Diamond Clarity Chart
Diamond Clarity grading scale ranges from flawless for a perfectly clean diamond under a 10-power microscope to an Included three stone where the diamond is so full of inclusions it is both ugly and breakable. The cleaner the diamond the rarer and more expensive it will be.

NOTE: SI3 is not a valid GIA clarity grade. A. Debbies Discount Jewelers owns only GIA certified diamonds so you will not find SI3 clarity grades in our inventory. Any diamond graded SI3 by other laboratories will get I1 or I2 clarity grades from the GIA, and those diamonds will have inclusions which will be visible to the naked eye
I1, I2, I3
Inclusions that can be easily visible to the naked eye. I2 and I3 clarity grade diamonds can be dangerous and subject to breakage
