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.

Don't Bother Buying
from Saanichton, BC
I recieved these earring as a gift, and thankfully they were the showstopper, so they were half the price. Even with that they look like cheap fashion jewellery. I have fashion earrings that look way better than these. They are very thin, and the diamonds don't even look like diamonds. Do not waste your money.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Par for the money

Very nice looking earrings. A little difficult at first to get done up. Overall worth the price.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I purchase these earrings as a Show Stopper.They are a nice looking pair of earrings and would have gotten a higher rating....but the snap downs are a little flimsy. This makes these earrings seem cheap.
Your site indicates 58 reviews but only one is printed! I had previously reviewed but will say again, these were not the quality I expected, they were thin and did not have a nice finish. I have ordered a lot of TSC jewellery and this was one of the most disappointing.
Greatest purchase I've made this Year!!!
By Happy Boyfriend
I bought these earrings as a gift for my girlfriend. I wasn't too keen on the rose gold but the yellow gold was sold out, but i'm glad I made the purchase. One my girlfriend was estatic because she had seen them earlier in the day and wanted to purchase them and two they added a class and confidence that only jewelry could achieve. Once again The Shopping Channel satisfies again because she won't take them off and I look great. Thanks Shopping Channel
would buy again
Bought these earrings for myself, in the silver and rose gold. Love them,they are very pretty and diamonds are substantual. Very noticable. Looks great with casual or dressed up.
Pretty but Disappointed
from Kitchener, ON
These earrings are very pretty and the Showstopper price was great! I was so disappointed that I could not open the clasps of the earrings without fear of breaking them. The clasps are so tight, that you need to use alot of force to open them, and I was not going to go through the hassle of even trying to get them in my ears. I returned them.
Love these earrings!
from Surrey, BC
These hoops with .25 ctw of diamonds sparkle without being over-the-top. They are just as described on TV. I have the rhodium & yellow gold plate pair so I find them the fastest to grab as they go with everything. Also like the infinity design when seen from a different angle. I gave 4 stars as they are a bit on the delicate side for handling.
I think this is lovely
I was happily surprized at my earrings: they sparkle, the gold and silver together are elegant; and I like the style. I like the left and right styling. Overall, this is a good purchase.
