Diamonds that are absolutely clear are the most sought-after and therefore the most expensive. But
many diamonds have inclusions — scratches, trace minerals or other tiny characteristics that can detract from the pure beauty of the diamond. The GIA
and AGSL use a detailed system of rules and standards to summarize the number, location, size, and type of inclusions present in a diamond.
WHAT CLARITY IS BEST ?
We recommend that you select an "eye-clean" diamond — one that has no inclusions visible to the unaided eye. An excellent value,
diamonds of this clarity are much less expensive than IF- or FL-grade diamonds and typically do not contain visible inclusions that detract from the
beauty of the diamond. If you're considering an SI grade diamond, call to speak to a diamond and jewelry consultant who will review the diamond to
ensure the inclusions are not visible with the unaided eye. But, if you'd rather not compromise on clarity yet are budget conscious, choose a diamond
with a good cut and G or H color.
