Clarity refers to how many surface imperfections and internal flaws a diamond has and how easily visible they are with the naked eye and under magnification. It is important to know that the top clarity grade that is FL (Flawless) is given to diamonds that are not visible even when looked at using a 10x loupe.
Carat is all about the weight of the diamond. One carat equals .20 grams. It is further divided into 100 cents or points (half a carat – 0.50 ct- In other words, diamonds can be better understood as 50 cents or points).
