My Overall Score is a measure combining a number of factors including:

  • the AGS cut guidelines potential cut grade; What is AGS? See this article;
  • how confident I am that the recipient will absolutely love love love the diamond;
  • good contrast
  • optical precision
  • the value I believe it represents;
  • must be deemed eye-clean by me;
  • how well it fits the brief.

I tend to recommend 6 prong settings over 4 prong settings as there are more instances of recipients returning 4 prongs in favor of 6 prongs than vice versa. Reasons cited include six prongs giving the appearance of a more secure hold on the diamond, as well as looking more rounded with a crown-like appearance.
