In the heart of Caleesi Designs, where artistry meets craftsmanship, we often encounter questions about the authenticity and allure of VVS diamonds. VVS, standing for 'Very Very Slightly Included,' refers to the clarity of a diamond. But the question remains: Are these sparkling beauties real?
The Clarity Scale
VVS diamonds fall near the top of the diamond clarity scale. This scale ranges from 'Flawless' (FL) to 'Included' (I), with VVS representing a very high clarity grade. The VVS category is further divided into two subgrades: VVS1 and VVS2. VVS1 diamonds have even fewer inclusions than VVS2, making them rarer and often more sought after.
The Nature of Inclusions
Inclusions in diamonds are natural. They are essentially tiny imperfections formed during the diamond's creation deep within the Earth. In VVS diamonds, these inclusions are so minor that they're difficult to detect even under 10x magnification. This is what sets VVS diamonds apart from lower grades and contributes to their allure.
The Authenticity of VVS Diamonds
Every VVS diamond at Caleesi Designs comes with certification from renowned institutions like the GIA. This certification is not just a piece of paper; it's a testament to the diamond's authenticity, quality, and journey from the depths of the Earth to our store.
The Rarity and Price Considerations Of VVS Diamonds
The rarity of VVS diamonds means they are often priced higher than those with more visible inclusions. However, the price is also influenced by other factors like carat weight, color, and cut. It's important to consider all these aspects when evaluating the value of a VVS diamond.
Engaging Myths and Misconceptions about VVS Diamonds
In the realm of fine jewelry, certain misconceptions about VVS diamonds often cloud their true value and appeal. A common one is the perception that VVS diamonds are synonymous with synthetic or lab-grown diamonds, primarily due to their impeccable clarity.
However, the key differentiator is their origin. One is a gift of nature, formed over billions of years beneath the earth's surface, and the other is a testament to human ingenuity and technological advancement.
Choosing a VVS Diamond: A Personal Journey
Understanding Your Preferences
When selecting a VVS diamond, it's crucial to consider what matters most to you. For some, the near-flawless clarity of a VVS diamond is a perfect symbol of their love and commitment. For others, the character of a diamond with more visible inclusions may hold a unique appeal.
