Came across a few sites selling diamond & birthstone (storywheel) charms like pandora, but none of the sites declare the type/cut etc of diamond used? Can they do this or is it cubic zircona or whatever?? dont want to spend £100 and find out I could have got it for a quid outside spar!!!

they can call a stone a diamond, but its only when it is 1.25 carat or above that is can be certified as a diamond. Thats what I was told in Ernest Jones last week. I hope that helps.

I'd say yes. Especially at that price. They will only be fragments though, but if you can bothered to have them professionally looked at and they turn out not to be real you've a case for misdescription. I would say it's safe to assume they are though. If they were £9.99 then that's another story.

They can't call a zirc a diamond though, I think that's what the OP is getting at. They can call it simulated diamond, or diamond effect, or plain old cubic zirc. But not diamond, if it's not diamond. One place called it industrial diamond, like the stuff they tip diamond drill bits with, but that's still not a diamond!

OP - as it's just a diamond accent they wouldn't specify the cut or size, it's not the main feature, but it will be genuine diamond, in my opinion.

Definitely not true. Diamonds come in all sizes - 1.25 carats is quite large! Ernest Jones sell the majority of their diamonds between 03 - 0.5 carats. Even the smaller ones should have a certificate with them.

The ones in the OP are probably diamonds, but REALLY small, so they don't bother certifying them and grading them.

i emailed the first company link:

Diameter of Wheel: 13mm

Diameter of Hole: 4mm

Size of diamonds: 1point total

Cut: Half Cut Round (White)

whats 1 point mean? there looks like 4 diamonds in the charm
