I'm looking for something with tons of fire and scintillation. How does this one hold up:

Depth: 63.1%
Table: 56%
Crown Angle: 37.0 degrees
Pavilion Angle: 40.2 degrees

1.6 HCA (FIC)

Weight: 0.92 carats
Color: I
Clarity: SI1 (eye clean)
Cut: Very Good
Polish: Very Good
Symmetry: Excellent
Florescence: None


Will this be a sparkle filled stone? Are there better ones out there for 4 - 5k?

Any advice would be appreciated.

It will definitely have a smaller diameter compared with a similar but more balance cut of a TIC. With that pavilion angle, there is a probability that there will be obstruction issue, Idealscope image will be useful to see if it is present. Also, FIC generally is slightly darker than a TIC, some prefer it as a trade off for better fire performance, but for a 1st stone, I would not recommend it.

Notice the smaller diameter of the 0.92c compared to the 0.90c stone?

The 0.89c stone I posted has the same/slightly larger diameter as the 0.90c stone. The 0.88c star129 has the same diameter as your 0.92c stone.

This is typically what a star129 looks like.

What are the advantages of a larger diameter? The most important thing to me is the scintillation and fire.

a larger diameter looks larger because it is larger!
