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.

It's a matter of preference in style of course, but in my opinion it's just right. A subtle rather than an overt evil eye, it has a relaxed sophisticated character, nice sparkle and colour combination. I wear a lot of black and this works beautifully to blend in a bit of colour. It is on the expensive side but at the same time it's artistically designed and it's something you won't see everywhere.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

What a disapointment to see the size of this eye, so small need a magnifying glass. I purchased the evil eye pendant from one of her first shows and its beautiful, you can see it and can tell its an evil eye, receive compliments on it all the time. Too bad this one didn't meet expectations. Diamonds on this pendant have a nice sparkle to them, if you are looking for something really tiny this might be for you.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
