The Four Cs of Diamonds
CUT: The cut is a diamond's most important characteristic. The way a diamond is cut affects how it handles light and has great influence on the diamond's overall sparkle. The closer to ideal proportions that a diamond is cut, the more light will reflect back to the eye, resulting in the fire and brilliance that make diamonds so beautiful and so popular. Shallow or deep cuts allow light to seep out of the bottom or escape out of the side.
COLOUR: Diamonds with absolutely no colour are extremely rare. Colour actually refers to a diamond's lack of colour with D being perfectly colourless. The subtle differences in colour among most gem-quality diamonds are due to traces of other elements that were present during the diamond’s formation millions of years ago. Diamonds are rated on a letter scale indicating the degree of yellowish tinge from D all the way to Z, which is markedly yellowy. E and F are colourless to the naked eye, and G, H and I will appear very nearly colourless, particularly in a gold setting. After cut, colour is generally considered the second most important characteristic when selecting a diamond.
While the fire of perfectly colourless diamonds will never go out of style, modern jewellers and jewellery lovers have discovered the incredible beauty of coloured diamonds in gorgeous shades of blue, green, pink, chocolate and even black, and may people prize yellow (or "canary") diamonds for their luminous colour.
CLARITY: Diamonds usually contain "inclusions", which are small markers of how the diamond formed deep within the earth. Very few diamonds are without inclusions, and such stones are termed "flawless." Inclusions do not necessarily affect beauty, but they do affect value. Many imperfections are microscopic and those with the least and smallest imperfections receive the highest clarity grades.

A bit disappointing!
By J Louie
from near Edmonton
I was quite disappointed when I received these rings. When stacked together, they don't look too bad, but if they are worn alone, they are almost non-existant. I probably should have sent them back, but decided to keep them. The red is hardly distinguishable, as is the blue. Too bad, they looked great on TV.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

a little disappointing
I loved the look of these rings on TV. However when delivered, quite disappointing to see how tiny the stones are. The rings keep turning around on my finger, so the stones are not aligned most of the time. The rings are pretty for the price.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
5 diamond Stackable rings
from Grimsby (Ont)
They are o.k. and I do wear them, but I was disappointed in them. The sparkle was so intense on screen, and yet the diamond chips are actually so very, very tiny, (almost non-existent) that there is in reality no sparkle at all. As for price, very high considering the appearance. I for one regret the purchase-- I have worn them several days in a row, and not a comment has ever been made, that speaks volumes. They are on the finger, but certainly do no stand out like some of my larger stone rings.

When all 5 rings are wore together it looks like a very impresive large diamond ring! Mine is the green diamond set. I just got it yesterday and I couldn't be happier.They sparkle like you expect from good quality diamonds. I have larger diamonds that do not look nearly as beautiful as these diamonds. In my opinion, these are excellent quality diamonds, as long as you are not looking for a HUGE diamond, you will be happy with this set.

from Port Colborne ON
I was so excited about these rings but when they came, I was in shock at how small the yellow stones were. In fact, I had to carefully check to be sure that all the stones were there. Not much flash or sparkle. The black diamond bands are lovely and really I should have returned them. I don't think they are worth the price paid.,

Not What I Expected
I bought the red and white stacked rings after seeing them on TV. Loved the colour and the fact that I could wear them with other rings I own if I chose to. Disappointed with the flat colour. Ended up returning rings.

Wow this was a let down - I was so looking forward to getting this and when it came it was just so small and delicate...diamonds almost invisible they are so small. Returning.

As a blue diamond lover, I was really looking forward to receiving this set, however, you could barely notice the blue diamonds. I guess you get what you pay for. They were so dull and cheap looking, they were mailed back the same day I received them.
