Let’s look into the risk involved of purchasing diamonds online. Majority online vendors do not tell you if the diamonds are superior and have excellent brilliance. You usually end up looking at the price and 4’cs of the diamond to make your final selection. There is no way of knowing if the diamond is milky/weak in brilliance or NOT EYE CLEAN as its not stated on the GIA certificate. You may end up purchasing a diamond that is lifeless and doesn’t sparkle !!
Eye clean diamonds are where the inclusions are not visible to the naked eye. Generally, diamonds with a clarity grading of SI 1-I3 tend to be “Not Eye Clean” where inclusions are visible by naked eyes. Avoid purchasing diamonds that are “Not Eye Clean” as the flaws are visible to the naked eye affecting the beauty of the diamond.
