PS - I think your full name might be on the pics with the diamond stats, you may want to edit to remove for privacy.

First of all, let me say you won''t recognize your diamonds.
I guess you couldn''t see a lot of fire before the recut with the large tables...
What a great choice to have your stones recut.
You can trust in Brian and Lesley.

I really love the proportions Brian will use to recut your two diamonds.
I had a diamond that was cut the same way.
(HRD 0.64ct - 58% table - 14% crown - 43% pavilion - 59.5% total depth)
It was amazingly alive and looked bigger from a 3-4m distance than another 1.15 H&A.

Just one question: the prerecut Sarin mentions a 66% star.
What star length will Brian use?
On such proportions, 60% (or more) could be magnificent!

Congratulations!
