What is Diamond Clarity?

Brightness is one of the most fascinating aspects of a diamond, and it plays a crucial role in determining the value and beauty of these beautiful gems. Diamonds are molded deep under the earth's crust under immense pressure and extreme heat, and this intense process can sometimes result in internal characteristics, either inclusions, and surface units called inclusions. The brightness of a diamond refers to the extent to which these impurities are present and how good they are visible when one looks at the stone.

Diamonds are rated on a scale of brightness, which starts with 'flawless' (flawless) without any visible inclusions or imperfections, and extends to 'included' (included), where impurities are easily perceptible with the naked eye. Between these extremes are gradations such as 'very, very small inclusions' (very very slightly included), 'very small inclusions' (very, slightly included), 'small inclusions' (slightly included) and, each with their own subtleties.

A diamond with a high clarity, such as flawless or very, very small inclusions, will show a beautiful sparkle and shine because there are few or no imperfections to disturb the light while travels through the stone. Such diamonds are rare and expensive, and they are often the choice of engagement rings and other jewelry invaluable.

On the other hand, diamonds with a slightly lower brightness still offer a brilliant sparkle and can represent an excellent value for those who want to combine beauty with budget reasons. When choosing a diamond, it is important to consider the brightness in combination with the other 4Cs - Carat (carat), cut (grinding shape) and color (color) - to find the perfect stone that matches your taste and needs .
