Dear Sir,

I've read through the tutorial, really amazing introduction, thank you for your kind work. i compared carefully between the worst case you presented for AGS 0 ,Tolkowsky Ideal and also with the stone I plan to buy,
following table is the comparison.

Table / Crown Angle / Pavilion Angle / Pavilion %
The Worst AGS 0 57 35.8 41.25
Tolkowsky Ideal 53 34.5 40.75 43.1
The one I found 55 34.2 41.2 43.4

you see, the difference is not too much, at least for such layman like me. Would you give me some advise on the diamond I find comparing with the ideal cut defined in your theory? Thank you very much!

If this chart comes out you will see how critical the small increase in pavilion angle has on the stone you are considering.
Have you discovered HCA yet? - the third link at the top - Cut Adviser.

Sorry the chart did not come out, but if you would like to read more detail then www.diamond-cut.com.au will bore you to tears:)
