Stephan, what do you think of this statement:

Diamond cutters and gemologists agree an oval shape diamond with a depth percentage between 63% and 68% delivers the greatest amount of brilliance while exhibiting only a small bow tie affect. Oval shape diamonds under 62% usually produce larger bow tie affects due to reduced pavilion angles. Oval shape diamonds which measure over 68% generally have less bow tie but appear darker and smaller overall.

If you look at the David Atlas Oval-Chart, an ideal oval's depth has to be between 59% and 63%.
I don't know for the bow-tie because I prefer round stones.

Looked at the stone again, and got the Sarin numbers, other opinions are appreciated.

Crown Angle 36.4
Crown Height% 17.8
Pavillion Depth % 44.2

Small bowtie, but seems to lack something, possibly brilliance, or fire.

Thanks!
