Hello,

What is the difference between the 1 and 2 in the clarity ratings, like SI1 and SI2, VVS1 and VVS2?

Is it the size, number, or position of inclusions?

Size, number and position. Any or all of those could be involved in the decision. In general, more inclusions, larger inclusions or inclusions under the table will tend to favor a lower grade.
