Clarity measure's the number and size of the tiny imperfections that are in almost all diamonds. Most of these imperfections are microscopic, and do not affect a diamond's beauty in any way.
We advise that you choose an ‘eye clean’ diamond. This means imperfections are not visible to the naked eye.
