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.

from Kleinburg, Ontario
I gave the earrings to my mom for her b'day, less than 2 weeks later closure broke. I took them to 2 very reputable jewellers, 1st told me they were not gold and could not be repaired. Second jeweller said same thing, only gold is closure, rest is plastic and unrepairable. I insisted they try to repair them and they showed me all the little pieces of plastic breaking off. Money down the drain. (By the way, the supposed diamonds are cubes).
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

I was very excited at first and now totally regret this purchase - they broke at the post after the 30 days of course - I tried to get them fixed which was a disaster - the earring was destroyed. Now they are a complete write off.I don't recommend anyone trying to fix them. I guess I was one of the unlucky ones!!I am very disappointed with this whole experience.

I wrote a positive review of these after I bought them. Have had them since before X-mas so can't return them!! The gold is PEELING off on one of the earrings! Iam very disappointed with this line of resin jewelry. I will NOT ever order from the resin line again. Also had to return another pair from another show more recently as the white gold is wearing(rubbing off)and appears to be rose gold underneath. Nothing like real solid gold I guess! Good thing I have the real thing and won't need to buy more at the gold prices now.
from Ottawa, Ontario
My earrings are two different colors, too. One is yellow and the other is pink gold. Like the other customer, it is very noticeable and my 30 days passed a few months ago. I would not recommend this product.

Lovely Hoop but not all that strong
I purchased these earrings in October and they are lovely. Unfortunately they are not indestructable. The post broke of at the hinge where it connects to the earring. Since it is past the 30 days there isn't any recourse but to go to the manufacturer. I am not the only customer to have this problem. They are such nice earrings I will likely try and get it repaired at a local jeweller.
from Grimsby Ontario
These earrings have become my favorite to wear allthe time. The color is rich. I love the fact thatthey are extremely light. Some hoops are so heavythat they are not comfortable to wear. These earrings are very comfortable and look gorgeous. I went back to order the round hoops but unfortunatelythey were sold out. I highly recommend these earrings!

Not so great afterall,,
I would have given these earrings a higher rating before, but one of the posts fell off recently. It's past the 30 day cut off, so I'm stuck with them. What good is it if a truck can run over them if they aren't functional? Buyer beware.
Loved them, but..
I ordered these beautiful earrings for my daughter as I just knew they'd look gorgeous on her. When they arrived, they were as beautiful as seen on TV, except that they were two completely different shades of gold. Not sure how that happened, but it's true, and it was a very discernible difference, and not one that you could get away with. Certainly not for a gift. Disappointed, I sent them back. I still have to give them 4 stars as I think my pair was a faulty fluke - I would recommend them if you are lucky enough to get two matched earrings, or patient enough to keep exchanging until you do get a matched set.
Simple Hoops with Style!!

I bought these after viewing them on the channel and was quite pleased with the look and style of the earrings. They are easy to put on and look great!! Good durability and thickness. Looking forward to many years of wear.
