Are VVS diamonds fake?

Are VVS diamonds fake?

VVS diamonds have very benign inclusions such as pinpoints, clouds, internal graining or feathers which will never impact the outward appearance of the stone. The bottom line is, you will not be able to see any inclusions or blemishes with an unaided eye. In fact, you are unlikely to find them even if you use a loupe.

What’s better VS or VVS diamonds?

The main difference between VVS and VS clarity is the size of inclusions. VVS (Very, Very Slightly Included) and VS (Very Slightly Included) are the next two grading ranges. (You should remember that VVS denotes higher quality than VS.) The bottom two grades on the scale are Slightly Included (SI) and Included (I).

Which is better VVS or VS2?

VVS (Very Very Slightly Included) diamonds are a grade better than VS (Very Slightly Included) diamonds. VS diamonds (both VS1 and VS2) contain a small number of inclusions when the diamond is viewed under 10x magnification. VS Diamonds tend to have a higher number of inclusions, although not always.

Is a VVS a good diamond?

Sweet sweet perfection. Just shy of the Flawless and Internally Flawless grades, VVS diamonds are basically flawless with a few pinpoints thrown in in nondescript locations. They are one of the highest and most expensive diamond clarity grades.

Why are VVS diamonds so expensive?

That’s because larger diamonds that are graded high on the color, clarity and cut scales are rarer, so they cost more. A 1.00 ct G-H color, VVS1 diamond can be 15%–20% more expensive than a comparable VS1 or VS2 diamond. If you’re buying a diamond of this quality, the difference in price can be significant.

How can you tell if a diamond is real or fake at home?

To tell if your diamond is real, place the stone in front of your mouth and, like a mirror, fog it up with your breath. If the stone stays fogged for a few seconds, then it’s probably a fake. A real diamond won’t fog up easily since the condensation doesn’t stick to the surface.

Can you tell the difference between F and E diamond?

Is it pointless to wear a VVS Diamond?

In such cases, VVS diamonds can be rather pointless. Of course, all this depends on the design of the piece of jewelry in question – there are ring designs that hide larger portions of their stones with ornaments and side stones, and there are earrings and necklaces that leave their diamonds on a nearly 360-degree display.

Where does a VVS Diamond Go in the grading scale?

VVS diamonds are found in the higher tier of the clarity grading scale and are often sold as “top quality” diamonds. Sadly, many consumers fall into the beginner’s trap of buying a VVS diamond because of misconceptions about diamond clarity.

Can a human eye see a VVS Diamond?

VVS diamonds are known to be one of the highest grades of diamonds in terms of clarity, but what exactly are VVS diamonds?
