Given below is the diamond clarity chart to determine the clarity of a diamond. This GIA diamond clarity chart is given by the GIA international diamond grading system. Refer the AGS diamond clarity grading scale chart to know whether your diamond is a flawless one or not and their corresponding descriptions. GIA has 4Cs policy, which are Carat Weight, Color Grade, Clarity Grade and the Cut Grade. This diamond clarity grading scale helps you to assess your diamond for its clarity.
|0||Flawless||lF||Extremely rare, less than 1 in 5000 jewelry quality diamonds are rated FL.Internally Flawless diamonds have no inclusions visible under 10x, but can have very minor blemishes.|
|1||Very, Very Slightly Included||VVS1||A diamond with a clarity grade of 1 or 2 has minute inclusions that are difficult for a skilled grader to see under 10x magnification.|
|3||Very Slightly Included||VS1||Inclusions are not visible to the naked eye. Perhaps 1 in 100 untrained observers can detect VS2 inclusions with the naked eye, on close inspection under ideal conditions.|
|5||Slightly Included||S1||SI1 is the lowest grade with flaws often invisible to the naked eye. SI2 inclusions are usually visible to the naked eye, although they will require close inspection.|
|7||Included||I1||Included diamonds with a clarity grade of 7, 8, 9, or 10 (I1, I2, or I3), have inclusions that are obvious at 10x magnification. Sometimes, they can be seen with the naked eye. At the lower clarities, may have an effect on the diamond’s durability.|
From this GIA diamond clarity chart, you could see there are 11 types of clarity scales available for a diamond to assess its clarity. These are given as flawless, internally flawless, very very slightly included (VVS1 and VVS2), very slightly included (VS1 and VS2), Slightly Included (S1 and S2) and Included (I1, I2, I3).
