Clarity Vs. Price Comparison Chart
clarity is best? We recommend that you select a diamond that has
no inclusions that are visible to the unaided eye, such as an "SI1"
or "SI2". Diamonds of this clarity are
much more reasonable in price than flawless diamonds, and do not
contain inclusions that would otherwise detract from the beauty
of the diamond.
The chart below compares the prices of diamonds, all the exact same
size, (The size selected was a 1.00 CT (1 Carat) Round Brilliant
Cut), with a color grade of "J" (Our best-selling,
most popular color grade), with a Cutting Grade of "Premium
- 2A or 2B" (Our best-selling, most popular Cutting
Grades) - with the various Clarity Grades.
