The clarity of a Diamond is the measurement and location of inclusions or flaws within the diamond.   Using the flow of light we able  to classify the clarity of a diamond using the following scale.

In this scale we measure the degree of internal inclusions and external blemishes. Inclusions can be small and/ or large, they can appear white and/or black; The more inclusions and the easier they are to detect determines the clarity grade.

Blemishes, on the other hand are external and are such things as scratches, nicks, abrasions and chips that may appear on the surface of the diamond.

Natural diamonds are the result of carbon exposed to tremendous heat and pressure deep in the earth. This process can result in a variety of internal characteristics called ‘inclusions‘ and external characteristics called ‘blemishes‘.

Evaluating diamond clarity involves determining the number, size, relief, nature, and position of these characteristics, as well as how these affect the overall appearance of the stone. While no diamond is perfectly pure, the closer it comes, the higher its value.

The GIA Clarity Scale has 6 categories, some of which are divided, for a total of 11 specific grades.

A diamonds value is determined using all of the 4 C’s. Learn More.

  • "I can't say enough about Diamond Cutters. They really just blew me away. Bill (the owner) treated my fiancé and I like family, taking his time with us, and just giving us an experience that was second to none. Price wise he blew the competition out of the water. He is really dedicated to giving his customers the best deal in town and they seem to take this very seriously. They have a beautiful showroom, a large selection, and a friendly staff that includes a designer on site: if you're looking for something customized to your liking. I came away from this experience with a very positive view of Bill and Diamond Cutters, and I'll definitely be back. My advice, don't bother with Reed's or Jared... Just go to Diamond Cutters
