When light enters a diamond, it is reflected and refracted out. If
there is any thing disrupting the flow of light in the diamond, such
as an inclusion, proportion of light will be lost. As a result
brilliance could be diminished. The number of inclusions can
determine the degree of brilliance.
Inclusions, which are sometimes
referred to as” Nature’s Fingerprints,” are usually not
visible to the naked eye unless magnified.
Inclusions are ranked on a scale of
perfection, known as clarity, which was established by the
Gemologist Institute of America (GIA). The clarity scale, ranging
from FL (flawless) to include (me), is based on the visibility of
inclusions at a magnification of 10 as.The position of inclusion can
affect the value of a diamond. There Are very few flawless diamonds
found in nature, thus these diamonds are much more valuable.
What’s the difference between
VVS1 and VVS2? Or SI1 and SI2. The numbers represent levels with in
each grade. THE I’s will be cleaner (have fewer or smaller
inclusions) than the 2’s. This allows for more specific
categories. Inclusions are natural identifying
characteristics such as minerals or fractures ,appearing while
diamonds are formed in the earth. They may look like crystals,
clouds or feathers.
To view inclusions, jewelers use a
magnifying loupe. This tool allows jewelers to see a diamonds at 10x
its actual size. Even with a loupe, inclusions in the VVS (Very
,Very Slightly Included) to VS (Very Slight Included) range can be
very difficult to find.
The position of inclusions can
affect the value of a diamond, you may not notice a significantly
difference between a VS1 and a VS2. However, you should consider the
number, size, brightness nature and position of the inclusions.
Some inclusions can be hidden by a
mounting ,thus having little effect on the beauty of a beauty. An
inclusion in the middle or top of a diamond could impact the
dispersion of light, sometimes making the diamond less brilliant.
