This stone scores a TIC of 0.8 and is excellent on all counts. The report says between 1-2 is better for rings but how is that so if everything is excellent?

Please share your thoughts on this stone.

GIA and HCA report below. Thanks!

This stone is very slightly shallow but the combined crown angle and pavilion angle work really well together.
The diamond will tend to brighter brilliance with a little less fire than a diamond with a crown around 34.5-36 degrees.
It has a great spread. No reason not to use it in a ring.

Thanks for your reply. Would the slight difference in fire be that obvious? What is your opinion on the inclusions and the placement? Thanks!

It is not appropriate for me to discuss individual diamonds, only general educational features.
