Clarity grading shows how much inclusions are there in the diamond.
Almost all natural diamonds contain some inclusions which are considered nature’s birthmarks. It distinguishes one diamond from another. Some large inclusions can be easily seen and some can affect the brilliance of a diamond.
Cut is the biggest factor that determines how a diamond sparkles.
Cut grading looks at the proportions of a diamond. When a diamond is cut with optimal angles, it produces great sparkles. Cut also affects the size appearance of a diamond. Two diamonds of the same carat weight can look bigger or smaller than the other due to the cut.
