The sales person told me they were ideal. After reading some info on this web site today it now appears they aren't.

To be called "ideal" does only the table have to be 52.4% - 57.5%?

Thanks!:confused:

According to AGS yes.

However table size can be less important than cron and pavilion angles. A diamond with 60% table can still be a nice stone.

The ponint is not to consider table % or depth % alone but take other proportions such as crown and pavilion angles into account.[/u]
