Ethically, Environmentally
  • Scores significantly better in the 5th C - Cost, oftentimes 40:1 better pricing for comparable color, carat weight and clarity. 
  • Amora Gem is The Ultimate Gem.

Amora lab gem compared to other gems:

  • More brilliant than Moissanite
  • Far better color than Moissanite by Charles and Colvard, and absolutely no green tinting in diffuse lighting (F Color vs. K-N color)
  • 26.7% Harder than Sapphire
  • More brilliant than CZ
  • Harder than CZ

In short, Amora gem is truly the ultimate gem, eclipsing diamond in every measure of optical beauty.  

(Note: For additional details, you may also want to read through our 11/11/11 debut presentation on our message boards here - link )

Incredible Robotic Cutting:

Within a given crystal type, cutting controls 98% of the brilliance.  

Thus, we have devoted significant resources to modeling, cutting, designing and testing the Amora Gem cuts in order to achieve an optimal and maximal balance between the two competing goals of maximum fire and maximum brilliance for Amora gems unique optical properties.  The Amora Asscher design is the final winner of a number of evaluated parameters and proportions and strikes the ultimate balance for both fire and brilliance.  

Amora Gem is now Patent Pending in the US, and we have multiple foreign patents in progress.

Additionally, all Amora Gems are cut *exclusively* by robot, an industry first.  Robotic cutting enables super-human precision and incredible craftsmanship compared to hand cutting, as the robot only cuts to optimal proportions and exacting symmetry.  This ensures that *every* Amora has unparalleled beauty.

  1. Stunning

    By Justin on August 6th, 2016

    I got one of these for my fiance. I rotated it 90 degrees in the setting so it kinda has an ascher look to it. Quite a nice look i have to say, i'm not sure why more people don't do it.
    Anyway, the stone is amazing. I was lucky enough to get a D color and Flawless. Truly spectacular. Way better than a diamond...


  2. BTD is awesome

    By Unknown on August 25th, 2015

    I got one of your princess cut AGs and it's amazing.
    What's amazing about it is this -- it's truly better than a diamond.

    I have nothing against diamonds, but I really don't like the diamond industry, particularly because they've been so good at exploiting insecurities in men and women when it comes to marriage. I don't want to go into too much detail, but I'm sure you know what I'm talking about. It's complete BS that we (consumers) should either 1) buy a diamond or 2) spend 2 months salary on one.

    Thank you for bucking this trend by creating something better.

    Thanks for giving us a better choice!!


  3. I love it sooo much!

    By Unknown on August 6th, 2015

    I love it sooo much! I took it to a jeweler today to try some bands with it. The first guy asks me what size ct. the "diamond" was and I told him 2.
    He then called over his co-worker and he was like, "OMG That is beautiful! Can I see it closer?" Of course I let him. He just awed and smiled at it.
    Now I can go happily on my way to find a band. Thank you sooo much!!

    I'm replacing my old Forever Brilliant Moissanite ring for this baby. Not looking back!
