Diamond clarity grade

Natural diamond inclusions

Natural diamonds have small imperfections known as inclusions – the fewer the inclusions, the higher the clarity grade. By definition any diamond graded SI1 or higher has no inclusions visible to the naked eye. The most common request Metal Urges receives  from its clients is for ‘eye clean’ diamonds of SI1 or better. Understandably, in the crisp clean light of Tasmania it is especially important to only use ‘eye clean’ diamonds with no inclusions, to make the highest quality diamond engagement ring that will give a lifetime of pleasure.
