The 4 C's - Diamond Clarity
all diamonds are unique.
As diamonds are being formed, small amounts of minerals are trapped
in them during the crystallization process. These mineral characteristics
identify individual diamonds, much like fingerprints do for people.
Called "inclusions", their locations, number, sizes and
color determine the diamond's value. The fewer imposing inclusions
there are, the higher the clarity
of the diamond. It will reflect more light,
and the diamond will be deemed more valuable. A diamond without visible
inclusions is a rare act of nature. It will
return the most light to the eye, since
there is nothing to distort the light's path.
