Clarity refers to the purity of the diamond and the most pure diamonds are considered “flawless”. ¬†This means that they have no “blemishes” or “inclusions”, which are small marks either on the outside or inside of the diamond. ¬† Even diamonds with very good quality may have small inclusions.

The rating of clarity from best to lowest quality is as follows: Flawless (FL), Internally Flawless (IF), Very Very Slightly Included (VVSI1 and VVSI2), Very Slightly Included (VS1 and VS2), Slightly Included (SI1 and SI2) and Included (I1, I2 and I3).
