We need more information but I don''t like how big that table is compared to depth. Is there a certificate? If so... who did it? Do you have a picture of it? If its GIA was is the cert #. What are the polish and the symmetry grades on it?

It is not a best example. That''s for sure.

It may look okay, but there are others which will look larger for the weight and have a smaller table which would allow more scintillation to occur around the crown''s perimeter. A smaller table is also said to allow more fire to be displayed.

especially not a 2.00 carat. it means that the cutter didnt have the weight to end the cutting and polishing job properly.
