Color H color diamonds are near colorless. H color may be somewhat noticeable when compared to diamonds of better grades, but this grade offers excellent value. Its very faint tint will only be noticeable to a trained gemologist. Such diamonds look beautiful in platinum and white gold and offer outstanding value.
Clarity VS1 clarity diamonds are very slightly included grade one. VS1 diamonds are less expensive than the VVS1 or VVS2 grades and present an excellent value. They have minor inclusions that are bigger and more noticeable than in higher clarity grades, but they are only visible at 10x magnification. To the naked eye, these diamonds will appear unblemished.
