Clarity is the quality or state of being clear. Clarity is probably a more accurate description than color in how it relates to diamond. Color should perhaps be called colorlessness instead, since this is what increases the value of a diamond. (A higher color than “G” for example is really not a color at all since it is in the colorless range). But clarity is precisely what we are looking for in a diamond. Some people confuse color and clarity because they perceive clearness as being white or colorless by nature. This is probably true for many other objects, but it is not the case for our subject matter at hand.
