(Very Slightly Included)
As a diamond is shaped over millions of years by nature, small internal characteristics called ‘inclusions’ can develop, as can external characteristics called ‘blemishes’. An expert evaluating the clarity of a diamond must determine the number, size, nature and position of these characteristics.
Sadly, no diamond is perfectly pure. But the closer it comes, the higher its value.
The GIA Diamond Clarity Scale has 6 categories, which are subdivided into 11 grades.
