can someone please give me an estimate of how much weight i would have to lose to get a diamond with a <2 hca score (but not necessarily ags000)?

is it possible to sometimes just remove a little depth without changing anything else (thereby decreasing carat weight, but not decreasing diameter)? if so does this stone seem like a candidate for that?

carat: 1.2
6.81 x 6.86 x 4.17
table: 60
depth: 61

More information is needed in order to estimate weight loss on recutting.
Crown and pavillion angles for each of the eight crown/pavillion angles is necessary as well as girdle thickness.

Question: What do you want to achieve?
How does your diamond look now?

I do not have crown & pavillion angles, but I can tell you that the girdle is medium- slightly thick.

I like the stone a lot now. in most lighting conditions it sparkles, we get lots of compliments on it, and it is certainly not a badly cut stone. I do think though that in some lighting conditions I can see a mild nailhead effect - I don't know for sure because I'm just basing this on what I've read here, but in some lighting the center looks slightly darker than the rest of the stone. i was thinking that maybe eliminating alittle bit of the depth would fix that. i've seen it next to an ideal cut stone and i did think that when seen together I did think the ideal cut one was ever so slightly "more sparkly" but i would not call the difference substantial. I would be possibly interested in having in recut just a little to fix the nailhead problem, but i'm not obsessed with getting an 8* or ags000, etc., because i want to lose as little diameter as possible while also trying to improve the way the stone reflects light.

any other advice/comments would be appreciated.
