From blemishes on the surface to internal inclusions, clarity assesses a diamond’s natural imperfections. When considering clarity, it’s important to remember that mined diamonds are formed organically within the earth, so imperfections are completely natural and extremely common.
In most cases, imperfections are undetectable to the naked eye. But just like each and every one of us, a diamond’s imperfections are what make a diamond unique. That’s why diamond clarity is graded along a spectrum, from flawless (no inclusions) to included (visible inclusions).
Our experts meticulously curate our selection of Slightly Included diamonds so you receive the most beautiful, eye-clean diamond at the best value.
All of our Ecksand diamonds are eye-clean! Yes, that also includes our Slightly Included (SI) diamonds that feature inclusions nearly invisible to the naked eye. Once your diamond is set, these inclusions can be strategically hidden by your ring’s prongs.
Standard Slightly Included (SI) diamonds feature inclusions closer to the center of the diamonds. These may be visible to the naked eye and can give your diamond a cloudy appearance, affecting its brilliance.
At Ecksand, we curate our selection of Slightly Included diamonds strategically to give you the most eye-clean, beautiful, and value-conscious stones. We select SI grade diamonds with inclusions located on one side of the diamond. This way, inclusions are almost invisible to the naked eye and, once set, can be hidden by the prongs of your ring.
Like the rest of our diamonds, our expert gemologists carefully curate our selection of Very Slightly Included diamonds so that you get the most exquisite, eye-clean diamond at the best value.
Our Very Slightly Included (VSI) diamonds feature inclusions that are invisible to the naked eye. Strategically hand-selected, our diamonds hide their inclusions within their facets. Once your diamond is set, these inclusions can also be strategically hidden by the prongs of your ring.
Standard Very Slightly Included (VSI) diamonds on the market can feature inclusions near the diamond’s center. While these inclusions are hard to spot with the naked eye, they can still affect your diamond’s brilliance.
