allthingsthatsparkle : Clarity enhanced stones are lower grade clarity stones with flaws easily seen with the eye – the process to clean them up requires drilling microscopic tunnels into the flaw and filling it with a crystal like substance.  This procedure can be done to cracks and fissures as well. 

Good – you can get a much larger diamond for a fraction of the cost.

Bad – GIA cert is no longer valid and they have little resale value because most reputable jewelry stores will not carry them. they are not as strong as a diamond because the drilling compromises their quality.  I would never mount this kind of diamond in a cathedral setting or any setting where the diamond would be subject to hits. 

While I do not think this is a bad thing – I certainly would want to know what the stone rating was prior to the enhancement.
