Diamonds 4c's - Color
Diamond clarity is one the 4Cs of
diamond qualities. It refers to any flaws, or inclusions
in the diamond, and how visible or detectable they are.
Inclusions can be foreign substances, or minute cracks or
flaws. It also refers to the appearance of any surface
flaws or scratches. As with the color grading scales,
clarity also has a grading scale, with FL used to denote
a flawless diamond. What FL means is that there are no
flaws or inclusions that can be seen when the stone is
examined under 10X magnification, the standard for
examining for flaws.
clarity designations are:
stands for internally flawless. This means there are no
internal flaws or inclusions, although there may be small
VVS2 stand for Very Very Slight
inclusions that are difficult to see under
and VS2 indicate Very Slight inclusions
that can be seen under magnification but are invisible to
the naked eye.
SI2 denote Slight Inclusions that may or
may not be visible to the naked
I1, I2 and
I3 are "imperfect", with inclusions
clearly visible to the naked eye. For I3, the inclusions
impact the brilliance of the diamond and are large and
most cases, there is nothing that can be done about flaws
or inclusions, although in recent years lasers have been
used to enhance some inclusions or fractures in diamonds
by filling them in, much the way small dings in a
windshield are filled in.
Certainly the most highly valued
diamonds are those that are flawless – FL - or internally
flawless – IF. But excellent values can be obtained at
the VVS and VS grades, as these are flaws not visible to
the naked eye, but only to an experienced grader under
