polish describes how smoothly the facets of a diamond have been polished, whether any marks are visible from the polishing wheel, and how defined the edges of each facet are. Since these characteristics are rarely visible to the unaided eye, for an excellent value, look for a polish grade of very good or good, though the higher grades of ideal and excellent are also recommended. Avoid diamonds with polish grades of fair or poor, as the quality of their polish may affect the brilliance of the diamond.

The degree of polish on a finished stone. For the highest grade of polish, look for an ideal (ID), excellent (EX), or very good (VG) AGSL graded diamond, and an excellent (EX) or very good (VG) GIA graded diamond. For the best balance of price and quality, look for a GIA or AGSL polish grade of good (G). Avoid diamonds with polish grades of fair (F) or poor (P), as the quality of their polish may affect the brilliance of the diamond.
This refers to a diamond's surface blemishes which do not affect its clarity grade such as polishing lines or scratches. Polish is graded on laboratory reports as either ideal (AGS) excellent, very good, good, fair, or poor (GIA).
Surface smoothness of a diamond or gemstone. Also describes the quality of polishing, the process of removing excess parts stone to expose its facets.

From poor to excellent, the finish of a gemstone is graded as polish.
Refers to any blemishes on the surface of the diamond which are not significant enough to affect the clarity grade of the diamond. Examples of blemishes that might be considered as 'polish' characteristics are faint polishing lines and small surface nicks or scratches.
