Which Diamond Is Better? VVS1 vs. VVS2

When you’re shopping for a diamond, you hear all about the 4Cs: cut, color, carat, and clarity. You’ve probably learned all about the importance of cut and how carats actually look in a diamond, and the final piece of the puzzle is the right clarity. Every diamond is given a clarity score from flawless to included. Choosing clarity matters, but you have leeway with how flawless you need to go. The clarity grading scale is important to keep in mind when purchasing VVS diamonds. A flawless diamond or FL or IF (internally flawless diamonds) are pristine under magnification and to the naked eye, but typically expensive. That’s why many people lean toward a VVS1 or VVS2 diamond. These diamonds are very, very slightly included and are almost always eye-clean.

But which diamond is better? Both VVS1 and VVS2 diamonds have very small inclusions that are only really visible with 10x magnification and not to the naked eye. If you were to put these diamonds next to each other, you would not be able to tell which one is the higher clarity diamond, even though the VVS2 is the lower tier. The VVS1 diamonds have tiny inclusions that are typically off-center, while VVS2 inclusions are also tiny but closer to the diamond’s table. VVS1 diamonds will usually only have 1–2 inclusions while a VVS2 may have more. So which is better? The answer depends on what you’re looking for. If it’s important to you to have as few inclusions as possible, a VVS1 is what you want. If you’re looking for a stunning diamond that won’t have visible inclusions and would cost less, a VVS2 is a better choice.

VVS2 Vs VS Diamond

While a VVS2 diamond has few inclusions, VS diamonds have more as they are considered very slightly included. While both diamonds are beautiful, when choosing a larger stone, VS diamonds are not the best option. When VS diamonds are larger, their inclusions are more visible. Although VVS diamonds are more expensive, if you are looking for a higher clarity diamond, they are the ones to choose from. On the other hand, VS diamonds are still exquisite with few inclusions, just be aware of the size you choose as it can affect the diamond's flaws.

Clarity Grading Scale For VVS Diamonds

When measuring a diamond's clarity grade, diamond experts look closely at a few things. This includes the flaws and inclusions that may be within or on the surface of the diamond. The GIA clarity scale includes 11 grades for diamonds. Diamonds with a higher clarity grade tend to be internally flawless as well as flawless on the surface. This means that they have little to no inclusions that can be seen with the naked eye. Inclusions include chips and cracks inside the diamonds as well as scratches on the surface. In order to see flaws within a diamond, you would need to magnify it 10 times. Furthermore, VVS diamonds have a higher clarity grade as they have very few visible inclusions. With its barely noticeable inclusions, the VVS2 diamond sits higher on the clarity scale.

Lab Grown VVS2 vs. Natural VVS2 Diamonds

Many people wonder why clarity ratings apply to lab grown diamonds, but lab grown diamonds are still susceptible to inclusions. After all, lab grown diamonds are real diamonds. A lab grown VVS2 and a natural VVS2 diamond will be visually the same with the same sparkle and number of inclusions. The main difference is that a lab grown VVS2 diamond will be more affordable than a natural diamond. The price differences can be as much as 30%, this is a great option when shopping for VVS diamonds with a budget. With a VVS2 diamond, you just need to make sure it’s an officially certified diamond before you purchase. Here at Clean Origin, all of our diamonds are certified and more affordable than a natural VVS2 diamond.

Lab grown diamonds are a great way to choose a higher clarity rating without hurting your wallet. A VVS2 diamond has a higher clarity score than a VS diamond, which means they are generally more expensive. Getting a natural VVS2 diamond could be pricey. But choosing a lab grown diamond allows you to choose the clarity grade you want at the price you want. So if a VVS2 rating is what you’re looking for, a lab grown diamond would be the best financial choice for that clarity score.

Best Shapes For VVS2 Diamond

Now that we've covered the basics let's talk about the best VVS diamond shape. Cushion cut, radiant cut, and round brilliant diamonds make great VVS2 shapes, especially for engagement rings. These diamond shapes will give your ring an eye clean diamond with few visible inclusions, as they are the best at hiding flaws. While VVS2 diamonds are stunning, they can also be quite expensive, consider a lab diamond that will offer you flawless diamonds with a stunning shape at a lower cost.

VVS2 Diamond Price

Diamond pricing is a balancing act. All four of the 4C’s affect the price in unique and complex ways. The carat weight has a significant impact on the price, and the larger the weight of your diamond, the more you’ll pay—often, the price increases by about $1,000 for an additional carat. The cut also impacts how much you pay, and the color score does as well. So all of those factors will affect how much you actually end up paying for a diamond.

But what can you expect to pay for a VVS2 diamond? A VVS2 1-carat diamond with an excellent cut and H–I color grade could cost you anywhere from $6,000–$7,000. A lower carat or cut or color score can lower the price of a VVS2 diamond—and vice versa. A VVS1 with the same cut, carat, and color may cost you a few hundred dollars more. A $6,000 VVS2 would be a $6,800 VVS1 diamond.

Why Choose a VVS2 Diamond

A VVS2 diamond is perfect for someone who loves lots of bling and brilliance. These diamonds are the perfect center stone for engagement rings as they feature few inclusions that can be seen with the naked eye, making them eye clean diamonds. Furthermore, although VVS2 diamonds are more expensive compared to other diamonds, they are graded high on the clarity scale which is right below VVS1 diamonds which are the only diamonds that are completely flawless.

All in all, VVS2 diamonds are beautiful and will surely stun a crowed with its glistening finish and eye clean diamond. When searching for the best diamond for your engagement ring, consider a VVS2 diamond.

Choosing a VVS2 Diamond

A VVS2 diamond is a great way to get a dazzling diamond at a lower price than higher clarity grades. A VVS2 should be eye clean without the price tag of a flawless diamond. So if the diamond clarity grade matters to you, a VVS2 diamond is an excellent choice to balance your clarity score and price. If you’re a customer looking for the least expensive eye-clean diamond, a VVS2 might not be the right choice because you can find eye-clean diamonds with lower clarity grades that cost less.

A VVS2 grade diamond is a stunning stone that will provide you with a sparkling diamond that’s very nearly crystal clear. It’s also a more affordable choice than many others.
