Hi Celtic,

Can you get ASET or Idealscope images for these please? I take it you specifically want a FIC?

40.2 is a bit shallow on the pavilion there might be obstruction issues.
40.5 would be better.

ditto the need for IS/ASET images

I don''t think so because the diamond are from bluenile.
see if one of the other PS vendors can get them in but I would consider moving up a bit in pavilion angle.

In that case images aren''t possible as you say and I would really like to see images for each.

Good idea, and or see if you can find some with a pavilion angle which is a bit steeper, 40.6 or less but not as low as 40.2 preferably.

I will see if I can find them!

I think these are the ones,

50-56 table
40.6P C Range 35-36
40.5P C Range 35.5-37
40.4P C Range 36.5-38 or even higher
long lower girdles 79-80+% is good.
Depth will be a little deeper than tolk out to around 63-63.5 on some.
Face up optical symmetry helps
A good FIC will score on cut: GIA VG and AGS1 or sometimes 2, some but very few of them will score ags0.

I have an FIC.

They are nice, and I might or might not target one again.

But...I''d sooner target AGS0.

And I wouldn''t take a D to get one (or a lower color past some specified point).

So I would just clarify or reconsider your order of priorities in searching options...
