Cathedral with 7.5mm round

The latest news from BetterThanDiamond has been posted on our discussion board, and here are a few highlights:

Amora Gem grading reports now specify Amora Gem as the crystal type: I’m extremely happy to note that all grading reports, as of this week, now specify Amora Gem as the crystal type.
Previously the grading reports simply listed “Lab Grown Silicon Carbide” as the crystal, but with the growing awareness of the fact that Amora Gem is it’s own crystal type within the 200+ Silicon Carbide family, all grading reports going forward now specify it as “Lab Grown Silicon Carbide – Amora Gem”.

Production updates – continued focus on 1ct – 2ct sizes: We’ve been steadily able to increase the amount of mid-range size Amora Gems we are cutting, though many of them have sold out quite rapidly since supply has been low for so long. We’ve just stocked the first ever 6.5mm Asschers for example, and restocked 6.5mm Cushions, and have been restocking 7mm (1.25ct) – 8mm(2ct) Ultra H&A rounds. We do have .75ct and 1.00ct Ultras in progress.

All of the cuts are available on the inventory page, making it the best spot for one stop viewing of our entire current Amora Gem inventory.
Here’s a direct link, and it’s always available directly under the Amora Gem menu:

BTD News:
Takara Ultra-pure Lab Diamonds now available! D and E color! I’m thrilled to be able to report that we have our first batch of Takara lab grown diamonds now available for immediate sale. The first batch all graded as D or E color, including two that are E color, Internally Flawless! Sizes range from .53ct to 1.52ct.
Here’s a studio photo of a D/VVS2, 1.07ct:

Amora Enhanced Mossanite – 7mm restocked, 95% G color!: We recently finished the last batch of 7mm rounds from an earlier pre-screening, and had the highest rate of G color to date – 95% were G color! The remainder were H color. We don’t have any firm ideas on the reason why it was so high, but this was a record color improvement result.
Amora Enhanced Mossanite – pre-screening rejections skyrocketing: We’re currently working on getting more Moissanite to process, but lately the rejection rate has been skyrocketing due to declining cutting standards in the moissanite.

Details:
265 8mm were brought in. A whopping 26 passed..or 10:1 rejection to pass rate.

100 6.5mm were then brought in. *Every single one* was rejected. 0 passed cutting screening. I don’t recall that ever happening in the 3 years of Amora enhanced Moissanite – previous rejection rates were more 40-60% average.

We are exceptionally thrilled to announce the first colorless batch of Takara lab grown diamonds is now available!

Our Takara lab grown diamonds are real, ultra-pure, ultra-hard, colorless lab grown white diamonds.

Takara lab diamonds are purer and harder than 98% of all mined diamonds. This ultra-purity results in exceptional clearness, allowing for amazing light play.

There is currently one cushion cut Takara diamond available, and several rounds including a 1.07ct D/VVS2.
