THE VALUE OF A DIAMOND IS DETERMINED BY BLEMISHES AND INCLUSIONS.
Finding out about a diamond’s characteristics, such as blemishes and inclusions, is referred to as diamond clarity. When you consider the pressure under which a diamond is created, as well as the fact that they are not produced in a sterile laboratory, it is not surprising that the majority of these diamonds have flaws.
In diamonds, there are two types of flaws: blemishes and inclusions. Cracks, air bubbles, and mineral inclusions are examples of naturally occurring internal flaws found in diamonds. However, the majority of blemishes occur during the cutting process. Diamonds with fewer blemishes and inclusions are considered more valuable than those with more.
Diamonds are graded under loupe magnification based on their clarity. These grades range from those with no blemishes or inclusions to those with. A diamond can be graded in several ways, including F, IF, VVS1-VVS2, SI1-SI2, and I1-I2-I3. The clarity grade of a diamond is proof of its identity.
As there is no similarity between the two diamonds, GIA certificates include a diamond inclusion plot. The GIA certificate plot guarantees the value of the diamond you intend to purchase. It provides assurance that the diamond you are receiving is the one you paid for. If you are unsure about which clarity grade to select, flawless is the best and most rare.
Diamonds with VS and VVS grades are both beautiful and valuable. You can also invest in less expensive options that include SI2 and SI1, where the inclusions are also invisible to the naked eye.
