    Thank you this looks great and I can't wait to use it. Do we have a way to check proportions for heart shaped diamonds? Thanks for advising. I love hearts and really one but have no idea what to look for in a pendant or earrings.

    Anything but Rounds falls into 'fancy' shapes, which don't (at this moment in time) have a set range of criteria within which one should stay to ensure best measured light performance.

    Fancies can be assessed to some degree by using ASETscope images (to understand leakage and cut accuracy) but they usually have to be bought on that mysterious and hard-to-define criterion of 'beauty' :)

    Sadly not yet. But I hope to be able to develop a system to work from actual 3D scans of diamonds as .stl file types.
    But even more sadly, it is almost impossible to scan the negative facets on a heart shape - the decollete or Vee indentation.

    OK thank you oohshiny looks like I need to a lot of reading and research. And you are right, the beauty is in the eye of the beholder. I love hearts and I really want to get one some day that is truly sparkly.

    Hi Garry that would be incredible!!! Please make it if you can. In the meantime, I will start learning all I can about hearts and welcome any tips.

    Here is an AGS digital ASET from a scan showing what I mean. The decollete is missing. There are ways to scan negative cavites but usually limited to about 15 degrees and this needs about 45 degrees.

    Thx AG, working on fancy shaped diamonds too. It would not be a cut grading system per se - but it would be a fabulous rejection system me thinks!
