DIAMOND PRICES – THEN AND NOW

LOOSE GIA CERTIFIED DIAMOND PRICES FROM 2005 AND 2017

Diamond Prices Then And Now

Compare Diamond Prices…

I ran across an old certified loose diamond pricing sheet that we used back in 2005

So I thought it’d be fascinating to compare those prices to diamonds that are sold today.

You know, just to find out what’s happened in the diamond industry over the past 12 years

What I found was Interesting.

And surprising!

(You’d think all of the prices would have gone UP, UP, UP!)

But out of 24 diamonds (Certified by GIA), the prices had actually come DOWN. All except TWO large Princess cut diamonds.

Take a Peek…

(I’ve added current 2017 prices to the list for easy comparison…)

GIA Certified Diamond Prices Then And Now

Now only does this chart show what most people were buying and looking for in certified diamonds (VVS-SI Clarity, D-H Color), but it also shows you what cuts were popular then: Brilliant, Marquise, Princess and Emerald.

You’ll see no signs of Radiant, Cushion, Asscher or even Trilliant Cut.



People were buying Emerald Cuts???

Funny to remember, but Emerald Cuts sold like hot cakes!

And today, 2017, you can buy all of these same diamond qualities cheaper than you could back in 2005. Most by savings of a $1,000 or MORE. The only exception being those 2.00 carat Princess cut diamonds (Seems like larger stones have become more valuable), but everything else: KA-CHING!

Also note that in doing my research, that one stone marked above (*), the 1.05 Princess cut, VS1, G, selling for $3,670 is a STEAL… (Compare it with the 1.00 Brilliant cuts above). It’s such a good deal for a great diamond, it will sell ultra-fast!

All the current diamond prices were obtained from James Allen (I grabbed the lowest prices at the time of this post).
