Clarity and Color

Diamond clarity is the gauge of how clear and flawless a gem is. Very few stones are perfectly flawless – most contain at least minor mineral inclusions or tiny cracks. The more visible those flaws are, the less valuable the stone is considered.

Rare. Minute inclusions only seen under 10x magnification.
Very Slightly included (two grades). Minute inclusions very hard to detect with the naked eye.
Slightly included (three grades). Small inclusions only sometimes visible to the naked eye. Fantastic diamonds.
Inclusions visible to the naked eye yet lots of life and sparkle. Great value and still stunning.
More heavily included and easily visible with the eye often milky stone with little sparkle.
