CLAR­ITY

THISDAY Style - - STYLE & DESIGN -

Di­a­monds are cre­ated by na­ture un­der tremen­dous heat and pres­sure. Nearly all di­a­monds con­tain unique in­ter­nal char­ac­ter­is­tics called in­clu­sions and ex­ter­nal char­ac­ter­is­tics called blem­ishes. Many clar­ity char­ac­ter­is­tics are too tiny to be seen by any­one other than a trained gemol­o­gist us­ing mag­ni­fi­ca­tion. The GIA Clar­ity Scale con­tains 11 grades rang­ing from flaw­less to In­cluded.
