Hi,


I need to design a piece of jewellery and wondered if you can help.


Does anyone have or know were i can get a model of a diamond, or failing that the easiest way to create one.


Ideally i am looking for one which is 0.5CT in size, but i can always scale if not.


Any help on this will be appriciated


Thanks,


Craig

Also depends on the type of "cut" that your after



baggets? emerald cut? princess cut ? the most common being brilliant cut.

Hi,


Many thanks for the swift response.


I am after a brilliant cut of 0.5CT, to aid the design of a engagement ring for my partner.


I am lead to believe that the Dia is 5.2mm and the other sized are ratio'ed as in the graphic.

could be a hell of a lot better but it really need more good dimensioning especially for the center bit.

but its a good for representations
