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.

Big bang for your buck!
I ordered the blue and white diamond ring on a Dazzling Deal sale reduced by $150, (with the intent of wearing it on my wedding ring finger when we travel). I was so pleased when I opened the box and saw the ring, it's gorgeous, well made and gives great coverage on the finger. The blue and white diamonds certainly do reflect the light nicely, (lots of glitter), and the ring is very comfortable to wear. I absolutely love it!
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Beautiful Blue Diamonds.
from Missisauga, ON
I opened the package with a friend and with both said, "Wow"! It is georgeous. I ordered the blue diamonds and I was not at all disappointed. I wear it with the other diamonelles that I have and it looks amazing. I have had 4 people ask me if I was rich, lol. Blue diamonds at the jewellery store are way beyond my budget.Thanks Shopping Channel.

By i forgot my password
from brampton, ON
i really like the green diamonds. when i wear the ring, it glitters on my hand. i dont care if the white diamonds arent the best quality, that was not what i was expecting. yes, some of the stones are not matched right and are not the same size or have a tiny scratch, but i dont care cuz its so glittery.at this price, you cant beat this ring. i will wear it everyday.
Such a disappointment.......the "white" diamonds were totally cloudy and grey so of course had no sparkle. Plus the ring I received had been worn and the silver was very scratched. This ring should have been discarded - not sold to another customer.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Blue Diamond Ring
I purchased this ring on December 24th. Now, it is on sale for $50. less. That is less than a month. The quality is very good, the diamonds sparkle a lot. I agree with other buyers. Why do these rings always have black. The coloured diamonds would look nice just in the colour, not the black.Now is the time to buy this one!!

Not what it seemed
from Montréal (Québec)
I couldn't wait to get this ring. I ordered the champagne. What a disapointement when I opened the box! The white diamonds are very cloudy and the champagne diamonds are crooked and not a good quality. I returned it the next day.

Ugly black rhodium distorts diamond colo
I was disappointed when I opened the package today. I had been looking forward to admiring my new ring! However, there is so much black rhodium plating on the ring that the blue diamonds look black - even under sunlight! I realize manufacturers do this because they're using such small stones - the plating "fills in the gaps" so to speak - but frankly, the black rhodium is unattractive and I do wish they'd stop using it so much. Now, I can't wait to send this ring back!

Sterling Silver Green & White Diamond Ri
I just recieved my Green and White Diamond Ring in the mail...that was fast too. The price is more than perfect for what looks like white gold and diamonds. Its beautiful...and I'm thinking about getting the blue diamond one. Order it ladies...you won't be disappointed...you'll love it as much as I do.
