Clarity

In our opinion clarity is the third most important characteristic, because the majority of inclusions (flaws) are invisible to the naked eye, and require magnification to be detected.

So generally out of the 4 C’s, this has the least impact on a diamonds appearance. However the fewer inclusions there are the rarer and therefore more valuable the diamond will be.

FL (Flawless)
No inclusions or blemishes internal or external.

IF (Internally flawless) 

No inclusions and only blemishes that can be detected by a skilled grader. 

VVS1/VVS2 (Very, Very Slightly Included)
Inclusions that are difficult for a skilled grader to detect. 

VS1/VS2 (Very Slightly Included)
Inclusions that are visible to a skilled grader under 10x magnification, but are still extremely small. 

S1/S2 (Slightly Included)
Inclusions that are clearly visible under 10x magnification, but are very rarely seen with the naked eye.

I1/I2/I3 (Included)
Obvious inclusions under 10x magnification and can usually be seen by the naked eye.

I1, I2 and I3 diamonds are not sold by Matthew David.
