Diamond Clarity

Whilst flawless diamonds are considered to the most perfect stones available, diamonds do not have to be completely flawless to be beautiful. If your budget means that you cannot afford a flawless stone for your wedding ring, you need not worry as most people will not notice tiny flaws unless they put your ring finger under a microscope!

Diamond Clarity Ratings

Whilst clarity ratings for diamonds may vary between diamond grading labs, the clarity ratings for the GIA are widely followed. They are as follows, in order of perfection:

  • FL = Flawless - No internal inclusions or external irregularities visible under 10x magnification to a trained eye.
  • IF = Internally Flawless - No internal inclusions but possibly tiny external irregularities in the finish visible to trained eye under 10x magnification.
  • VVS-1 = Very Very Slightly Included 1 - Usually one very tiny inclusion visible only to a trained eye under 10x magnification.
  • VVS-2 = Very Very Slightly Included 2 - Tiny inclusions visible only to a trained eye under 10x magnification.
  • VS-1 = Very Slightly Included 1 - Some very small inclusions visible to anyone with 10x magnification.
  • VS-2 = Very Slightly Included 2 - Several very small inclusions visible to anyone with 10x magnification.
  • SI-1 = Slightly Included 1 - Small inclusions visible to anyone with 10x magnification.
  • SI-2 = Slightly Included 2 - Several small inclusions visible to anyone with 10x magnification.
  • SI-3 = Slightly Included 3 - Inclusions are visible to the naked eye of a trained observer.
  • I-1 = Included 1 - Flaws that are visible to the naked, untrained eye.
  • I-2 = Included 2 - Many flaws clearly visible to the naked, untrained eye that decrease the brilliance.
  • I-3 = Included 3 - Many flaws clearly visible to the naked, untrained eye that decrease brilliance and compromise structure (more easily cracked or chipped).
