Diamonds! My favorite subject!!

Whiteflash jewelry 1Ahhhhhh let's talk about diamonds today!!  It's one of my favorite subjects! I love diamonds or as they are known in my house... sparklies!! I don't know what it is about diamonds that calls to me, all I know is they DO!! LOUDLY!!!
I will notice a beautiful diamond from across the room. My 'other' daughter Jill has a diamond ring that makes all other diamonds cry! Yes, I do, love me some DIAMONDS!!  Tacori jewelry has recently hit my radar. These are stunning and beautiful pieces of jewelry!!

Whiteflash jewelry 2I found Tacori Jewelry on Whiteflash (love the name! After all, a beautiful diamond is a white flash of light isn't it??!!) came on the diamond scene in 2000 bringing super ideal diamonds. Whiteflash has huge inventories of certified diamonds at the most competitive prices.
All of their diamonds have the MOST informative information about each and every diamond.  Their diamonds are A CUT ABOVE Super Ideal Diamonds which if you ask the experts and diamond connoisseurs are the finest diamonds in the world.  Whiteflash even earned the distinction of being "Lord of the Online Rings" in Kiplinger magazine.

Whiteflash jewelry 4I think, one of my very favorite Tacori rings at Whiteflash is this one! Isn't this the MOST stunning ring ever?!?!?!  Ohhhhh DH.......

Whiteflash jewelry 3Oh wait, hold the phone! I take that back..... now I want this one:

Trapezoid shaped diamonds make an emerald cut diamond dazzle with a bold look, with diamond crescents creating the prettiest of profiles.

Whiteflash jewelry 5Trust me, I could 'oh and ah' on this web site all day long.  I could also keep adding photo's. This site has a phenomenal selection of diamonds in all shapes and sizes.  If I lived in Texas I'd be on my way to their showroom in Houston. (Might be time for a trip to see my little sister!)
Diamonds aren't your thing? NOT to worry!! Check out these stunning items.  I LOVE this necklace!!

Of course if you get the necklace for me, I'll have to have the ring to match.  Yes, yes I am a greedy girl!!

Whiteflash even has a section that helps you learn about diamonds.
Do you know the 6 C's of diamonds?
Carat weight, Color, Clarity, Cut Basics, Cut Analysis and Certification.

Carat Weight: One carat is equal to 200 milligrams or one fifth of a gram.  Carat weight is sometimes expressed in points.  One point equals 1/100th of a carat, so 25 points is equal to a quarter of carat and 50 points is equal to half of a carat.  Grains of rice were also used.  4 grains of rice were equal to a carob bean.  That’s why people sometimes call a quarter carat diamond a one grainer.

Color: I had no idea that color went from D to Z (and beyond for color stones) Did you know that even though diamonds are transparent, most diamonds contain at least a hint of color. This is caused by the nitrogen in the earth that they are found. Most of us, yes, even me! can't distinguish between D, E and F diamonds because they are almost colorless. G, H, and I are still within the white range. A faint yellow to the diamond means they are K through Z. Colors that have more color, pinks or blues are fancy color diamonds.

See?? Aren't I just full of fun facts and information?  Find out all about Clarity, Cut andCertification on Now, if I could just get them to send me products to review I'd be a happy, happy girl!!
