Sorry if this has been asked before - I couldn''t find anything related in my searches...

I have a Megascope reading on a diamond, and I''m wondering about one detail in particular:

diam. (7.70 - 7.83) x 4.48

If I understand properly, the (7.70 - 7.83) reading means that at its largest diameter the stone is 7.83mm and at its smallest, 7.70mm.

Assuming that this interpretation is correct, is this range bad? I have seen a lot of these numbers posted by others, but I have never seen range as large as .13mm. The diamond scores a 2 on the HCA and is otherwise very nice (price, appearance, etc.). Perhaps I''m over-analyzing ...

If it matters, here are the rest of the Megascope stats:

1.63 carat
crown angle: 30.9
pavil angle: 40.4
table: 58.2%
depth: 57.7%
culet: .8%
girdle (1.0 - 2.1%)

I''d would greatly appreciate any insight on this. Thanks!

Usually I prefer diameters with a range of +/- 0.08mm... If the stone, as well as the price, is right, then buy it... Noone will notice this variations, once the diamond is set...
BTW, the stone looks a bit shallow...
