Understanding Diamond Clarity Grading

Diamonds are graded according to the 4 Cs: The 4 C’s. Clarity is the presence (or absence) of internal and external inclusions. Inclusions of a diamond affect its brilliance, fire, and scintillation. Inclusions are graded from Flawless to Included:
  • Flawless (FL): This categorization means that no internal or external defects are visible under 10x magnification.
  • Internally Flawless (IF): Even though the diamonds are flawless internally under a 10x magnification, the diamonds themselves could house a couple of minor surface blemishes.
  • Very, Very Slightly Included (VVS1 and VVS2): The inclusions of these diamonds are so miniscule that they will not be visible under 10x magnification to a grader of a high level.
  • Very Slightly Included (VS1 and VS2): Disseminate minor inclusions not visible to a well trained grader at 10x magnification.
  • Slightly Included (SI1 and SI2): However, these diamonds have inclusions that are quite difficult to see at 10x.
  • Included (I1, I2, and I3): In some diamonds, these inclusions are visible at ten times magnifications and help to reduce the transparency and brilliance of these stones.

The Uniqueness of VVS Cut Diamonds

The "VVS" label, which stands for "Very, Very Slightly Included," offers insight into the stone's impeccable clarity, but there's more to these diamonds than meets the eye:
  • Near-Perfect Clarity: The inclusion- free nature of the VVS diamond is the essence of its appeal. The inclusions of VVS diamonds are so tiny that even gemologists fail to spot them even at 10 times magnification. This is to the regular wearer a diamond that looks perfect.
  • Exceptional Brilliance: Due to the few inclusions that interfere with the passage of light, VVS diamonds have a brightness and glitter that is typical of the top-grade diamonds only. Their ability to accept and return light with that sought after fire and brilliance is undoubtedly superior.
  • Investment Value: Although VVS diamonds are sold at a high price, their value is well-deserved. They are a happy medium for people who want to combine clarity and expense. Because of their rarity and demand, VVS diamonds are usually sold for a high price, which is a proof of their value even in the resale market.
  • Versatility in Design: Thanks to the exceptional purity of VVS diamonds, they can be used in different designs without worrying that the inclusions will be seen and diminish their appearance. Either set as a single gem or surrounded by other ones, they possess unmatched flexibility in jewelry design.

Caring for Your VVS Cut Diamond Investment:

Investing in VVS diamonds is a wise decision, but it's important to care for your investment properly. To ensure longevity and sustained brilliance, take the following advice:
  • Regular Cleaning: Clean your VVS diamond often to keep it sparkling. Use a gentle soap with mild warm water, lightly brushing with a soft bristle toothbrush. Avoid any chemicals which are stronger or more aggressive or any abrasive material which could scratch the diamond or affect the setting.
  • Scheduled Inspections: Preferably, allow your diamond to be checked by a professional once every year. Issues can be identified by jewelers, like loose settings, and customers receive a professional clean.
  • Safe Storage: Deposit your diamond that is not in constant use separately from other jewelry. Diamonds can scratch not only other gems but also metals, combining each piece in separate pouches will be a good idea.
  • Wear with Care: Contrary to popular belief that diamonds are forever, they can be split with a well directed force. Decline the usage of your VVS diamond jewelry, when you perform strenuous activities or in touch with harmful chemicals.
  • Insure Your Investment: As with all tangible assets, your diamond should have theft, damage, and loss insurance. Keep a copy of the certificate or the record of your diamond, because it will come in handy when processing claims.
  • Avoid Direct Sunlight and Heat: Over time your diamond jewelry might sustain damages because of sun hazards. In addition, heat is capable of cracking up the diamonds, so please put the jewelry in a cool and dark place.
