There are many different facets to understanding diamonds. Firstly, you have to understand which factors determine diamond quality. This includes carat weight, color grade, cut grade and diamond clarity commonly referred to as the 4Cs.

The 4Cs will help you to decide what kind of diamond you may want to purchase – would you rather go for a 3 carat radiant cut diamond D color VVS1 or a 6 carat diamond ring G color VS2? Or would you rather go for something entirely different like a yellow diamond? Part of deciding on the type of diamond, is to know what would be possible within your budget.

The quality of wholesale diamonds

wholesale diamondsThere is no reason why the quality of wholesale diamonds should be any less than retail diamonds sold by famous brands. A Cushion Shape wholesale diamond graded as 5.35 carat G VS1 will be the same as any branded diamond of the same certified grade. Wholesale diamonds, like any diamond, should always be issued with a diamond certification. For this, we recommend the GIA as the most authoritative and accurate gem laboratory. The term wholesale if often associated with buying in bulk. However, this is not the case when you buy diamonds at wholesale prices. Whether you purchase one 0.5 carat diamond or three 2 carat diamonds is up to you.

Enter the world of diamond experts and buy loose diamonds at wholesale prices

There are many different stages before a diamond reaches a store after it is uncovered from a diamond mine. Buying wholesale diamonds essentially means you are buying diamonds at a stage in the supply chain before they end up in retail stores and diamond shops. Buying loose diamonds means you get there before they are sent to jewelry manufacturers. By eliminating the middle men between you and the diamond you are saving yourself up to 50% off retail prices.

Wholesale diamond prices – understanding the price chart

When buying diamonds like professionals do, you must be able to understand how the pricing system works for wholesale diamonds. For every carat size, there is a price chart that denotes the diamond price per different color grade and clarity grade for that particular carat size. That price is called the Price per Carat, and does not reflect the total price. To calculate the total wholesale diamond prices, you have to multiply that number by the size of the diamond.

For example: If the Price per Carat for a Round 3 carat F VS1 is $33,000, then the total wholesale price is 3 x $33,000 = $99,000.

GIA diamonds

The GIA is considered to be the most authoritative source on diamond grading, as they uphold the highest standards recognized by the diamond industry worldwide. In fact, the grading systems from other gem labs are adapted from the original loose diamond grading system developed by the GIA. That is why true diamond experts will always prefer to work with GIA certified diamonds. Read More.
