How much does a 2-carat diamond cost?

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.

Where to buy 2-carat engagement rings

When it comes to classic 2-carat diamond ring shapes, is it worth it to purchase high-end branded jewellery? It depends on your preferences. Brands such as Tiffany & Co. have many rings with beautiful and unique designs that justify the brand markup. However, classic diamond shapes, especially solitaire rings, have little or no special design, and the high price is mostly comprised of brand markups. For example, a singularly elegant ring featuring a 2.07 carat Round brilliant cut diamond, I color, VVS2 clarity grade from Tiffany & Co, costs $46,800. Keep in mind that it's always cheaper to create classic high-end rings together with a jeweller. You can get the same luxury design for an appealing price. Contact Diamond Registry for consultation, and one of our experts will guide you through designing your dream ring.

What Are the Wholesale Prices of a 2-Carat Diamond Ring?

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 prices are listed in USD,
  • The 2-carat diamond price is defined as per carat. It means you should multiply the number by 2 to get the exact price you can count on while buying 2-carat engagement rings or other types of jewelry.

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.

1 carat vs. 2 carat: Why is it worth investing in a bigger size?

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.

  • Get the professional consultation from an expert to pick the best combination of color and clarity grades,
  • Source a wholesale gemstone of an Excellent cut,
  • Invest in custom-made jewelry with the selected jewels.

You can save on a 2-carat diamond price several times: while making a wise choice in this weight, picking the right vendor, and saving on a jewelry setting. This is the exact service our experts offer.

Below you can find tips and tricks that will help you pick the best 2-carat engagement rings.

The most popular setting for 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.

Which prongs types you can choose from

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.

How 4C’s and shape impacts the diamond cost

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.

How to get a piece of personalized jewelry for a reasonable price

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.
