    Have selected a diamond but the HCA score is .8
    Does stones that score under 1.0 (HCA) have poor real life performance? The vendor who has the stone tells me that it is a beautiful stone. Should I be concerned about the low score?
    Here are the details:
    1.41 G VS2 Round
    Depth:62.3%
    Table:56.0%
    Crown Angle:34.5°
    Pavilion Angle:40.6°
    Girdle:Slightly Thick
    Fluorescence:None

    I don't think you will have any issues. It looks very well cut and the percentages / angles look good to me.

    NO: Stones scoring under 1.0 on HCA do NOT have poor real life performance. That is a misconception.

    HCA however remains a rejection-tool. This stone passes that.

    But do ask your vendor how they managed to get black arrows in the arrows-view? I think this is human error, but do him the favor of alerting him.

    Live long,

    I also think it looks very nice and dont have any concerns with it.
