Clarity, one of the “Four C’s,” measures a diamond’s naturally-occuring imperfections (also called ‘inclusions’ or ‘flaws.’). Per gemological standards, diamond clarities are categorized as Flawless (F), Internally Flawless (IF), Very Very Slightly included (VVS), Very Slightly included (VS) and Included (I). Under 10x magnification, Flawless diamonds do not show any inclusions. Higher-clarity diamonds are rarer and pricier. However, many types of inclusions are invisible even to the naked eye, not to mention they give natural diamonds their unique character. Verlas strikes a balance between clarity and price point which is why we offer hand-cut VS and SI clarity diamonds certified by IGI. You can always contact Verlas Concierge for a different diamond clarity on your favorite Verlas designs.
Very Slightly Included
VS diamonds appear flawless to the naked eye, although they have slight inclusions visible only through a microscope. They are an excellent value, touting extraordinary brilliance.
Many SI diamonds are “eye clean,” meaning they look just like VS diamonds to the naked eye, despite flaws you can see only through a microscope. Verlas Master Artisans select and hand-cut only the finest SI diamonds for the best value.
Understanding Real Gold and Platinum.
We only work with enduring, ethically-sourced precious metals of the purest quality. All Verlas jewelry is made from solid gold and platinum. We do not offer coated or filled jewelry. If classic is your style, gold may be your metal. If you’re active and fast-paced, platinum can go the distance.
14K - 18K Solid Gold
Gold is an elegant, classic metal that is resistant to discoloration, and slightly shinier than platinum. To optimize quality and durability, we blend our gold with other metals in varying amounts expressed in karats (18K is richer in gold than 14K). You can choose between elegant, vibrant, and delicate 18K or the ever-popular and always lasting 14K.
Platinum is an exceptionally durable, bright white, hypoallergenic metal that’s 30 times rarer than gold. At 95% purity, Verlas platinum is the ideal canvas to make diamonds and intricate engravings pop to the fullest.
Find the Perfect Fit
Cut a long, narrow strip of paper, and wrap it snugly around your finger.
Using a pencil, mark the spot where the paper meets.
Use a ruler to measure the distance (in mm) from the paper’s edge to the pencil mark.
Select the ring size below that most closely matches your measurement. If you’re in between sizes, we recommend sizing up.
