Diamond pricing

Diamond pricing is one of the best examples of supply and demand laws: a diamond is worth only what one is willing to pay for it. Just like the gold price, a benchmark is determined twice each business day on the London bullion market, every week official diamond pricing lists are published.
You can determine the benchmark price of the diamond based on the characteristics defined by its certificate.
Diamond pricing doesn’t increase proportionally to its weight; it depends on the color and clarity. In principle, colorless diamonds are more valuable (with the exception of Fancy Colors). More than 80% of cut diamonds are yellowish in tint and are subsequently less prized. Intensely tinted, fancy color diamonds are very rare, and thus very valuable.
