You have gotten great advice from senior/trade members from this forum.
I don't know why you continue to disregard other members' inputs, not do homework (checking HCA, looking proportions) and pick obviously less than "ideal" diamonds.
The diamond is terrible.

Crown is way too low. You want 33.5-35 with complimentary pavilion angle. Usr Hca.

I want peoples opinion to the diamond other than someone telling me it is terrible because it did not show Excellent on the HCA tool. I want people to go beyond that. It is simple to do and I have done it, just think it is a piece of the puzzle.

I posted the same diamond yesterday but my picture was not clear enough therefore I reposted.

The crown angle is too low. Do you want a diamond that looks like a pancake from the side and has no fire?

These are measurements to help you stay in ideal cut territory with a GIA excellent cut stone.

table: 54-58

depth: 60-62.3

crown angle: 34-35.0

pavilion angle: 40.6-40.9 (sometimes 41.0 if the crown angle is close to 34)

Use these measurements. You will get more positive responses.
