Sometimes it’s not about what you see in a diamond, but it’s about what you can’t see. The clarity of a diamond refers to the presence of natural inclusions, imperfections and blemishes on and inside a diamond.
As the name suggests, clarity of a diamond is how clear the stone is, howeverwith regard to the organic traits that were trapped inside when it was forming. The traits on the inside are known as inclusions, which are often minute diamonds that were drawn in by the bigger one. The traits of these inclusions like their size, orientation, location and color determines the clarity. Hence, diamonds with few inclusions are rare and more expensive.

Although extensively used while purchasing and scouring for just the right diamond, carat or ct, is often confused with size. However, the carat actually refers to the weight of gems and diamonds. This is also not to be confused with karat, which refers to the purity of gold.
The form and kind of gemstone will show its weight differently, because of the different densities of each stone. Diamonds that have the same carat weight can have varying costs due to the impact of the other Cs that come into play. Like, for example, a diamond’s cut influences how large the carat weight will appear. Diamonds of a smaller carat weight will appear larger and with higher cut grades. Total carat weight refers to the total of the individual carat weights of all diamonds in one piece of jewelry.
