IF to I2 clarity, options are available in our diamond price estimator.
For the highest clarity grades, a qualified grader would be needed to inspect the diamond under strong magnification to find flaws. When looking for diamonds, we advise starting with those that are rated VS2 and higher because they will have excellent clarity and flaws that are invisible to the unaided eye.
The most renowned and well-known diamond grading company is GIA. Although AGS has less stringent requirements, it is also well-known that some jewelers send their products there to receive higher marks.

Field experts need specialized equipment to decipher the physical and spectral differences between the mined and lab-sourced diamonds.
–Lab Grown Diamond vs Diamond Simulant: Which One to Choose?
