Clarity of a diamond refers to how free of natural characteristics a diamond is. In gem-quality diamonds the sometimes minute internal and external characteristics will determine the clarity of the diamond. Most diamonds will have some degree of natural inclusions.The scale used to measure these characteristic takes into account the size, number and placement of the inclusions. The clearer a diamond is to the naked eye and more under the scrutiny of a loupe, the more valuable the diamond.
