When nothing but the most brilliant Cushion cut (~9% more brilliant than diamond), can exemplify your love, then look no further than Amora.

Amora is the first true "J color" Moissanite cushion available anywhere for sizes 7mm and higher.  We back that claim with independent color grading and certification for *every* Amora Moissanite over 6.5mm.

Raw moissanite cushion cuts (what is sold everywhere now as "moissanite") is M/N color (per GIA diamond grading scale) or worse (up to O/P color!) for 7mm and higher.

(Please scroll to the bottom of the page to see 2 Moissanite Cushions by Charles and Colvard that we had certed to document the typical color grades). 

If anyone claims differently, ask them why they don't offer an independent grading report for their supposedly 'near colorless' moissanite..

Amora Enhanced Moissanite are created by the following process:

1 - Raw moissanite cushions from Charles and Colvard are filtered to ensure no excessive green tint, grey tint or shallow/poor cutting (more than 50% are rejected).  

2 - Raw moissanite is then transformed, using a multi-patent applications in the works process, to substantially improve, at the atomic level, the color of the Moissanite.  

The improvements permanently transform it into a more perfect Moissanite (perfect Moissanite is colorless for reference) and thus create an Amora.  This transformation is somewhat analagous to HPHT when done for diamond (turns brown diamonds clear), and the visual improvement can be startling - 7mm and larger Moissanite's go from M/N color to J color (faint color to true near-colorless). 

4 - The Amora Moissanite undergoes a final independent inspection at a diamond grading lab to prove its final color grade (try getting that for any raw moissanite) and recieve its laser engraving marking it as a true Amora Moissanite.  

Amora Moissanite are offered for sale exclusively at and  All Amora Enhanced Moissanite ship with laser engraving, and sizes over 6.5mm with an independent grading report.  

Example grading reports showing color's of regular Moissanite by Charles and Colvard (which claims 'near colorless' to their stones).  We accept those that grade M/N and treat for the Amora program to yield J color Amora:

Amora Moissanite -

Amora™ Moissanite is independently graded at an average of four color grades whiter than regular Moissanite by Charles & Colvard, and is the worlds first 'true' near colorless moissanite. Having a jeweller in the family he was shocked at the beauty of this stone and could not believe it was a Moissanite.. By comparison, regular Moissanite is typically K color for 7mm+ rounds, and M-N color for Cushion cuts 7mm+.


Amora Moissanite Round -

Due to a trademark conflict, we have changed the product brand from Mira to Amora Moissanite..there may be some cross-references while we change over but the underlying product remains the same. This transformation is somewhat analagous to HPHT when done for diamond, and the visual improvement can be startling - 7mm and larger Moissanite's go from K/L color to H color.


Amora H&A Gem -

Due to competing patent restrictions from Charles & Colvard related to SiC gems that covers several crystal sub-types including the Amora gem's crystal structure, Amora H&A may not be available in your country until 2012 to as late as 2015 - whenever the related patent expires or in the case of US, invalidated.
