● Wholesale diamond price list
When you are looking to buy loose diamonds at wholesale prices, you will come across the diamond price list (or diamond price chart). On the diamond price list, the diamond prices are arranged by carat size and compared to color grade and clarity grade. The prices you see are referred to as the Price per Carat and does not reflect the total price yet. To calculate the estimated total wholesale price for that specific loose diamond, you need to multiply the number by the size of the diamonds.
For example: If the Price per Carat for a Fancy Shape 5 carat G VS2 is $33,220, then the total wholesale price is 5 x $33,220 = $166,100.
