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 actually bought two of these rings last year in two different sizes.Recently I made one of the rings in to a pendant. It is AMAZING. It sparkles but subtle enough I can wear during the day. When you look at it, there's a calmness it brings you - like being at the ocean.So many have asked where I got such an incredible piece. Wait until they find out it was a ring and I have one to match!LOVE IT. Highly recommend this ring. You will not find one like it anywhere. Very unique.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Here is another I wrote a review for but it never got posted. =))TSC really, really needs to post a photo of this ring. It is simply STUNNING. The "doublet" of the lapis and white quartz is mezmerizing.The shine and sparkle is subtle enough to be able to wear this ring daily and the four black spinels give the ring that amazing accent.I generally don't wear yellow gold color but made an exception here because it is so beautiful. I highly recommend this ring!

TSC really, really needs to put up a photo of this ring. It is absolutely STUNNING!! A unique design with the doublet really brings out the colors and the sparkle and the four black spinels are a nice finish. This ring will be noticed!I bought this in two sizes because it is just so gorgeous and I wear it every day. It goes with every outfit and occasion.A must have!
