Selecting jewelry pieces appropriate to an occasion can be difficult and choosing diamonds can be even harder. With numerous choices out there, finding just the right diamond can be a daunting task - Clarity and color both play significant roles in influencing the brilliance as well as the price of any diamond. But, Which diamond clarity is best?

At Pompeii3, we appreciate the significance of choosing the right diamond for your valuable piece of jewelry and we are ready to assist you through this wonderful journey.

Things to Consider When Evaluating Diamond Clarity - Which Clarity is Best?

Diamond clarity specifically relates to the internal imperfections called inclusions which are birthmarks inside the diamond and external imperfections called blemishes. Gemological laboratories assess these stones according to set standards, with Flawless diamonds being the rarest and most highly valued cut; that means there are no inclusions visible with 10x magnification loupe magnification loupe magnification loupe magnification loupes.

However, searching for the ideal diamond might not always be the most efficient approach. Here's why:

Eye-Clean Value

Almost all inclusions in diamonds that are classified as VS or SI are not visible even under a loupe. Pompeii3’s approach to diamond selection is to purchase eye-clean diamonds, providing maximum brilliance at a reasonable cost.

The Cut Matters

How a diamond is cut has a strong impact on how inclusions are visible, or otherwise, in the diamond. Some shapes like the round brilliant cut are especially good at hiding small flaws. Therefore, when it comes to clarity, it is also essential to consider the cut of the diamond.

For example, a diamond with clarity VS2 in a round cut from Pompeii3 would look completely eye-clean, which is an excellent combination of appearance and price. This clarity grade can be a perfect choice for a stunning diamond cross necklace or a pair of sparkling matching wedding bands.

Which Diamond Color is Best?

Diamond color means that diamond does not have any color, or rather it is capable of having an extremely faint tint. The color of diamonds is graded by the Gemological Institute of America starting from D and ending with Z where D is equivalent to colorless while Z is equivalent to a light yellow. D-rated diamonds are the most valuable and scarce, but when it comes to most jewelry, a slight move toward the warmer color can be advantageous.

Below is why selecting a diamond in the near-colorless range (G-H-I) might be appropriate:

  • Outstanding Brilliance: Even diamonds of near colorless grades (G-H-I) possess remarkable brilliance and fire, exceptionally reflecting light. Therefore, subtle warmth within these gems may enhance their brilliance even further.
  • Budget-Friendly: Diamonds with a slightly lower color hue are much cheaper than completely colorless diamonds. This is useful as it enables you to possibly opt for a bigger or better-cut diamond within your means.
