"Your own personal preference may be for a diamond with an HCA score of 1.5 more rather than one with a lower score of say 0.5."

Is this a fire vs. brilliance thing? If so does lower = more fire or more brilliance.

My girlfriend has made very clear
that she wants a brilliant stone because too much color makes the diamond look fake to her, like crystal. Am I correct in thinking that a larger table would produce for brilliance and a smaller one less brilliance? I''m trying to find proportions to narrow down my search. Oh, and of course, she want''s the shine factor (scintillation?) to be 100 on a scale from 1 to 100
