– Posted in: product review, sponsored post

I can’t say that I’m an expert on diamonds though I’ve had quite a lot of practice staring at the engagement rings and wedding bands of friends over the years. It seems as though an announcement is made every other month by someone who will soon tie the knot. And I can’t help it, when an engagement ring is presented to me, I have a typical knee jerk reaction: I have to gawk and admire it in all it’s splendor.

With the holidays just around the corner, it seems only natural that I will receive a few more phone calls than usual from friends who were popped the question.

I’ve had the pleasure of reviewing Whiteflash, the makers of some of the most romantic and dazzling jewelry I have ever seen from many of the world’s top designers. Whether you are in the market for an engagement ring, a beautiful necklace, or a pair of sparkly earrings, Whiteflash offers a beautiful array of one-in-a-kind pieces that will take her (and his!) breath away. Users have the option of designing their own engagement rings, chat live with customer sales reps, and have confidence that the jewelry they are purchasing is conflict free! Nicknamed “Lord of the Online Rings,” Whiteflash has 12 years of experience and a host of awards to back its reputation.

While researching this company, I learned a thing or two about choosing diamonds (though this would hardly qualify me as an expert). The cost of a diamond depends on three major variables: cut, color, and clarity. Oh, I’m sorry. That’s buying an engagement ring 101 for you? Well, excuse me! This is new to some of us (ahem).

The cut of a diamond is essential to its brilliance and sparkle. Loose diamonds much lower in color and clarity that are cut with high precision can look much more beautiful than diamonds with perfect color and clarity but faulty cut quality. Color is of the utmost importance when choosing an engagement ring. Put into the most layman’s terms: near perfect diamonds are ones you can practically see through. Most shoppers tend to prefer diamonds that don’t look yellow to the casual observer, and the diamonds in the near-colorless range (GHIJ) generally fit this criteria. The final element is clarity, which is where buyers compromise the most since imperfections are not always noticeable to the naked eye. Very few people actually buy flawless diamonds.

If you (or someone you know) is in the market for something sparkly this holiday season, Whiteflash has diamond designer engagement rings for any budget and taste, ranging from classic to modern. Verragio, Leon Mege, and Benchmark are just a few of the award-winning designers offered at this site.

I learned quite a few things from checking out the many styles and diamonds by perusing Whiteflash. And you know, maybe it wouldn’t be the worst thing in the world for you ladies to leave this site open on your browser. Tell your loved ones Charlotte reviewed their site and you wanted to check it out for yourselves ;) I’m so cheeky, I know!

As I live with a diamond cutter, I don’t ever have to worry about the 3 c’s. Unfortunately he likes to remind me that he doesn’t own them, he just cuts them. And while a few have been gifted, those really, really big ones he works on, never seem to make it home. They sure are pretty though.

Hmm, do they have more than just diamonds? I prefer other kinds of stones…
