What Is VVS?


            When you hear VVS, you should think “the best.”  VVS stands for Very Very Slightly.  This refers to the clarity of a diamond or “rock.”  Many people believe that diamonds come from coal, when in fact, they do not.  Coal has very little to do with the diamond.  Many diamonds that have been researched are older than this planet’s first sources of vegetation—which is the source of coal!  In case you were wondering why diamonds are so expensive, part of the reason is that they are ancient stones! 

    Most VVS diamonds have small inclusions that are totally undetectable to the human eye.  Inclusions are comprised of any solids, liquids or gases that were trapped with the diamond as it was formed.  Inclusions include both natural and manmade sources like:

  • Feathers
  • Crystals or minerals
  • Knots
  • Cavities
  • Cleavage
  • Bearding
  • Internal graining
  • Pinpoint
  • Laser lines
  • Laser drill hole


Then there are blemishes, which include:

  • Polish lines
  • Grain boundaries
  • Naturals
  • Scratches
  • Nicks
  • Pits
  • Chips
  • Breaks
  • Dark spots
  • Light spots
  • Abrasions


            The fewer the inclusions, the rarer and more expensive the diamond.  Other factors that make a diamond exclusive besides clarity include color, cut, and carat (altogether these are known as the 4 ‘s). VVS grade diamonds have such small inclusions that even gem professionals have a tough time seeing even with the help of 10x magnification.  VVS is only two levels below the top and most expensive grade called Flawless.  The levels of graded diamonds include:


Flawless (F)

Internally Flawless (IF)

Very, Very Slightly Included (VVS)

Very Slightly Included (VS)

Slightly Included (SI)

Included (I)


            Why is VVS worth it?  Other standards just don’t compare.  With VVS, you get insanely good quality without the insanely high price.  Nothing will shine as like VVS.  If you sacrifice quality, you’re throwing away your money.  Cheap diamonds with cracks on or near the surface can compromise the integrity of the gem and cause it to fracture. 

            While many inclusions aren’t even visible to the naked eye, diamonds that have fewer inclusions let in catch light and shine brighter.  Therefore, the purer the rock, the flashier it looks.  You can get all the bling, but still save thousands of dollars.  VVS diamonds are beautiful and can be seen as an investment.  Unlike some expensive purchases that lose value, VVS diamonds can appreciate over time

            VVS jewelry has a prominent role in the rip hop realm.  Countless rappers have doted upon VVS stones in their songs, more than any other type of jewelry.  The following hip hop rappers rave about their VVS bling:
