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.

Wow .. not at all what was on television
By Huge Fan of the Collection
from London, ON
Received this bracelet today and I'm still in shock.I realize the specs say for a 6" wrist, however the extender is flimsy. No way is this secure enough for a 7 or larger wrist.Also, when this aired on television, what was shown on the model and on Tracey's wrist was larger. By larger, I mean each evil eye. These are TINY!! And if you aren't told they have diamonds around them you would never know it.I made an evil eye bracelet for $10 from enamel and CZ's and those look more like diamonds than these and are a decent size.I don't mean to offend as I am a HUGE fan of all of Tracey's collections and own probably half of her pieces, but really, this looks like a child's bracelet.I'm very sad to have to return this but for the $$ I'll stick with my $10 bracelet that many have asked me to duplicate.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
