Characteristics of the various zodiac signs

When viewing a GIA diamond report, clarity is one of the aspects that most people pay attention to (well, mostly because of the plot diagram since we are mentally more receptive to images). Clarity refers to the surface irregularities (blemishes) and internal (inclusions) features of a polished diamond. A flawless diamond is one with the highest clarity grade (FL), which means there are no visible inclusions or blemishes on the stone (seen at 10x magnification). Needless to say, the fewer clarity features a diamond has, the rarer it is and the more valuable it becomes.
Having said that, I want to point out that a high clarity or color rating does not guarantee a stunning looking diamond. Since no two diamonds are alike and do not have the same exact flaws in similar locations, clarity characteristics behave like fingerprints. Because every diamond is different and has unique clarity characteristics, buying blind is like taking a shot in the dark.


During the grading process, clarity characteristics are identified by trained graders and their locations are plotted onto representative diagrams. For first timers, it may look a little complicated due to the different types of symbols used to depict inclusions. Collectively, these blemishes and inclusions are termed as the diamond’s clarity characteristics. In real life, this is something that is rarely encountered as the vast majority of diamonds have some degree of imperfections. It should come as no surprise that some of the world’s most expensive diamonds have a good combination of color and clarity ratings. During its formation process, imperfections are created in a sequence of chaotic events deep within the Earth and it doesn’t end there. Blemishes (marked in green) and inclusions (marked in red) are indicated clearly in both the diamond’s face-up and pavilion views.


At such a large carat size, an SI2 clarity diamond is very likely to have significant inclusions that impact outward beauty. Besides forces of nature, the rough diamond mining and polishing process also constitute towards the ultimate condition of the diamond. That’s why having images and videos of the actual diamond like those provided at James Allen can really help you SEE how the diamond looks like exactly.
