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.

This ring is beautiful but the color is not as blue as the pic, more of a green/blue. It is amazing though, very sparkly, very comfortable with a lovely under gallery.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

from Peterborough, ON
I bought the blue diamond ring! I couldn't believe my eyes when I opened the box. The blue is incredible and the ring is so expensive looking! I have had so many comments on it and eveyone things I paid at least 10 times what I did. Nothing in the stores can compare for this price! Just love the shopping channel for my first one carat diamond ring!!!
I bought this ring in the blue diamonds. Whenever I wear it I have so many compliments.When I told a select few that it was real and what it cost they were shocked. Each thought it looked at these 10 X's more expensive.This is a keeper!

I bought this ring when it was a showstopper in the red and the blue. I was not impressed with the colour of the red and found the only time it sparkled at all was in direct sunlight. The blue diamond ring was much nicer and had more sparkle and I was going to keep it, but it kept spinning on my finger, so that the stones were always in my palm. I have a beautiful blue and white diamond ring, a band style without the black rhodium that I paid less $ for and it is beautiful. Diamond is my birthstone, so I love them in all shapes, colours and sizes, in gold silver or whatever!!!.In my opinion, the black rhodium is put there to camoflage the poor colour match and quality of the diamonds. Don't get me wrong, I did not expect to get high quality diamonds at this price, but the fact that the ring were not balanced and the setting kept catching on things, made my decision to return them, a very easy one. There was nothing about the rings that could justify my keeping them. These are definitely not the diamonds I'm dreaming of. regards and happy holidays, carolyn
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
I like this ring very much
I wear it everyday on my middle finger. It is a lovely ring, however I wish it was a little lower to the finger as it will probly catch on my gloves.
I am very happy with this purchase! Pretty ring, ordered the blue dimonds, they are not perfect but the color is amazing, lots of sparkle and the showstopper price was right.

Wanted to love this ring
By Cheese Lady

I was very disappointed with the quality of the Green Diamond ring; it arrived with a stone missing. I know that these things happen, but there was such a large gap that wearing it was not a possibility. I may try to order another product, as the reviews do not reflect my experience.
from Mount Pearl, Newfoundland
I have not worn my ring yet but it is very pretty. It sparkles a little and is quite nice. No issues. I think it's worth the money.
i LOVED THE BLUE DIAMONDS,BUT WOULD LIKE A LITTLE LESS BLACK.i COULD,NT GET MY SIZE 5 OR 6, BUT THOUGHT IT WOULD FIT MIDDLE FINGER.iT KEPT TWIRRLING AS IT,S TOP HEAVY.iT MIGHT WORK IF IT WAS TIGHT,BUT SADLEY I DON,T KNOW. WISH SOMEONE WOULD SEND BACK A BLUE EARRING.
I am absolutely delighted with my blue diamonds. Have shopped around the retail dealers, but NOTHING can compare to this ring; the colour is spectular and the price can not be beat. I wish to congratulate "Diamonds in Silver" for the outstanding design and unbeatable price. "BRAVO ZULU" (that's a naval term!!) for a job well done.
