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.

Lovely, comfortable but lacks quality
By TSC regular
Loved the style of this ring for everyday. Tanzanite very light and small stones but it makes up in comfort.The downside?Somehow losing one tanzanite. The method of securing them in place is lacking it seems because I did not abuse the ring myself.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Great everyday piece
from Etobicoke, ON
This ring is very pretty. I would wear this everyday. The tanzanite stones are a nice blue/grey/purple, and very sparkly. The diamonds are very tiny, and you can't see them very well .. that is why I would say 4 stars over 5. VERY comfortable to wear. I would buy this ring again.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I purchased this ring and it really was quite beautiful. The look, colour and everything about it made it look more expensive.

By Ring thing!
Beautiful ring. Lovely matching tanzanite stones and diamonds are a beautiful accent. Could definitely pass for white gold! Feels very comfortable when worn. Elegant.
