Clarity is an indication of the diamond's inner purity. As diamonds are formed deep beneath the earth's surface the majority of them have blemishes or imperfections within them (called "inclusions").
The less inclusions a diamond has within it, the more valuable it is. The clarity grade of the diamond is based on the size, location, number, colour and visibility of these inclusions. It is internationally agreed that diamonds are to be examined under 10x magnification by using a loupe. We will provide your loose diamond purchase with a loupe and a tweezer, so that you can explore the fascinating world of your own diamond.
Less than 1% of all diamonds found have no inclusions and can be classified as flawless (FL) or Internally Flawless (IF). All the international grading labs use this grading system.
