Clarity

The clarity of a diamond is assessed by examination of imperfections (inclusions on the inside and blemishes on the outside) under 10x magnification. Almost all diamonds contain inclusions, which are minute traces of non-crystalized carbon or small non-crystalized diamond crystals which makes every diamond unique.

Most inclusions are not visible to the naked eye and require a 10x magnification to be detected. The fewer inclusions in the stone, the rarer the stone will be which makes it more valuable.

Definition of clarity grades according to GIA:

The GIA Clarity Scale contains 11 grades, with most diamonds falling into the VS (very slightly included) or SI (slightly included) categories. In determining a clarity grade, the GIA system considers the size, nature, position, colour or relief, and quantity of clarity characteristics visible under 10 magnification.
