L/W = 1.000 T/W = 0.367 T/L = 0.367 P/W = 0.435 C/W = 0.240 H/W = (P+C)/W+0.02 = 0.695 P/H = 0.625 C/H = 0.346 Vol./W^3 = 0.241

Addition # 10 – This is another good earring design for lightly saturated materials. This is easy and fast to cut. I like it in Rose de France. Cut in refractive indexes 1.54 to 2.14 with not changes.
