Diamond Pricing


Recommended Posts

I'm looking at two emerald cut stones:


Here are specs:


Weight: 1.55 ct

Color: G

Clarity: VS1

Depth: 64.0%

Table: 66%

Culet: none

Polish: VG

Symmetry: G

Price $15,250


Weight 1.55 ct

Color: E

Clarity: VVS1

Depth: 62.5%

Table: 67%

Culet: small

Polish: VG

Symmetry: G

Price 18,100


I am interested in opinions on the price, please. Would the second warrant almost $3K more in price. If you need any more info, let me know. I have a copy of the GIA report.


Thanks in advance.

Yes, stone one (the "cheaper" one) is

8.05 x 5.81 x 3.72 mm


The more expensive stone is:

8.28 x 5.73 x 3.58 mm


A price recommendation would be helpful for negotiations. They are a local reputable "high-end" jeweler, so would expect some premium, but I don't want to get ripped off either.


Many thanks.

The measurements and girdles are fine. Unless you think you can negotiate several thousands of dollars off those prices then you are going to pay typical retail. If you want to see what something comparable would sell over the internet, check a few websites.


I can think of two that come to mind right away :)
