Clarity, Diamond

One the “four c’s” for rating diamonds (cut, color, carat and clarity), clarity is determined based on how transparent and free of inclusions a stone is. It takes a well educated professional to judge clarity. Even those who’ve looked at stones for years can be dramatically off in their personal assessment. The scale includes 11 possible grades:

Flawless (FL)
Internally Flawless (IF)
VVS1
VVS2
VS1
VS2
SI1
SI2
I1
I2
I3
