It’s 58% deep, so I think you are good if he recommends less than 63%. 🙂

SwedishBee:  amora gems have higher and smaller crowns than round brilliant diamonds, so the percentages are going to be off when trying to calculate depth in comparison to a standard rpund brilliant. I’m sure the amora your looking at will be just fine! 58% depth is excellent with a hearts and arrows cut

To get the depth %, add Lenth + Width / 2 to get the average. Take the total depth and divide by this average, and multiply the decimal value result  by 100% to convert it to a percent value. D/ ((L+W)/2)x100% = depth%

The example is 57.8% which seems a bit shallow. I would shoot for 59%-62%. That is just me.
