Why SI2 diamonds are a great purchase option
SI2 clarity diamonds seem to be a smart purchase only when you buy them “eye-clean”. All diamonds have imperfections – they either occur while forming deep in the earth’s crust or while the diamond cutter is making the cuts, but the ultimate goal is that the inclusions are not visible to the naked eye. However, the SI2 diamonds are known for the fact that their inclusions are highly visible when compared to the other grade diamonds like SI1 and VS2.
If you can find an eye-clean SI2 diamond, it would be one of the best deals you could ever make. But if you cannot find an eye-clean SI2 diamond, we recommend you to bear the extra cost of an SI1 diamond. The price difference between SI2 and SI1 is not too much, but having a diamond with noticeable blemishes may diminish its beauty and future value.
