What determines the price of a diamond?

  • The 4 C’s are important, but there’s more!

Everyone knows that diamonds have a high price tag because of their rarity. Most buyers have no problem to spend high amounts on them. However, few can grant a fair price for a diamond. It requires some expertise. The 4 C’s; carat, colour, clarity and cut; determine also the price, but there is more! We will inform you about this subject.

The price of a diamond with a perfect cut brilliant

A perfect cut brilliant of 1.00 carat has an average diameter of 6.5 mm. Some may even be 6 mm, but the stone won’t shine at his best. Such a diamond is seen as ‘too fat’. With a diameter of 6 mm, the ideal carat is 0.80. Because of the lower weight, this diamond will be cheaper. Thus, a 0.90 carat diamond is also considerably cheaper than a diamond of 1.00 carat. With BAUNAT, we seek the right proportions, because we want to guarantee the best quality and the most brilliance. The diameter is indeed very important because it determines the overall view of, for example, a diamond ring.

The price of a diamond depends on the economy

The price of a diamond is also determined by the international economic situation. The price is influenced by supply and demand. Western countries recently went through an economic crisis, so fewer people spend money on luxury items. Those days seem over, and now we see a significant growth in demand for diamond jewellery, especially in countries like China, Brazil and the Middle East. In these countries, enormous amounts of money are spent on the finest coloured diamonds and rare white diamonds.
