    Hi, Bert. This is a subject that there is not much agreement on 🙂 If you know any jewelers, you might ask them their opinion. I think there is pretty general agreement that the 0.3mm usually specified for USFG competition is too narrow for settings. I personally tend to have thicker girdles on larger stones. If there are no other constraints, I cut until it “looks right” to me.
