Have any of you ever used rare carat to find a diamond? They seem to find diamonds with better prices than some venders.

I used RareCarat to find my vendor but ultimately went with a diamond that was on the vendor site but not Rarecarats search engine.

I didn't realise RareCarat had an MMD search engine!

This is super useful, thank you for posting! :))

I'll mention it on the MMD sellers thread!

I have had fun playing around with their search engine, but as of now have yet to transition from playing around to resulting in an actual purchase through them.

I wish I knew more about what crown and pavilion angle to search for!
My understanding of the basic "guidelines" for modern round brilliant cuts is as follows:

Table: 54-57 (up to 58 possible)

Depth: 60-62.3

Crown angle: 34-35 (35.5 may with with a pavillion angle closer to 40.6)

Pavillion angle: 40.6-40.9 (up to 41 may work if the crown angle is close to 34)

Angles falling within these parameters does not of course guarantee a diamond with great optics, but tend to be a good starting point.

Once upon a time I believed that a diamond with angles falling in these ranges in addition to an HCA score of 2 or under would always yield superior optics and performance, but am learning this is not always the case.
