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 loved these earrings when I received them. They're light weight and shiny without being too over the top. I like to wear them when I want to look a little bit dressed up. I was impressed that they can't be dented. However, after only a few wearrings, I examined them and noticed that one of the earrings has a chip in the gold coating on one of the bottom edges. The chip is quite deep, can be easily felt, and goes right to the underlying resin which can been seen as a dark colour underneath. I don't want to touch the earring too much as I'm afraid the chip will get bigger. It's disappointing because these earring were not cheap in price and it's too late to return them. I won't take a chance and buy coated or plated jewellery in the future as it is not durable and does not last but will rather stick to the real stuff!
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

BACK THEY GO!!!
from Ottawa area
If I only wear these once in a while they would probably last a couple of years. But, I bought them to be able to wear them a lot. I took a magnifying glass and checked them over. The posts appear and feel solid but the "white gold" coating over resin - not so strong. I can already detect hairline slivers in the coating. I received them this afternoon and will return them this evening. I would rather spend another $100. to $150. and purchase real gold. I agree with previous reviewers, the diamond accents are so minuscule as to be non-existent. They could be left off as the add nothing to the overall value. I did like the size of these - but, regrettably that was all.

I have these in the yellow gold...they are so light weight, and very lovely!
Have had these just a month and noticed that the gold(white) is wearing off on one of the earrings and it appears that it is rose gold color underneath. Most disappointing! These will be returned and I will not order anything that is resin underneath again! I have another pair from an earlier show and the gold is peeling off on one of the earrings. Too late to return those!! Beware of this line!!

These earrings look great on and are very visible on the ears and are so durable. I love everything about them. My daughter is a little hard on jewellery and these are just perfect for her. I love them so much that I'm ordering another pair for me.

I had ordered the first hoops from 4EverLast in yellow gold and was so happy with them I was very anxious for more to be brought in. I ordered these in white gold and am equally pleased. They're a little different from the first pair and that's perfect. I have a lot of 10K and 14K gold earrings collected over the years but these are a constant go to. Now I need something brought in that's again, just a little different so I can order them in Rose Gold.These are beautiful, well made, solid and the "Today's Showstopper" price makes them an outstanding value.Thanks to whoever came up with the concept. You have made gold affordable again.
