The Table

Even with proper pavilion angles, a large table caused by 
high crown angles will display a fish-eye

Image of dispersion

The area of dispersion is severely limited by the large table, and the small surrounding crown facets.

The upper stone has proper 34.5 degrees angles, displaying a richer amount of dispersion compared to the flat crown pictured below it. The arrows represent white light.

The table is the most important single facet on the diamond. If too large, it decreases the size of the surrounding crown facets (the crown mains, stars and upper girdle facets) and as a result it reduces the area where much of the dispersion occurs. If it's too small, the amount of light entering the stone is limited, resulting in less dispersion. Even with proper angles on the bottom of the diamond a very large table can produce a fish-eye, as shown in the following illustration:

   Timepieces can be a trendy market but we have the knowledge and experience to bid quotes that satisfy our sellers and leave a small profit to run our business. We are not watch snobs so we have expanded broadly outside of the typical "we only buy Patek, Rolex and Cartier" mentality.
