I saw this in person and OMGOSH... the brilliance and the fire!
we looked at it through a 10x loupe and the feather is hairline and is VERY eye clean.
they gave me a copy of the EGL cert..
I just don''t know much about the proportions so can someone translate this..


1.61ct.
RB
color D
SI1
graining - nil
7.75-7.68 x 4.51mm
total depth - 58.5%
table width - 60%
crown height - 14%
pavilion depth - 43%
girdle thickness - thin, faceted

finish
polish - good to very good
symmetry - very good
culet - none
flourescence - none

comments:
PREMIUM CUT - the proportions of this diamond are within the tolerance of those of the Premium cut,
thus achieving a harmonious balance between proportions & the display of brilliance.

different EGL labs have different terms for cut quality I think.

Perhaps there is supa premium, Ideal, and even supa dupa ideal above this?

% crown and pavilion data are not good.
But this stone is obviously very good - the only real bad wactch out is I suspect the girdle might be dangerously thin if it is to be set in a ring in an exposed edge setting - insure it, or dont use 4 pronegshigh set etc

THANKS Garry
what would be roughly well proportioned % for crown and pavilion?

As far as the girdle issue, i actually brought it up to the jewelrist and she said that it should not be a problem.. I didn''t take her word for it though...
i guess thats why i''m here! thanks again

precision is not good. only 2 significant figures for %. angles are more precise.
