Buying A Diamond In Kansas City Diamond Clarity Grade

  • Clarity is a measure of the number and size of the tiny imperfections that occur in almost all diamonds.

  • Many of these imperfections are microscopic, and do not affect a diamond's beauty in any discernible way

Many times an indivdual gets confused by a diamonds clarity, but of the Four Cs, it is really easy to understand, and in my opinion has the least impact on a diamond's appearance. Clarity simply refers to the tiny, natural imperfections that occur in all but the highest clarity grades. Gemologists refer to these imperfections by a variety of technical names, including blemishes and inclusions.  Diamonds with the least and smallest imperfections receive the highest clarity grades. Because these imperfections tend to be microscopic, they do not generally affect a diamond's beauty in any discernible way.


In my Diamond Lab I will help you select an "eye-clean" diamond - one that has no imperfections visible to the unaided eye. An excellent value, diamonds of this clarity are much less expensive than flawless (FL) or internally flawless (IF) diamonds, which are extremely rare and command higher prices. I want to be your diamond expert and with my years of experience and excellent sources help you find the perfect diamond.
