A two-carat diamond is the second most popular choice for jewelry. And there’s no surprise: 2-carat engagement rings will look elegant yet remarkable on your fingers. Many buyers fancy the idea of getting these rings, but picking the right stone requires courage and relevant knowledge of tips and tricks on how to build jewelry.
Two-carat diamonds are found frequently, yet still rare. That’s why you can meet several pitfalls on the way to getting the jewels of this weight. They will start from finding a reliable vendor till determining the quality of the selections made. For not getting in trouble while making jewelry purchases, Diamond Registry experts share here the essential information about 2-carat diamond price.
|2 carat diamond||i.f. $||vvs1 $||vvs2 $||vs1 $||vs2 $||si1 $||si2 $|
|2 carat diamond||i.f.||vvs1||vvs2||vs1||vs2||si1||si2|
The exact sum of the 2-carat diamond price depends on many factors. Like any weight category, the other 4C’s (meaning color, clarity, and cut) will make the greatest difference for your budget. Because of them, 2-carat engagement rings can cost from $10,000 to $90,000 by not taking into account what you’ll spend on the setting.
For example, the average 2-carat diamond price for a round jewel of VVS1 clarity and D Color grade would be 2 x $39,050 = $78,100. If you want a bigger stone, you can select, for example, a 2.5-carat round VVS1 F Color grade for 2.5 x $28,600 = $71,500 + setting's cost. You can find more detailed information about the 2-carat diamond price in the chart below.
Anyway, it’s important to decide on color and clarity grade before checking the price per carat in the chart above. It’s much more important than the size for calculating a 2-carat diamond price. And remember: you should never compromise on anything less than an excellent cut grade.

Our experts work with wholesale diamonds to help you save on jewelry like a PRO. The approximate cost of our two-carat jewels of a top cut quality is presented in the table above.To use our chart, take into consideration 2 things:
The wholesale prices range between $5,060 and $48,400 per carat, while the average 2-carat diamond price for GIA-certified stones would range between $10,120 and $96,800.
We recommend investing in the two-carat weight category — and for wholesale price. Compared to other weight categories, 2-carat stones are found more often, yet they are still rare. While one in a million diamonds are of a 1-carat weight, only 1 in 15 million jewels have two carats.
To buy your diamonds at the best available price, always buy at wholesale price.You can calculate the average wholesale estimate this way: multiply the price per carat by the number of carats; which in this case means multiplied by 2. It is also a good start to calculate the cost for any jewelry, like a 2-carat diamond price for earrings. Please note: the price for any earrings you should multiply at least by 2 as you are looking for a pair of diamonds.
We recommend investing in greater weight. Even though the 2-carat diamond price is higher, this difference is totally worth it. If you make a wise decision about all the parameters, you’ll get a more sparkling, impressive, and simply bigger gemstone. But remember: the value of a diamond is determined by the quality of each of the 4Cs grades, including clarity, cut, and color.
Many people mistakenly take carats as a size unit. But the truth is this measurement scale is the standard for weighing precious stones. One carat stands for 200 milligrams, or 0.007 ounces. That’s why a two-carat precious stone is around 400 milligrams.
This parameter can indicate the approximate size of the diamond, though. In this case, you can use a chart comparing carats to millimeters and see the estimated diameter (for round diamonds) or height and width (for diamonds of other shapes). For example, a Round Brilliant Cut, weighing 400 milligrams, has a diameter of 8.2mm. Taking this number as a must-have size estimation is wrong, though — the cut grade and shape can bring their own adjustments in this estimation.
Thanks to their characteristics, two-carat diamonds look incredible in an engagement ring, being both noticeable and modest. Moreover, their size makes them the right choice for other jewelry types. For example, they create a sparkling set of earrings.

Below you can find tips and tricks that will help you pick the best 2-carat engagement rings.
The top-wanted style for 2-carat engagement rings is solitaire. It maintains its popularity by its simplicity, as the viewer’s eye will be drawn to the center stone, the place you want the eye to go without getting distracted. In this setting, the natural gemstone stands alone and is free from distraction showing its full beauty and size. If you’re looking for a timeless ring that sends a message of power and simplicity, a solitaire engagement ring will certainly do it.
TIP: the slimmer the band of your ring, no matter if it's 14k white gold or 18k white gold, the more the center stone stands out and appears larger in size.
The timeless setting of the solitaire ring has maximum visibility due to the diamond’s prongs. The prong is the little metal pieces that hold the gemstone and are usually found on its corners, as those places are the strongest points. They are also the holders to let the light pass through the diamond to maximize the center stone's natural shimmer. The four-cornered prongs are the standard setting and allow more light exposure. Otherwise, you’ll be having it placed diagonally.
For a two-carat diamond, having more prongs is not recommended. Six or eight will make it appear smaller. The larger the jewel, the more likely people go for a six-prong setting to hold it more securely. However, the chance of you losing the diamond is very rare if the ring is set well. But since the four-prong setting is already classic, new ways to hold the stone in place have been designed. Ask our experts to get more information.
4C’s are the parameters that indicate the diamond quality, meaning carat weight, color, clarity, and cut grades. They influence the price the most. In its turn, the main change shape does is size, meaning that the gemstone can seem larger or smaller in certain appearances. You can disregard shape in your calculations and think of the 4C’s instead.
When you have found the perfect stone, you will be able to create your own ring. Whether you want to go for white gold solitaire with trellis six prongs or rather a yellow gold three stone setting, everything is possible. Our in-house jewelers can help you visualize your dream 2-carat engagement ring and bring it to life. Feel free to ask for advice for ring design or the actual loose diamond via our inquiry form.
