Clarity grades are based on the number and location of naturally occurring inclusions within a diamond as seen with no more than 10x magnification.


The most common inclusions are

carbon (black spots), feathers & clouds (white areas), and cleavages (small ”cracks”).


Any diamond graded SI2 or above will not have inclusions that you can see with the naked eye. Price increases dramatically with a higher clarity grade.
