To the uninitiated, diamond clarity would mean how clear that stone is to look at. However, its explanation goes much deeper than that. There are several minute formations within this stone called inclusions, which are often not visible to the naked eye. These inclusions, along with surface defects called blemishes, reduce its value. Inclusions are the outcome of events that took place while this stone was forming. They might be in the form of crystals of a foreign material, or another diamond crystal, or structural imperfections such as tiny cracks. Slight inclusions usually do not affect its sparkle. It is only when these "clouds" are large, that they can affect its ability to transmit and scatter light. As is obvious, the higher its clarity grade, the more expensive it is. Those considered "flawless" are incredibly rare.
The thing to remember most, if nothing else, when buying your diamond or jewelry, it is to do the research first find out exactly what youre looking for, and then find out what to watch out for. Especially for your first time buying, just like a car or house, you should have a reliable guide to help you along the way. So, whether you shop with your local jewelry store or online, you can have the utmost confidence in whatever it is you purchase.
The Darya-I-Nur diamond is thought to be the largest, and one of the oldest pink diamond in the world, with an estimated weight of somewhere between 175 and 195 carat. It is light pink in colour and has been mounted in its present brooch setting for more than a 130 years, making it difficult to determine its precise weight. This diamond is housed within the Iranian Crown Jewels, and is eminent among a collection of rare and beautiful gemstones. The Steinmetz Pink Diamond is another renowned gem, classified as a vivid pink and weighing 59.60 carat. This stone, the largest fancy vivid pink diamond in the world was discovered in South Africa. The Steinmetz diamond took a team of eight specialist jewellers 20 months to create the flawless masterpiece that exists today. This dazzling gem among gems was finally unveiled to the world during a public ceremony held in Monaco in May 2003.
