FL – Flawless
IF – Internally Flawless
VVS – Very Very Small Inclusions
VS – Very Small Inclusions
SI – Small Inclusions
I – Inclusions
With the clarity of diamonds, it begins with ‘Flawless’ which means that there’s absolutely nothing as far as an inclusion (marks/imperfections) in the diamond and then going down to ‘Inclusions’ which means that there are inclusions in the diamond that are visible to the naked eye.
Now with my customer’s I usually provide them with an SI diamond or better. I personally always aim for this clarity as I feel that they are the best value for money and as you can’t see the inclusions to the naked eye.
Having said that I’m quite happy to provide my customer’s with any clarity that they request as I’m able to supply any of the clarity’s from the chart shown.
