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 was my first purchase from Eva LaRue and likely won't be my last. I,too, was very taken with Eva's philosophy of life and it prompted me to take a closer look at her creations. I reallyappreciate her symbolism.I possess a number of dangle earrings but needed a pair of studs, as I have a baby granddaughter who's fond of grasping shiny objects.These earrings fit the bill.They're a generous size for this type of earring and the rose gold plating is a lovely colour and appears to be of good quality. The overall designis very appealing.All in all, a perfect "go to" pair of earrings.
Love these earrings
from Hamilton, Ontario
I received these ear rings yesterday and have had them on since they arrived. They are so pretty and light. I ordered the yellow and white and wish I had ordered all of them. I love them. They arrive in great packaging also and are a real treat to receive. Keep it up Eva...very good job. Workmanship is great,
Small earrings but so sweet~
from Kingston, Ontario
I love the story behind Eva's line. I really wanted to get something from this line but I couldn't justify the money. These pink and white studs are so sweet and just a hint of sparkle. I LOVE them!!!! I LOVE my earring that dangle but these are a great switch up. Keep them comming. I looked at the dangle ones but they were sold out. Looking forward to buying more from Eva's line soon!
