If by stability, you mean the fit in the ring , the dimensions shouldn’t really have anything to do with it as long as the jeweler sets it correctly. As for having a shallow diamond, if it’s too shallow, the light would escape and you wouldn’t get the sparkling that you described. Some ppl like the more shallow diamonds because they are more fiery. If anything I don’t think a reputable jeweler would sell a poorly cut diamond so you should be okay in that regard.

It has fire and sparkle so worry not. Some stones (like Daussi cushions) are intentionally cut shallow.

I actually like a shallower cut. I adore my diamond but if I could change one thing it would be its depth. It’s an omc and 2.4ct but faces up like a 2. My friend also has an omc and its 1.30ct but looks massive due to the shallow cut. It’s quite white and sparkles like mad. I wouldnt worry about yours. It will be beautiful im sure.

bluehope:  ooh, you’ve got a heart cut! I’m so used to everyone with RBs, emeralds, pears & princesses. It’s nice to see something different.

I’m not sure what to suggest when it comes to cuts like this one. Normally you’d have to worry about the crown and pavillion angles and having a too thin girdle. I don’t know if I could apply the same knowledge here.

Try asking about this on the PriceScope forums. There are a bunch of jewelers on there that could answer your questions.

I say, you have a beautiful and unusual ring – focus on that and on what it symbolizes, rather than the little technicalities! Especially since you couldn’t even tell it had a shallower cut until you looked at the certification papers. Maybe make sure you have some kind of guarantee against the diamond ever breaking, if you’re really worried about that.

My Fiance found a simple, yet very unusual vintage solitaire to surprise me with. Being a former jewelry store employee, I can see that the diamond’s cut is a bit shallow and the clarity isn’t the best. But I LOVE the cut and band design, and the fact that she picked it out for me knowing how well the design fit for us, so I’ve worked to take my diamond-salesperson side out of that equation and just treasure it as the ring she gave me.

I mean it’s all about perspective. Might it sparkle a bit more if it had more depth? Maybe, I don’t know how heart cuts respond to changes in cut. But the important thing is, you have a beautiful rock that you love. I wouldn’t worry about it being “on paper” perfect, especially since it’s a unique cut.
