Clarity Unlike the classic vision of an expert gemologist scrupulously analyzing a diamond under the microscope, clarity is not the greatest determinant of a diamond’s value. In reality, collectors may weigh clarity less than cut or color. Flawless diamonds are stones whose internal lattice structure has no inclusions or irregularities, which appear as small scratches under a 10x microscope. Since inclusions are completely invisible to the naked eye, if one stone has a rare color or brilliant cut, most often it can be appraised at a higher rate.
