Analysis:

This chart, produced by Antwerp’s Diamond High Council, looks at diamond prices based on a baseline of 100.

From looking at this chart, we see several things: The overall price index of one-caraters and half-caraters did not increase from the first six months of 2005 as opposed to the first six months of 2006. Half-caraters seemed especially to go down.

This is surprising — since these are the "bread and butter" of our industry. This chart does not consider stones of larger than a carat and a half — which went up in price.
