Are VVS Diamonds Real?

VVS diamonds are the highest tier in the flawless family. They're rare, and they're known for their clarity and color. The initials stand for 'Very Very Slightly Included,' which refers to how much light is allowed through a diamond's surface; this lets you see imperfections like inclusions if you look closely enough!

What Are VVS Diamonds?

Yes, VVS diamonds are natural and real. They're not lab-grown, synthetic, or moissanite. The term "vivid" refers to the clarity of these stones—and VVS diamonds are among the clearest you'll find in terms of color, which makes them perfect for any occasion.

The most popular variety of VVS is slightly cloudy with a medium-dark tone and almost no inclusions (small areas of imperfection). This makes them ideal for everyday wear because they won't be too flashy or distracting from your skin tone or outfit choice.

Diamond Clarity Grades

VVS diamonds are the highest clarity grade. This means that the internal defects of a diamond are so minor that no one can see them, even with a microscope. VVS diamonds have been given this name because they're "very slightly flawed" because they may have some tiny imperfections visible to the naked eye yet not visible under magnification. The other two grades are VS1 and VS2 (very slight imperfections).

Are VVS Diamonds Rare?

VVS diamonds are the highest tier in the flawless family, and they're usually reserved for engagement rings. 

VVS diamonds are often used to cut other diamonds because they have such high-quality standards. If you want to add some sparkle to your ring, or if you're looking for an exceptional gift idea for someone else (or yourself!), VVS diamonds are worth considering!

Do VVS Diamonds Have Inclusions?

Inclusions are usually not visible without magnification. They are microscopic, and they can only be seen with a microscope. Even then, it may be difficult to see them unless you use the highest magnification available on your equipment (or, in some cases, even then).

Inclusions are not easily visible to the naked eye; therefore, this makes it even more unlikely for someone to realize that their diamond has inclusions inside of it until after they've purchased their ring from someone else who does know about this possibility (like us).


VVS diamonds are the highest grade of cut and clarity for natural diamonds. They are very rare and have a higher price tag than other stones. In addition, they are more difficult to find because they require much more time and labor to create and have fewer than-perfect cuts.
