Did you know that each diamond's price is not only based on its colour and clarity but many other important factors such as its cut - very important factor (Ideal, excellent, very good, good, fair, poor); polish (EX,VG,GD,FR); lustre (EX,VG,GD,FR); girdle thickness; fluorescence (N,FNT,SLT,MED,STG,VST); culet; symmetry (EX,VG,GD,FR); spread, treatments (natural, enhanced, fracture filled etc) and where the inclusions are situated etc. Is the diamond certified, if yes, is the certification provided from a reputable grading laboratory such as GIA? Is the diamond branded? Is the shade and lustre of the diamond stated? Is the diamond eye clean? Does the diamond contain a brown or green shade (tinge), or does it has a milky or cloudy appearance to it? Note that diamonds with BGM (Brown, Green or Milk tinge) would be much cheaper than diamonds with no BGM.
All of the above factors influence a diamond's price despite being the same size, colour and clarity which is beautifully demonstrated on the below image at the bottom of this page. Hence when you go and visit a jewellery store or look online, there can be huge variances in prices for diamonds and/or engagement rings that can be the same size, colour and clarity but has vast variances in prices. For example, a 1ct D SI2 mined diamond can be selling from under $7000 to $18000+. If a person is not aware of the above factors, then they may assume that the Jeweller or jewellery store is so expensive or taking advantage of them as the diamonds they are looking at or comparing are the same size, colour and clarity but they have a huge differences in price. No two diamonds are exactly the same and the above is the reasons why and each diamond's price is determined by the above-mentioned factors, not only their colour and clarity. Therefore, when you are buying jewellery or comparing prices of diamonds, engagement rings or jewellery in general make sure you are looking or comparing an apple with an apple.
