Clarity ratings are determined by the amount and visibility of inclusions in a diamond. Inclusions consist of tiny pinpoints, markings, and clouding which affect the overall appearance of the diamond.
There are two types of flaws within a natural diamond: inclusions and blemishes. Inclusions refer to the internal flaws of a diamond and blemishes refer to external or surface flaws. In general, diamonds with fewer inclusions and blemishes will have a better clarity rating. This increases their brilliance and value.
