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.

I purchased it on sale and what a bargain. I continue to receive comments on the ring when I wear it. I can't believe the diamonds in it and I have really good ones, clear and bright in the ring. I really like my bling bling ring. I have larger size hands so it fits nicely, on smaller hands it may overwhelm them.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Received what I paid for
from Ottawa, ON
The ring in itself was lovely fit great and felt good. Wish it was in diamonelle.
from London, Ontario
I originally purchased this piece when it was a Showstopper and returned it as a couple of the stones were obviously smaller and darker than the others. Regretfully, l returned it. When l saw it at this low price l decided to give it another go. Very happy l did. It is well worth the money - not the best stones but for the money it is an amazing deal!

Love this statement ring
from PARRY SOUND
Just received this ring this week & have been wearing it ever since.The photos on the web-site don't do it justice. Mine has a beautiful sparkle & the gold-plating shines nicely.Yes the diamonds aren't as clear as some of my other pieces (you can't tell without looking closely), but it's a nice statement ring & boasts a full carat of diamonds.It definately looks far more expensive than the price paid.Many thanks to TSC for providing lovely, affordable jewellery for all. Not everyone has thousands to spend.

Nice for the price!
from Nova Scotia
Glad I didn't pay full price because of the low quality diamonds but for the sale price I will enjoy wearing it. It has a big presence on your finger!
I bought this ring on sale. I wear it on my middle finger and it looks great. What a buy.
from Crossfield, Alberta
I am very pleased with my ring. I have no complaints. It sparkles beautifully. I did clean it as was suggested by other reviewers. I ordered my regular size and even tho it is a large ring, it fits like a small one as the size of the underside is narrow which also makes it very comfortable. I must have gotten one of the better ones.
I was one of the fortunate ones who got a ring without too many gray or cloudy stones. I chose the rhodium finish. My ring has some sparkle in sunlight or bright flourescents. I2-I3 as an inclusion rating on a diamond means the stones will have cracks or cloudiness VISIBLE to the naked eye. The IJ colour rating is on the edge of the white colour rating.I ordered up a size because the ring is so wide but I shouldn't have because the back of the ring isn't very wide. The dazzling deal price makes this ring a reasonable price.
By love my gold
The diamonds are not very bright but the gold makes up for it. It is a nice ring, very shiny and 1ct of diamonds. Great price.
