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 agree with the previous reviewer.These earrings are truly a stunner! They are bold and sparkly enough to be gorgeous with that little black dress but they are also classy and subtle enough during the day with that business suit.They are large but NOT heavy at all. I have worn them every day since receiving them. The shape is long and sexy.Can't wait for December's collection! Thank you Tracey for the brilliant designs and well made pieces that will truly last a lifetime and never go out of style.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

The ellegance is a signature of the line
I am in love with these earrings. They are co fine, delicate at the same time big enough , sparkling and impressive. The earrings are beautifuly done. You can wear them during the day, you can be smashing with these earrings on in the evening. The earrings bring the same ellegance like the other items from Tracey's collection. I am absolutely confident saying that, because I own several well made pieces from this collection with the same beauty. Thank you.
