Can someone please help me review this diamond based on its proportion? The only thing that worries me is that the Crown Angel is lower than what i want at 33.1 and the Pavilion Angle is a little higher than what i want at 41.1. Should i be concerned about these angle falling out the optimal range? This is a AGS Tripe 0. WF has an ACA diamond that im also considering that is imaculate for an additional $2,000. I'm not sure if i should upgrade and get the ACA or stick with this. Thanks for all the help everyone.

It is hard to say without looking at images of it. I don't know if you have looked on JA at all, but I have posted some here below that look really promising. If you call them their gemologist will evaluate 3 stones for you and tell you which one is the best without the obligation to buy. You can also request asset images, I bought my diamond from them and they were a pleasure to work with :appl:

Thanks for the help Farmer Gal. I'm planning on going to WhiteFlash to check out the diamond in person this Friday. I was just curious as whether the Crown and Pavilion Angle is still acceptable/ideal given that it falls outside the optimal range that i've been seeing with BN Signature Ideal and WF ACA ranges.


I guess a better question would be, Is a round diamond with Crown Angle: 33.1 and Pavilion Angle: 41.1 still be an ideal diamond? or is that a bad angle combination?

If AGS says it has ideal light performance, then I am sure it is a pretty stone. But I personally do not like flatter crowns and stick to the 34-35% crown angles that you will more likely see in the WF stone. Lucky you to get to go there in person!
