Hoping for reassurance about my round brilliant e ring!

Hello, I've been enjoying the wonderfully helpful comments on this site and finding it much less harsh than others I've been browsing. We ordered my engagement ring recently, now being set, and realised after purchasing that we hadn't done enough research into what all the measurements and scoring mean. I don't think we did badly, I think it's a nice ring, GIA triple excellent, and looked good to us in the store, but having since checked HCA (it got a 3.6) and read some criticism of steeper crowns, i'm a little worried in case we might have rushed into it.

We paid I think a pretty fair price, including the beautiful platinum setting it was £1980 from the jewellery quarter, so a shop but not high street.

(I really want to be able to relax and look forward to picking up the ring and stop obsessing over measurements I don't understand!)

thanks in advance!

You're fine.  I"ll let others talk about the HCA but I will say that the measure you're looking at, the 36 degree crown angle, is an average of 8 measurements that are taken using a machine called a Sarine where the stated accuracy is +/- 0.2.  That average is then rounded to the nearest 0.5.  What you 'want' is 34.5.  This is splitting hairs in a big way.  If you've seen the stone and love it, NOTHING that appears on that document outways THAT.
