Interactive GIA Education Presentation
Diamonds that are absolutely clear are very rare, the most sought-after and therefore the most expensive. But most diamonds have inclusions — scratches, trace minerals or other tiny characteristics that can detract from the pure beauty of the diamond. The GIA, AGS and IGI labs use a detailed system of rules and standards to summarize, note and mark the number, location, size, and type of inclusions present in a diamond.

SI1, SI2, SI3: Slightly Included: Inclusions are visible under 10x magnification, and may be visible with the unaided eye. A good diamond value. if you select a diamond from this category please contact us to ensure the diamond is eye clean.

I1, I2, I3: Included: MDC does not carry diamonds of I-grade clarity.
Which Clarity Grade Is Best?
We recommend that you select an "eye-clean" diamond — one that has no inclusions visible to the unaided eye. An excellent value, diamonds of this clarity are much less expensive than IF or FL grade diamonds and typically do not contain visible inclusions that detract from the beauty of the diamond. If you're considering an SI grade diamond, call to speak to a diamond and jewelry consultant who will review the diamond to ensure the inclusions are not visible with the unaided eye. But, if you'd rather not compromise on clarity yet are budget conscious, choose a diamond with a good cut and H or lower color.

You cannot go wrong with MDC Diamonds and Moishy.

My ring just arrived. It is stunningly beautiful. I could not have imagined a more perfect ring for me. It fits perfect and feels perfect. I can't wait to renew my vows with my husband and start wearing it. I was a little skeptical to buy a ring online, but Moishy was so nice and took time to walk me through everything I should be concerned about in selecting the center stone. The setting called for a unique size & dimensions. Moishy searched for a long time to find the best possible radiant diamond that exceeded my expectations for my budget. Also I had to go with platinum because of allergies to gold that I experienced with my original wedding ring. It was no problem to get the band I wanted in platinum. Moishy even suggested using rose gold to accent the celtic design that I really love about the band. I just trusted him based on our interactions and I was not disappointed. It looks fantastic.
