Avital & Co.

Diamond Clarity

Diamonds are the result of carbon exposed to extreme pressure and heat deep within the Earth's crust. Consequently, most diamonds have tiny imperfections, which are called inclusions or flaws and blemishes. Clarity of a diamond refers to the absence of inclusions and blemishes within the diamond itself.  Most of these imperfections are not visible to the naked eye.

To judge the clarity of a diamond, gemologist will examine a diamond carefully using a lens with a magnification of 10 x.  The diamond should be loose and not in any type of setting.  They will then judge the clarity of the diamond using five clarity factors: size, number, position, nature, and color or relief.  The clarity grade is assessed based on the most noticeable inclusions, the so-called "grade setting inclusions.”[1]

Once these clarity factors are taken into consideration, gemologists use the following scale to assign the clarity quality of the loose diamond stone:
