All these numbers are fine, really.Date: 4/12/2007 2:38:51 PM
I hope you don''t mind all the questions, but here are a few more for ya(if you have time):
1. Do you like these dimensions (they are taken from the H, SI1 sarin report:
Total depth: 61.6
Crown Angle: 34.3
Pav Angle: 41.02 (little deep???)
Crown %: 15.1
Pav %: 43.4
Length Girdle Facet: 76.5
Also, GOG reports that the SI1 is eyeclean, is there any reason to look for a VS2 in your opinion??
Plus: I have read that total depth should not exceed 61%: What do you think of this ''rule''?
Please, I wrote a chapter in the book of OCD.Date: 4/12/2007 2:54:47 PM
Thanks so much, Ellen. I know I am being OCD, but would the better Pav Angle be any reason to purchase the other stone?
I''m not sure how it determines the different categories, but at this point, you don''t need the HCA. That is really for weeding out the less desirables, then one should go on to get more info on the stones they like (which you have). It can''t truly know how well a stone is cut, there''s a lot more to it than plugging those numbers in.Date: 4/12/2007 3:03:04 PM
Another interesting question I have: Both of these stones rec''d a 1.5 on the HCA, but got different catergories.
The H VS was 1.5 X, X, X, VG
While the H, SI1 was a 1.5 X, VG, VG, VG
Yes. GOG has a 30 day return policy and beautiful stones. Save 1k and return it if for some reason it doesn''t meet your expectations. It will be stunning in person!Date: 4/15/2007 5:02:56 PM
Hi, Ellen. I''m hollerin''! All weekend I''ve been thinking that maybe I should wait and get a G, VS2 just for peace of mind. Am I just being paranoid?

ditto, the cut quality determines light performance. *Sometimes* when a stone is very lower clarity, like I1-I2 or has a large cloud, light performance might be impaired.Date: 4/16/2007 10:26:24 PM
An H will not effect light performance.
