What are peoples thoughts about cushions with large tables and low crown angles for an HW mp halo setting?

I have looked at a ton and prefer the small table, high crown, chunk faceted look but the one I saw today had great fire and brilliance but a 69% table and low crown angles. It looked really nice but I think I fell in love with the smaller tabled chunky faceted look... I know its all personal preference but just wondering what others thought.

I think depending on the stone they can be nice and it really *does* boil down to preferences. Personally though, I prefer a smaller table because otherwise I see a lot of table glare which bothers me.

It depends on the actual diamond for me.

Agreed, each one is individual. However, on the whole I would lean towards a smaller table, higher crown. Also, are you looking at these under jewelers lights? anything will look good in those conditions.

I was one that really liked smaller table cushions, but ended up getting a diamond with a larger table. It sparkles like crazy (in regular light) and I love it! I think performance varies diamond to diamond though.
