Diamond rings - Clarity


The clarity of the diamond rings depends on the number and size of the tiny imperfections, also known as "inclusions" of these gemstones. They appear during the diamond crystallization process. We could say it is the trace that nature leaves on them.

Most of these imperfections are microscopic and invisible to the human eye and they not affect the diamond's beauty.

If a diamond ring does not have any inclusion, it is the highest quality diamond, known as “internally flawless”. These types of diamonds are absolute purity, so the light can pass through cleanly without problem.

Trained gemologists classify diamonds' imperfections or inclusions in various ranks: FL, IFVVS1, VVS2 - VS1, VS2SI, SI2P1, P2, P3.

  • FL, IF: Diamond flawless clarity

    The clarity of this type of diamond is untainted. No internal or external imperfections. These are diamonds of the highest quality and therefore they are very rare its use in engagement rings, wedding rings or diamond necklaces.

  • VVS1, VVS2: Very small inclusions.

    This type of diamonds show very small inclusions. Although they are observed with a 10x magnification, it is really difficult to perceive its imperfections. They are considered of an excellent quality.

  • VS1, VS2: Diamond with Very small inclusions.

    This rank of clarity refers to very small inclusions in diamonds. They are imperfections to the naked eye cannot detect. It is one of the most desirable qualities because the best value is suitable.

  • SI, SI2: Diamond with small inclusions.

    Diamonds with this kind of clarity have small inclusions. It is possible to see them with the naked eye. That is why their cost is lower.

  • P1, P2, P3:Diamonds with observable imperfections to the naked eye

    This is the rank with more observable imperfections to the naked eye. They are lower quality diamonds in the world.

The firm does not work with purities of the lower ranks such as: SI, SI2 y P1, P2, P3. The diamond rings with such low rate clarity ranges are considered like low quality diamonds. It is not advisable to purchase such breakable items due to the amount of imperfections within their diamonds. Peris Clemència only works with higher clarity ranks (FLIFVVS1VVS2VS1VS2) to offer their customers diamond rings and fine jewelry, of excellent quality.
