Diamond Price Lists

diamond price trend chart 2009The diamond price trend chart on the right shows the overall trend of diamond prices taking in to consideration the general movement of diamond prices, the various dealer and trade prices of diamonds, including and averaging out the various cut, color, clarity and so forth for the past year.

The price of diamonds can very considerably as there are many factors that influence the price of a diamond. The primarily consideration, however is the weight. It is the weight that is used as a benchmark for pricing diamonds on a week to week basis. The color, clarity and cut all play a part of course and then there is the premium or mark up added to the cost from the original producer right through to the jeweler who's shop you walk into to buy a diamond.

Here are some charts below that cover the main popular diamonds. These are listed in carat size from 5 carats down to half a carat. Each chart contains the main clarity gradings from the top IF through to S12 listed across the top as well as the color gradings from D, Pure White, down to M, lightly yellowish/Tinted color-champagne. The figures in the squares are current estimated high cash asking prices for diamonds. Of course prices do vary so this is more of a rough guide to give you an idea of what you can expect.

More detailed information about the Cut, Color, Clarity and carat weight are available from the links on the left.

There are two sets of charts, the first set on the left is for Round Whites and the second set on the right is for Fancy Colored Stones.

The Round is perhaps the most popular of the shapes available. This is a good indicator of the diamond price for the size and quality of most diamond rounds. Some shapes, such as the Princess and the more unusual cuts might be slightly lesser in price.

Each set has a table for each weight of .5 to .69ct, .70 to .89ct, .90 to .99ct, 1.00ct, 1.5ct, 2.00ct, 3.00ct, 4.00ct and 5ct.

How much you pay for a particular diamond can also vary from dealer to dealer. These are just the approximate prices to give you some idea of the prices you would expect to pay for a typical diamond. The diamond prices given purely for information and guidance only. The actual price you pay is likely to be very different and could be anywhere up to 20 percent either side of the values given.

You might notice some inconsistences in each matrix. For example, you will note that the difference between a 1ct G color VS2 clarity diamond and a 1ct H color VS2 clarity diamond is $1000 dollars, yet between the same G VS2 and a 1 ct F VS2 is only $500. Much of this is to do with rarity at the time of pricing of these various stones. So using a professional diamond dealer can help here as there can be many ways to spot a good deal taking advantage of these inconsistances. It might require some research and due diligence but is well worth it if it can save you a few thousand dollars for what could be, very little difference in the actual diamonds.

It is worth mentioning that buying a diamond that is one or two points below a carat level can make a big difference to the price you pay. In other words, instead of buying a diamond that is exactly one or two carats say. Maybe picking one that is ever so slightly below the one or two carat weight, even by just a point or two, can reduce the price by a few hundred dollars and the difference is barely discernible.

A recommended jeweler for accurate diamonds is James Allen Professional Jewelers as each diamond purchased comes with a GIA report and is certified conflict free
