It depends on what you’re looking for. Clarity is how many imperfections your diamond has. It ranges from a scale where you can see the imperfection with the naked eye vs. seeing it under a microscope with x10 zoom and up. 

To me, clarity was important as well as the color of the diamond. I found that was more important to me over the carat size. Everyone is different though…to some, the quality of the diamond isn’t as important as the size. It’s totally your preference.

A single 1 ct diamond will cost a lot more than a bunch of little diamonds totalling 1 ct or even 2ct depending on the make up of the ring.  It’s very possible for a 1ct solitare ring to be upwards of 10-12k depending on all 4C’s… while a 2ct total ring can be only say 2k. (wild guess)  Clarity is only as important as you make it..

I have a 1.3 carat diamond that was in the 10k-12K range.  To me the clarity and cut of the diamond was more important then the actual carat.  I wanted my diamond to really sparkle.

Clarity is also more important with step cut shapes. Its much more difficult to see an inclusion in a round stone than an emerald/asscher cut. Honestly its personal taste. I would not worry about rings that other people have or how much yours is worth. I’m sure your Fiance paid a reasonable amount for what he got, and if neither of you know/care about the stats then there is no reason to try and figure out what they are.
