It is not possible to calculate the crown and pavilion angles from the GIA report. You either need a Sarin report or an AGS report in order to judge the cut.

Hi, I was looking around and found this thread which clarifies my question (same as nywebchick).
So in a nutshell, there is no way of determining the angle of the crown and pavillion from the report.
What is one to do when looking at stones that have only a GIA report then?
I''m hunting for a 10 yr anny (loose) stone but there is no way to determine the proprotions..... so what do I do?
Thanks in advance for any help,
Gianmarco (newbie diamond buyer)

btw, this forum really opened my eyes, great job to all!


FWIW, I narrowed it down to 3 but this is the stone I''m thinking to pull the trigger on (after wife said size matters):

Cutlet none
Polish good
Symmetry good
