When you look on the Diamond Clarity Chart as Written and Designed by GIA (The Gemological Institute of America), you’ll see…
6 Main Clarity Grades
- Flawless (FL)
- Internally Flawless (IF)
- VVS (VVS1-VVS2)
- VS (VS1-VS2)
- SI (SI1-SI2)
- I (I1-I2-I3)
Of all the Diamond Clarity Ratings out there, the VVS Clarity Grade (That’s V V S, not WS!) is as Close to Perfection as most people will ever see.

VVS stands for Very Very Slightly Included.
(Some people call it Very Very Slight Inclusions)
VVS is Separated into 2 Categories:
Together, they form one of the Best Clarity Groups in the World.
When most people view VVS Clarity Diamonds, it pretty much looks Clean to them. No immediate Inclusions meet the Eye. They have a Hard time Finding any Flaws in the Diamond whatsoever.
It takes a Trained Eye to be able to pick out Pin-Points or Flaws in a VVS Diamond. You really have to have a Keen Eye and a Little Patience.
Most People Will Never Spot these Imperfections
The Inclusions are so Small, they’re Insignificant. Even a Trained Expert really has to Scrutinize the Diamond well.
VVS Imperfections are Pretty Much Invisible
If you want one of the Best Clarity Ratings, if you want a Diamond that looks Flawless, but doesn’t Cost like a Flawless Diamond does…
Then VVS is the Way to Go!
If you Compare VVS to a VS Clarity Diamond, or even the more Average SI Clarity Graded Diamond, you’ll see the Difference. And if you place a VVS Clarity Diamond up against an I Clarity Diamond, (I Clarity is the Lowest Clarity Grade) the Difference will be so Striking, it’ll be a Day and Night Difference.
VVS is Stunning and Awesome!
VVS Clarity Diamonds are Bright and Bold because they have Virtually No Imperfections to Block the Brilliance and Light from Entering or Exiting the Stone.
VVS Stones Light up and Emit more Beautiful Rays of Refraction and Life than you’ve ever seen before.
They are Top of the Line!
Getting any Clarity higher than a VVS Diamond is Extremely Rare. Flawless and Internally Flawless are Collector’s items and hardly ever enter the Market, let alone go up for Sale. So for most of us, VVS is the Best you can Buy (Check the Jewelry Stores, you’ll see!).
If Quality is what you Seek, VVS is the Clarity for you!
VVS1 or VVS2 won’t make much of a Difference in Looks… Maybe one Less Dot or Pin-Point Inclusion in the VVS1, but they will differ a lot in Price!
The further up the list you go, the more Money you’ll have to Shell out. But if you want the Best that Money can Buy, and if Money is No Option, then take a look at the Perfection and Beauty of a VVS Clarity Diamond!
And if you’re Investing in VVS, make sure you’re getting it GIA Certified as Well! GIA is the only way to Go!
To Make that Kind of Expensive Purchase, and NOT get it Guaranteed by the Biggest and Best Certificate Company in the World, would be a Crying Shame!
A GIA Laser-Inscribed, Certified VVS Clarity Diamond is the Cream of the Crop!
If you Buy VVS, one of the Best Clarity Grades on the Market, Don’t Stop There!
By all means, make sure it’s D-E-F Color as well (as all the Diamonds I’ve Pointed to here are)! (D,E or F Colors are Colorless Diamonds, which are Pure White, and have the Highest Color Ratings there are!)
With a VVS Clarity, Pure White Diamond, you’ll truly have the Best of the Best.
Plus, all these Diamonds have EXCELLENT CUTS as well. That’s the Best Cut you can get too! :)
And Trust me…
With this Quality, you’ll Never Regret it!
