So, a square stone which measure 7.7 from point to point will look bigger than anything which measures less than 7.7 in diameter, for instance a 6.5 mm round stone of 1Ct?Date: 2/28/2007 8:39:33 AM

a 13mm stone is going to look bigger than anything other than another 13mm stone.
I have seen stones of each of these proportions and the 7.7x7.7 princess dwarfs the 6.5mm round.Date: 2/28/2007 11:35:23 AM

Ok, now I thnk I see where you are. You mean the hypotenus of the right triangle formed by the corners of a square princess cut. Been a long time since high school math for me!Date: 2/28/2007 11:35:23 AM

I think Paul was having fun with geometry. A 7.70 mm square, tip to tip, appears smaller that a 6.50 round because it is, in fact, a smaller stone in terms of what you see on the grading report (5.50 mm is right BeaconDate: 2/28/2007 12:39:57 PM

Anyhow, to get a 7.7 hypotenus ( diagonal center line measurement) you need side measurements of about 5.5mm. Yes, that would look smaller, I think, than a 6.5mm round.

Heheh Gypsy, half of my files are you-related - get your ring already!
Now for the opposite... a 5.50x550 mm. round will visually appear smaller than a 5.50x5.50mm square...Date: 2/28/2007 1:27:00 PM
