CLARITY: WHILE LIES BENEATH

Clarity is the grading scale that gives your diamond its value and distinguishes one diamond from the other. It’s a key component in the diamond’s “fingerprint.” 

Clarity affects a diamond’s brilliance. An inclusion or blemish can hinder light from entering a diamond and thus have an adverse effect on a diamond’s sparkle. A strategic cut can minimize the effect of flaws.
