Diamond wedding rings are graded on a number of factors including color, cut, clarity and carat. Carat weight’s kind of the easiest one, that’s a measurement of weight. A diamond can be a two carat, a diamond can be a one carat, a carat is like a dollar. One hundred PDs equal a dollar, so 100 points equal a carat. Second, there is the shape of the diamond and that’s the cut, it can be an oval diamond, it can be a round diamond, it can be a princess cut diamond. If the diamond’s cut well, it’ll sparkle a lot better.
The third thing is the clarity of the diamond. The flaws or the internal characteristics, that can either block or inhibit light movement through a diamond. Or, can make the diamond be very brilliant and alive, if there’s fewer of them in it. But it also helps determine the price, whether it’s very expensive or very inexpensive. Then, there’s color, color is more of a personal preference. The color grading scale starts at D and runs to Z. D, E and F being the rarest of white, not the most beautiful, or they can be, depends on what you like.

Stone Diamond Clarity
Most diamonds have flaws that affect the stone’s clarity. Internal flaws are called inclusions, while flaws on the surface of the diamond are called blemishes. Diamonds are examined under a microscope and graded on clarity. The grades are F, IF, VVS1, VVS2, VS1, VS2, SI1, SI2, I1, I2, and I3. Diamonds graded F are flawless. I3 diamonds have inclusions that are visible to the naked eye, and they are therefore considered to be of lower quality than the higher rated diamonds.
