Sadly, there is no perfect ratio; there will always be compromises. I posted
an .inc file for Tolkowsky's Brilliant cut diamond here, almost a year ago.
Actually, a few other diamonds were posted April-June last year in p.b.i.
Use the Google site search to find them.

Here's a link to my brilliant.inc

Or, if you prefer, http://tinyurl.com/zhxd2

I built it after reading this:

http://www.folds.net/diamond_design/index.html ,which contains the complete
text of Tolkowsky's 1919 classic groundbreaking work.

Beware of raytracing diamonds. They will suck all the power out of your CPU.
:) Keep max_trace_level as high as you can afford, use severe antialiasing,
and lots of photons and dispersion_samples. Have fun!
