    Hi

    I have been reading up on the ideal parameters for princess cut stones, and have a question about how table size affects the beauty of the stone.

    I have found a stone with all other parameters coming within the class 2a cut (as specified on this site) but the table is 82%.

    Here are the details:

    2.01ct
    7.37 x 7.11 x 4.8
    Depth: 67.5%
    Table: 82%
    Girdle: thin to slightly thick
    Polish: very good
    Symmetry: good
    Colour: G
    Clarity SI2
    No Flourescence

    Is this size table a problem?

    I am considering this stone against another which does fall within all the 2a cut parameters but is $1500 more expensive and is 1 colour better (F colour). Details are below:

    2.10 cts
    Colour F
    Clarity SI2
    Measurements: 7.54 x 7.22 x 4.96
    Depth: 68.7%
    table: 71%
    Polish Very Good
    Symmetry: good
    No flourescence
    Girdle: medium

    Is it worth me paying the extra $2500 to get a smaller table size? I'm not that bothered whether the colour is G or F so long as it looks white (they are both GIA stones so this shouldn't be a problem)

    Thanks

    FionaH

    Fiona,

    Only you can decide... Extra $1,500 is not for table size of course but for higher color and .09 carat weight.

    Diamonds with large table usually have less dispersion (fire).

    82% table sounds a bit too much but you really have to compare both stones to find out whether it worth spending extra $1,500.

    Since you're going to spend quite a bit of money, you might want to send both to David Atlas.
