The trouble with this is that there is no official definition for “eye clean” and so someone may find a diamond eye clean while another would be able to see the inclusion(s). Also, blue nile describes eye clean as 12 inches if I’m not mistaken, which is not as specific as I would be. I would want it eye clean at all angles and all distances. I would work with a vendor who allows for more feedback and images of a diamond you’re looking to buy.

I don’t think eye clean is really ever “eye clean”. I would go up in clarity if you do decide to use bluenile.

@Letsy29:  I wouldn’t rely on an “eye clean” description of clarity. Look at other diamonds in person to determine what level of clarity and type of inclusions are acceptable to you. Also, view the GIA report to see where and what kind of inclusions there are.
