Our website shows live inventory, and the search page can help find your perfect Amora!
We have added quite a few Amora Gem Ultra H&A rounds to our available inventory. Today’s restock includes sizes from 1.29ct – 3.57ct, or right at 7mm up to 9.75mm.
BTD’s president has posted the most recent news and updates in the forum blog, and here are a few highlights:
Happy Friday and Happy New Year – 2015! (and early Happy Chinese New Year!)
2015 is of course ‘the’ year for Amora Gem as the US market will shortly be open in full.
Record 2014 sales for BTD. First and foremost, I wanted to thank all of our customers for your support and feedback this past year.
Given that people ‘vote’ for products with their purchasing dollars, then our growth can be viewed as feedback that we are producing and offering lab grown gems that a growing number of customers are pleased to purchase and wear.
Amora Gem Updates:
Ultra inventory – restocked < 1.50ct sizes, but sold out again: We have been working hard to produce more Amora Gem Ultra’s below the 1.50ct size, but even with the recent restock of .80ct – 1.25ct, those sold out within a week and we are currently sold out again for the past two weeks.
We are shifting some resources towards expanding the < 1.50ct sizes and hope to have some much larger restocks in February. Note that we also expect to have more 6mm range (.75ct) in February as well.
New notification list – http://BetterThanDiamond.com/notify
We’ve setup an improved notification system directly on BetterThanDiamond.com now that will supercede our old system on AmoraGems.com (note- you’ll still be notified if you signed up already via AmoraGems.com!).
We are planning to expand it next month to handle requests for other products (Asha, Takara, Amora Enhanced) as well.
Amora Cushion Explosion: We’ve been able to slowly expand our Cushion production, but what has been a surprise is the amount of demand for the Amora Gem Cushion cut. It’s rare that a restock lasts a single week out for sale, and further,the notification list is now twice as long for Cushions as for the Ultra.
As a result, we are expanding Cushion cut production for February and hope to be able to stock a spread of sizes from 7mm – 11mm over the next four weeks.
Amora Enhanced Production continuing for now: Amora Enhanced Moissanite continues to see demand, so for now we are continuing production. Currently we have more 7mm and 7.5mm in progress. These should be ready near the end of February.
We also have a few Amora Gem Ultra H&A Cushions in stock in the 2.79-2.80ct size, or just under 8.5mm.

Happy Halloween! This month we’ve got bad news, good news and interesting news.
Amora Gem – The Ultimate Gem updates:
Our robot supplier has defrauded us: Let’s jump right into the bad news. We had paid, in full, for another robot to join our Amora Gem robot team back in July, with the assurance that full payment up front meant a guaranteed October delivery.
The situation now is that we are currently out the money for the robot, and our holiday production will not be able to expand as planned.
Announcing BTD’s new robotics division! With the bad news aside, some longer term good news.
Thus, I am happy to announce that as of two weeks ago, we’ve founded our new Robotics division for BTD.
So, while it’s been a terrible experience short term to have a key supplier pull this kind of fraud, and at a time when we were counting on the increased production, the long term result will be that we have the ability to build better robots and at a faster pace than the former supplier.
I’ll have more updates as our TIGER robot design continues to be fleshed out, but the main news is that BTD is now not only a lab grown gem manufacturer, but also a robotics company!
RingExplorer.com – no further development planned: Unfortunately our ring search engine site RingExplorer.com has not gained enough traction to be worth continuing at this point. Thus, we’re freezing all further development on it. Resources that were being used there will be re-routed to focus on DiamondBistro, which I’ll comment on next.
DiamondBistro.com – growing rapidly, and we are rebuilding the *entire* site from scratch to massively improve it
That’s it for this month. Happy Halloween and hope you have a great weekend. See you at the end of November for our last blog of 2014!
