crown and pavilion angles would be very helpful. you can utilize HCA.

Its pretty much a dead heat finish. The small difffermce between the stones is indicated by the price and the sum of the grading and parameters. If you looked at both of them, side-by-side, you might have a slight preference for one over the other for a subjective reason or a feeling. Any real difference is nominal mor than likely.

ditto that. you''re only scratching the surface as far as comparisons go. you really need the crown/pavilion angles to see where the real differences lie.

The missing angles for the 3.01 I color diamond are 33 degrees for the upper and 40 degress for the other lower angle. I did the HCA test and it came out to be a 2.0. I dont have the other information for the other diamond. Are these diamonds worth purchasing? Thanks

Maybe, but need more exact information. Can you post the more specific cown/pavillion angles for the I diamond and perhaps contact the vendor for the crown/pavillion for the second one? Personally though, I''d keep the the table between 54-57...53 is a tad small.

Bryce, look on the GIA reports on the diamond diagram, you should see the crown and pavillion angles there.

Hi Lady Lorelei
It sounds as though the second diamond may be an older GIA report, thus no proportions information (?) If so, Bryce you might try GIA report check - linked below. Enter the grading report number and the carat weight the proportions information may be available, depending on how recently it was graded:

Hi Sir John!


Good point, could indeed be an older GIA report!
