No. No. No. No. That CA is a huge deal breaker.

Stats:

Crown: 33.5-35 (33.5 only in case of 60/60 stones though)
Pavilion: 40.6-40.8
Table: 60 or less
Depth: 62.3 or less.

Also, needs to score 2 or under on HCA. This is a pass fail rejection tool. You still need the stats above, and preferrably an idealscope.

Thanks for quick reply. HCA score is 1.1
I am also hesitant because of CA.
What about this one 60/60

Okay so, you seem to only be processing HALF of the equation.

HCA is only a rough tool that makes a rudimentary evaluation based on 4 data points. IT IS NOT A SELECTION TOOL.

You do not say "HCA IS UNDER TWO SO THAT MEANS IT IS A GOOD STONE."

NO.

You need the proportions on the WHOLE STONE. That CA isn't just bad. It's a FLAT TOP DIAMOND. It's really bad. HCA is irrelevant at that point. AND it's a 60/60 stone (59/59 is still a 60/60).

You do not need IF clarity. Drop down to VS1 and concentrate on cut. IF and VS1 are indistinguishable. Seriously. Without a loupe and GOOD eyesight they are the same.


I don't even understand WHY, after I posted the ranges for the dimensions of the stone you should be looking at you EVEN would post this one for consideration.

Does it fall in the ranges I posted above?

No. End of inquiry.

Why would you ask for advice then ignore it?


IF is a flat out waste of money.
