Does the Holloway Cut Advisor only work for rounds? I would like to use it for a marquise. If it doesn't work for marquise, does anyone know of a cut advisor for fancies?

HCA only works for rounds. For fancy shapes, you can use Dave Atlas's cut grades: https://www.pricescope.com/tutor_fnc3.asp

If you can look at the diamonds you are purchasing either in a brick and mortar store or by checking what you order online, you can buy an ideal scope. http://www.rockytalky.com/idealscope_indx.asp

You can also have purchases sent to Dave Atlas at www.gemappraisers.com. He is an independent appraiser and has/sells ideal scopes as well. Some vendors will send stones to him before you even pay for them. Others will require you to pay first, so make sure that there is a good return policy. Fancy shapes really have to be seen. It's much harder to go by numbers with them.
