Clarity


The GIA Clarity Scale includes eleven clarity grades ranging form Flawless to I3. Because diamonds form under tremendous heat and pressure, it is extremely rare to find a diamond that lacks any internal and external characteristics. These characteristics are a by-product of its formation and help gemologists and jewelers separate natural diamonds from synthetics and simulants, and identify individual stones.


FL - Flawless Shows no inclusions or blemishes of any sort under 10X magnification when observed by an experienced grader.


IF - Internally Flawless Has no inclusions when examined by an experienced grader using 10X magnification, but will have some minor blemishes.
