But the performance of the round will be stronger and may give an illusion of facing up larger.

Not really.

Does she want a rectangular radiant or a square radiant?

Re: next steps beyond the HCA tool for 2.8 to 3.0 stone

The ACA is really nice.

The next step is to ask for an Ideal Scope picture or ASET picture, a regular picture may suffice if IS photo is not available.

You are supposed to put the ones you are interested in at JA on hold and ask for ASET pictures.

Ask Blue Nile if they are eye-clean and for an Ideal Scope picture or ASET picture. If they say it is not available, ask for a regular picture.
