FAQs about Very Slightly Included Diamonds

The VS and SI grades are the most common and the best value for the beauty at Blue Nile.

With all other factors being equal, a VS1 diamond would typically be more expensive than a VS2 diamond. However, many factors go into determining the price of a diamond, including clarity, cut, and carat weight.

If a diamond is "eye clean," it means that the inclusions are too small to see without magnification.

Yes. Some shapes show inclusions more readily than others, such as emerald or Asscher cut diamonds. Clarity is also more important in diamonds that exceed one-carat weight. For these cuts, a clarity of VS1 or better is recommended.

Yes. Carat, cut, clarity, and colour all affect the diamond price, but carat affects it the most.

This ring came out stunning. Looks good in pictures but better in person. Went with a 1.10 Cushion cut VS1 diamond and it looks flawless!

Very Slightly Included Round Diamond Review


The ring is gorgeous and the diamond is even better. I went with an ideal astor, colour F, .56 carat, VSI clarity. I would suggest calling before ordering a ring as they give you information not on the website. For example, this ring comes in three sizes to fit the diamond size. I went with the smallest size and the setting still makes the ring look big. I can't wait to order another ring with a bigger diamond!

Slightly Included Diamond Ring Review

No regrets buying this piece!

I purchased this as a gift for my mother from my newborn son. A diamond solitaire to celebrate her first Mother’s Day as a grandma just seemed right! While it’s listed as minimum I2 quality, the diamond I received was an H and VS2. It’s brilliant! shines very bright due to great cut and clarity. This was my first purchase here and I’m a fan of Blue Nile now!
