Please help with this stone, thanks in advance!
Measurement: 7.50-7.54X4.67 mm
Weight:1.60 carats
Propotions:
Depth percentage:62.1%
Table: 54%
Culet size: None
Crown Angle: 34.7%
Pavilion Depth:43.3%
Girdle thickness: Thin to medium, Faceted.

I tried to use Holloway Cut Adviser to caculate the cut but it just simply said that the depth percentage must be wrong or the girdle is dangrously thin.
( According to the GIA report, the polish and symmetry both are excellent.) Gee,I am really a maths idiot and sorry for the newbee question.

Thanks a lot!


My bad. Pavilion angle and pavilion% are not the same. OOOOOps, silly me.

Factor Grade
Light Return Excellent
Fire Very Good
Scintillation Very Good
Spread
or diameter for weight Very Good
Total Visual Performance 1.8 - Excellent
within TIC range

Turns out great!!!
Sorry for the silly mistake. Webmaster, could you please delete this post for me? I feel i am back to 2nd grade again.

Are you sure the number you have for the crown is an Angle or a % ? If it's an angle, I come with 1.8 on the HCA, using crown Angle of 34.7 and pavilion % of 43.3. You have to change the pavillion input from Angle to %.

Numbers look alright. Now all we need is a light reflector (IS or ASET) image :)

Do you have the crown/pavillion angles rather than the percentages? They are supposed to be more accurate for the HCA.

Thanks a lot for all the inputs.
I've already ordered the ring and it will land tomorrow. It is a T&Co. ring from S&P and I am so so so excited now.

Patience finally paid off and I am going to get my dream ring! (Will take it to the store to resize it and maybe pay them to reappraised it.) It is so good to find such a beautiful stone without paying the mark up.

Again,I'd like to thank pricescope for the education and the nice people here who always are willing to offer help.

woo hoo. I suspected it was a T&Co. Their grading always lists crown angle/depth percentage. Signed Pieces rules! Congrats

Whatmeworry, thank you!

I''ve been coveting the original T-style setting for so long. Can''t wait to see the ring!

Can''t agree more that SP absolutely rules!!!

Thanks

It's a I VS-1 round stone. Personally I think it is a great size,color and clarity combo.
Usually you pay 30% off the T&Co. retail price when you buy it from SP. If you need more detailed information, you can always contact SP. They are very professional and always willing to help.

You may also want to check Jewels' thread out. ( https://www.pricescope.com/community/threads/my-tiffany-co-ring.53430/ ) I was inspired by her experience and saved big. (Almost bought a full price one right before V-day! Gee~
)

Wish you good luck!

PS: mcblohe, the whole process invloved a lot of patience and that was the major issue to me.




Kcoursolle, that's all the information I have. Sounds like a wonderful stone and can't wait to see it in person.

Jessica, thank you for the warm words and I will post pictures later.

Oooh.... a T&Co. Fantastic. And you got it from SP ...

Can't wait to see the picture. Congratulations!!!

I wouldn't worry about an I colour, especially if it's well cut (as the proportions seem to suggest) and it's set in something like a platinum T&Co original - it'll look gorgeous face up (or in any profile really!!!). Someone is going to be very happy...

Tanalasta,thank you! I am fine with the I color too. I once had a J color H&A stone and it looks great. The key is the cut. Glad to find such a well-cut stone with the discount price. Will post picture later and thank you all for the advices!

I got the ring last Friday and it is breathtaking.
Thank PS, without the info here i couldn''t find SP and most likely would ended with a much smaller stone with the same quality from T&Co.
David, Issac are great to work with. Two thumbs up!

Thank you Kaleigh! Sure thing!
I sent the ring back to Tstore to resize and reappraise. Need to wait for another 3 weeks(i am counting each day now!
) and definitely will post tons of pics later then.
