    can someone prioritize depth, table, pavillion, crown, etc. dimentions when pricing a diamond. eg if depth and table fall into 2a, but pavillion less so, how should that weigh in on price of diamond

    next question: ive had a problem finding a jeweler that has a sarin machine-is this unusual

    A diamond will look the best with certain sets of cooperating dimensions. Don't get lost looking at partial statistics. If everything is in the 2A range except one parameter, then one must see how much out of the range is that one parameter is. A thin girdle is far less of a visual problem than a shallow crown. A thin girlde relates more to durability than visual grading. Some "faults" relate more to visual situations than durability. You can't make a firm judgement on how the stone would look by the numbers, but the numbers WILL help you find potentially better looking stones.

    The EYES are the key ingredient. Practive looking. Be aware of the lighting differences. Take the diamond outside in daylight to really see it as it will be most commonly seen.
