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.

It's a beautiful ring and I love these blue diamonds with my emerald ring, or even just the blue diamond ring by itself. I agree though with the other reviewer. I wish the stones were bigger but fewer rather than the stones going all the way but only a few can be seen..
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Not the same as advertised!
I ordered this ring in red. I was very disapointed that the red was not the same color as advertised! The diamonds are so dark they are almost black! The only reason for purchasing was the bright red color. The rest of the ring is very nice although the settings are a bit uneven. If given the opportunity to exchange this for one that is closer to the advertisement, I would feel more confident in shopping for jewellery on TSC in the future, for the moment, I won't run the risk again.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Not a Keeper!
from Medicine Hat, Alberta
This ring doesn't do a thing for me, although I do like the filagree work. I previously purchased a blue diamond and silver ring (item 457-214) and got way more value for my money. This little one will just get lost amongst all my other rings and you can't even notice it on your finger. The stones are tiny and dull. It's not worth the money. What a disappointment! I received it today and it's going back today!

Not a hit
from thunder bay
If theres one thing i know real well its blue diamonds. I ordered this to go with my blue diamond white gold engagement ring. Most of my silver goes well so I was expecting a good match. Lets face it with the price of gold were stuck with silver. I don't mind because a well made silver ring lasts as long as a gold one. I recieved this ring and was so disappointed. The blue diamonds were in no way even close to the color of my ring. There dark and dull. The price of this silver ring with this low quality stones don't jive. I have been sending a lot of jewelry back because of this. TSC if your going to make silver rings and charge triple what silver is worth then at least have bright colorful stones to offset the overpricing.
larger stones would be great
tried to wear this with my wedding band, but not comfortable so I wear it alone. agree with others who have said that would have preferred a white setting for the colored stones, not black, they make the darker colors look even darker,,, also would have liked to see fewer but larger stones rather than go 3/4 of the way around that no one sees---next time I can afford it , I'll get another to stack,,,,love all the beautiful work on the side

I purchased this ring with black diamonds and I was not disappointed when I received the piece. I have no complaints about the colour, shape, setting or workmanship...I have had many compliments about how lovely the ring is and no one would guess that it was so reasonably priced.

I received the "brown" diamond ring. It is well made. The colour of the champagne diamonds is true to the picture, but the prongs are plated with yellow gold not rose gold as seen in the picture. Although it is a very nice ring, the coloring of the ring blends in so much with my skin that you hardly notice the ring at all unless it is in direct sunlight.

CHEAP and for a reason :(
I was so happy to receive this ring as it was such a great deal. BUT, it looks so nice on camera and not at all in person. I sent it back right away. It doesn't look expensive or even reasonable looking for the price. Sorry TSC!
