CLARITY :

Clarity is a term used for describing the number and size of inclusion in a diamond. Inclusions are Mainly traces of non-crystallized carbon that may appear on the Diamonds internally or externally. A flawless Diamond Contains and is Considered Extremely rare and Valuable .Large-Inclusions affected the brilliance Of stone as they interfere with the dispersion of light.

We grade Diamonds on the Basis Of purity by Determining Following Categories:

PURITY FL IF VVS1 VVS2 VS1 VS2 SI1 SI2 I1 I2 I3

COLOR :

Diamonds close to being colorless are more rare and valuable. Diamonds that display little color are allow more light to pass through.

SYMMETRY :

Symmetry refers to the alignment of the facets (surface Condition)in a diamond. Each facet needs to be a Consistent Size and Positioned Opposite to the Corresponding facet. Poor Symmetry misdirects the light that enters in the diamond.

We grade Diamond on the basis of Symmetry By Determining Following Categories :

HEART OR ARROWS :

An Impeccable round Diamond with perfect angles is called ” Heart and Arrows(H&A) “.These Diamonds are graded with extra specification under VNR. They are not Included in the regular Cut criteria as H&A diamonds are considered better than the excellent cut diamond.

FLUORESENCE :

When we exposed to ultraviolet radiations, a diamond glows if it carries the characteristic of fluorescence.

Black light is the most common source of UV in exposure of which many diamonds give off a glowing blue coloration.

VNR grades diamonds based on the level of fluorescence present in it :
