What we sometimes call "superideals" are not cut to these numbers.

You can cut H&A on all sorts of proportions, and because a stone has them does not mean that it is an excellent stone.

HCA give is only a 4.6, with only fair for fire and scintillation.


You want and HCA score of under 2.0.

I noticed the HCA returns a different valve depending on whether the angle of the crown/pavillion or the % of the crown/pavillion is used. Which is more accurate? The angle or the %? Thanks!

Well, I thought you wanted >1.1 and around 5K, and I know you are not opposed to SI1
So I think these are better options:
http://www.whiteflash.com/round_ideal_cut/Round-Ideal-Cut-cut-diamond-183729.htm#
http://www.whiteflash.com/round_ideal_cut/Round-Ideal-Cut-cut-diamond-183725.htm#
http://www.whiteflash.com/round_ideal_cut/Round-Ideal-Cut-cut-diamond-183724.htm#

Plat is fine.
