Yowza! Is that puppy spread! Does it bark? It sure looks like it has the potential to be one of those dogs which just lays around the house! But what are the critical angles? The crown and pavilion angle measurements... Those are the real deciding factors and that is what you have to get from the vendor who is offering this stone for sale... People, if you learn nothing else from lurking here on PS please get this... You MUST know the critical angles of a diamond in order to really have an understanding of it's potential and those of us who you are asking to comment on stones MUST know that information as well in order to provide you with any more than a vague guess


By the way, Very Good polish and Very Good symmetry does NOT mean Very Good visual performance... The same goes for Excellent polish and Excellent symmetry... They are merely indications of how well the stone was polished and how consistent the shape and facet alignment of the diamond are... Most of the visual performance is controlled by the crown and pavilion angle measurements... Don't be fooled by those polish and symmetry ratings, they only tell a tiny, tiny bit of the story.

No, for a round diamond AGS defines the Ideal Table % range as 52.4-57.5, and although they do not consider Total Depth, a nice range is about 59.5-61.5% -

HOWEVER it is very important to know the crown/pavilion angles/% to get a better feel for the cut quality.
