What is Diamond Clarity?
The clarity of a diamond refers to its freedom from inclusions (internal flaws) or blemishes (surface flaws) under 10X magnification. Clarity ranges from flawless to included based on what is viewed during lab examination. At Marc Quin, we only use diamonds without noticeable imperfections to the unaided eye.
