Diamond Clarity Refers to the Absence of Inclusions and Blemishes
Inclusions found on a diamond can be considered nature’s
birthmarks, the distinguishing characteristics that make the stone
When grading a diamond, a number of inclusions and blemishes
has a direct impact on its clarity and value.
1. Flawless, Internally Flawless (FL & IF)
2. Very Very Slightly Included (VVS1 & VVS2)
3. Very Slightly Included (VS1 & VS2)
4. Slightly Included (SI1, SI2, & SI3)
5. Included (I1, I2, I3)
Those who prefer a diamond with little or no inclusions will likely choose a clarity rating of FL-IF or VVS. Although they are priced higher.
Diamonds rated in the VS clarity range will not cost as much as more premium clarities. VS diamonds will contain inclusions that are undetectable to the unaided eye.
SI1-SI2 diamonds will contain inclusions that can be detected with magnification, yet are typically undetectable to the unaided eye and do not detract from the beauty of the diamond.
Those who desire large carat weights at lower prices may choose diamonds in the SI3-I1 clarity range. Inclusions in these stones are usually noticeable without magnification.
Diamonds are graded for clarity under 10x loupe magnification.
Diamond’s clarity is done according to International Grading System.
The international clarity scale has a range of 11 grades that run from flawless (FL) to obvious inclusions (I3)
Many inclusions and blemishes are too tiny to be seen by anyone other than a trained diamond grader. To the naked eye, a VS1 and an SI2 diamond may look exactly the same, but these diamonds are quite different in terms of overall quality. This is why expert and accurate assessment of diamond clarity is extremely important.
