sell diamond engagement ringDid you know that diamond prices change from day to day, much like gold or antiques? These fluctuations can be caused by market trends, the time of year, etc. In addition to market conditions, diamond shapes and diamond grades have an impact on diamond price. Diamond shape refers to the 10 popular diamond silhouettes. The price differences between shapes, which we’ll discuss later, vary considerable due to demand and manufacturing costs.

The 4 Cs of diamonds cut, color, clarity and carat weight all contribute to the price of a diamond.

Every diamond has its own unique characteristics, flaws and beauties, much like a snowflake has its own unique structure. All of these factors vary considerably from diamond to diamond. The particular combination of each 4 C grade as well as details such as diamond polish, symmetry, and fluorescence, inform an individual diamond’s value.

It’s important to note that some differences in color and clarity are barely noticeable without the aid of a jeweler’s loupe. In addition, it’s often more of a personal preference depending on what diamond you’ve got your eye on. Understanding the 4 Cs and deciding which qualities matter most to you personally — can help you save a great deal of money when buying a diamond.  Figure out which elements of a diamond are most important to you, and narrow down the options until you find that perfect diamond! If you’re still unsure about the 4 C’s, our experts at D. Atlas Estates will be happy to assist you.
