What Is A VVS Diamond?

One of the most intriguing aspects of diamonds is how they differ in appearance while still maintaining their high value. Some VVS diamonds have a higher grade than others, but this doesn't necessarily make them more beautiful or valuable. You can get a better understanding of all the different types of VVS diamond cuts when you know what to look for.

What Are VVS Diamonds?

A very, very slightly included diamond (or VVS1) is a diamond with inclusions that are difficult to see under 10x magnification. These diamonds are graded on a scale of 1-3, with VVS1 being the highest grade. Diamonds that fall into the VS range have inclusions that can be seen easily by the naked eye and require 10x magnification to discern. 

Slightly included diamonds have inclusions visible to the naked eye but can be seen with 10x magnification. Slightly included stones are graded on a scale of 1-3, with SI2 being the highest.

Types of Inclusions

Pinpoint: Inside diamonds, pinpoints are very little crystals with black and white colors.

Natural: A natural girdle is a rough portion of a diamond that has been left undisturbed after polishing.

Internal Graining: Because of uneven crystal development, it produces small weak lines that seem milky and foggy.

Taint Clouds: Inside the diamond, there are a group of small pinpoints called taint clouds. Because of the taint of clouds, a diamond may look hazy.

Feather and Chip: Feather refers to a minor break-in of a diamond that might compromise its durability. Chips are commonly found on the girdle and are produced by accidental hits.

Why Should You Buy A VVS Diamond?

VVS diamonds appear flawless to the human eye; however, they are significantly less expensive than a truly flawless diamond. This means that clients who purchase VVS diamonds will have the look of a perfect stone without the price tag. 

Furthermore, perfect diamonds are extremely uncommon, so even if you have the financial means to purchase one, you won't be able to find one that satisfies your carat, color, and cut requirements. As a result, VVS diamonds are typically the best option for buyers searching for a diamond with an exceptional optical appeal.
