Diamond Clarity

Diamond clarity is a degree of the purity and
diamond           rarity of the stone, graded by using the visibility of those characteristics below 10-strength magnification. A stone is graded as faultless if, underneath 10-energy magnification, no inclusions (inner flaws) and no blemishes (external imperfections) are seen. At Tiffany, we best be given .04% of the world’s gem-grade diamonds.

Tiffany Standard of Clarity
Tiffany’s strict diamond grading standards are performed with knowledge, integrity and accuracy. When Tiffany believes that a diamond’s clarity is at the borderline between grades, Tiffany will usually assign the stone a lower grade—by no means falsely inflating a diamond readability grade.

Does Diamond Clarity Really Matter?
A diamond with a negative clarity grade has more than one inclusions, which at once impacts sparkle. Because inclusions preclude the refraction and return of mild, the decrease the clarity grade, the cloudier the diamond will seem.

“If anything takes far from the beauty of the stone, we gained’t receive it.”

—Hannah Jee, diamond grader
