The Eightstar is cut for ideal *optical* symmetry and thus *may* not have *excellent* symmetry per GIA. Mine is listed as *very good* symmetry and polish. If it were graded similarly by AGS it would not be an AGS 000. But it is an Eightstar which means it is cut for no light leakage. As has been argued many times, that does not make it necessarily the *best*. As stated above some prefer H&A or straight AGS ideal. Eightstars and H&A's are among the best cuts available.The Rodentman

This diamond wouldn't score better than 4 (not better than good) on HCA.It doesn't mean that you shouldn't consider it for purchase if you like it and the price is right.Eight Star diamonds are cut for special optical performance and some people like its special look. Other folks prefer other types of Hearts and Arrows or just ideal cut diamonds. You should look at different diamonds and decide for yourself what is the best for you.
