  Chip:  
  A tiny chip in the diamond caused in cutting or from a sharp blow. Larger, more serious chips can result in considerable weight loss. Of course, if your diamond has a higher clarity grade, the chip may be impossible to see with the naked eye, and may be hard to find under a 10X magnification jeweler's loupe.
