Most diamonds contain natural imperfections called inclusions. A diamond's clarity is determined by taking into account the number, size, type, and location of the inclusions. The fewer inclusions in a diamond, the more valuable it is. Inclusions are a natural process and considered nature's fingerprints on the diamond. The clear passage of light through a diamond is the "key" to its value. All of our diamonds have been selected according to their clarity, color, and cut which insures quality, beauty and value. The ability to consistently assign an accurate clarity grade to a diamond is a difficult task that takes many years of experience. Because of this, categories or grades are given.
Clarity is graded under 10 power magnification by a trained eye. The challenge of clarity grading can be divided into two parts:
A) Finding and classifying inclusions.
B) Evaluating their effect on the clarity grade.
