I started another string earlier but I am hoping to contact you via the forums with a question about the HCA calculator and the tendency for it to round up the table percentage on the results page. I will paste my original post. I wonder if the .5% makes much of a difference . Also, I would like to know what you think of the diamond below. I think I have ruled it out after talking to the more experienced members of the forum, but I would also like to know your opinion of this diamond since the HCA rates it a .9. Please see the original post below:
I inputted the specs into the HCA calculator of a diamond I am interested in. When I hit submit, it changes the table % rounding it up. I would like to know what everyone thinks of this diamond and any areas of concern you may have after seeing the specs. Also, I would like to know how the girdle will affect the performance of this diamond since it varies greatly from thin to thick. Will this girdle affect the HCA rate? I am guessing not since the girdle is not factored into the HCA calculator. Thanks
7.17 x 7.18 x 4.27mm
Fl - none
Crown angle 32.6
Pavillion angle 41.0
Girdle (faceted) 1.0-3.1% (will the thin part of this girdle be of concern when setting it?)
Please let me know how you think this will perform and if there are any areas that are not so great.
Thank you in advance for your time.
