Diamond Buying Tips -Clarity
Most inclusions are too small to be seen by the unaided eye (VVS, VS,SI).
1. If your budget is tight, pick a diamond with lower clarity yet not visible to unaided eyes
(VS2, SI1,or high SI2).
2. As diamond size increases, the size of the facets also increases which means it is easier to look into the diamond to see its inclusions. Thus, the importance of purchasing with a higher clarity grade increases accordingly.
3. Fancy shaped diamonds which emphasise transparency over sparkle usually have bigger facets. Thus, it is recommended to get higher clarity ones ( VVS, VS) as well.
