I've been looking at this diamond and ran it through HCA and got a 2.7. Should I consider looking elsewhere?

Round
6.91x6.94x4.30
1.28, E, VVS1
Depth 62.1%
Table 57%
Crown 35.5%
Pavilion 40.8%

Does the crown/pavilion angles go well together or will there be a lot of light leakage? At CA 35% it would of gotten a HCA of 1.7. Does it really make that much of a difference???

My goal is to get a diamond with these specs.
Round
D-F
VS1+
1.3+ Cararts
None of Faint Florescence(a blue glow sounds cool but i heard it could get hazy)
$14k

I understand that VS2+ are eye clean but the moms have told me to get something cleaner and I'd rather not have to listen to that crap the rest of my life. Pinpoints have basically been the only thing that they don't mind.

Please lend me your knowledge.

To many of us, yes.

35.5/40.8 can be great Or not so great. GIA rounds the numbers. So if the actual numbers are more like 35.3/40.7 it should be alright. If it is 35.7/40.89(40.9), not great. Try HCA with these numbers.

You need the idealscope image. Overall, 35.5/40.8 is not a combo I recommend. 35.5/40.6 is better.
