We need a bit more information like crown angle, pavilion angle, and girdle thickness.

Ditto Coaties - welcome to Pricescope


Can you post the diameter, polish and symmetry also please? Does the setting have any diamonds or is it just a plain solitaire?

I would pass on this one as it is what we call a steep deep with the angles, this means the diamond can leak light and not sparkle as well as it could do. Look for crown angles of around 34 - 35 degrees and pavilion 40.6 - 41 and try to aim for the middle of this range where possible.

Sure, I will take a look for you ( not an expert though!)

Yes it looks good, with h&a diamonds ideally we would have hearts images in order to evaluate overall cut precision but I don't think the vendor provides them, but this diamond is definitely worth consideration.
