I am looking to buy a diamond for an engagement ring and my sweetheart prefers a marquise. I am looking for @ .85 to 1 carat. What are "good" dimensions for such a stone. The jeweler lists 3 numbers like 8.55 x 5.2 x 3.4. It's greek to me. also, how much does polish affect a stone especially when getting a "ideal" cut. Thirdly, how much does a role does florescence play into the look and sparkle, should I be concerned?
Thanks, Capt. Kirk
