Wholesale Lab Grown Diamonds vs Natural Wholesale Diamonds
Traditionally, natural, earth-produced diamonds have been seen as the way to go for engagement rings. Natural diamonds are beautiful, from the earth, and timeless. There are a number of major retailers where you can get quality diamonds for expensive prices.
Not to mention, diamonds purchased in store are often sold at an up to 50 percent markup-compared to online, so it makes sense to take advantage of online shopping.
In terms of pricing, the cost of a natural diamond can vary considerably. They’re priced according to the four C’s—cut, clarity, color, and carat. Even with the discounts for shopping online, diamonds can be very expensive. The average American pays around $5,500 for an engagement ring. This leads many prospective husbands and wives to consider alternatives, including lab-grown diamonds.
Lab-grown diamonds are a fairly new phenomenon, which are man-made in one of two ways: High Pressure High Temperature (HPHT) or CVD (Chemical Vapor Deposition). Their quality is pretty good, and is increasing with time. But don’t be fooled. To the untrained eye, they’re indistinguishable, but to experts, a lab-grown diamond can be spotted almost immediately.
Like natural diamonds, they’re priced according to the four C’s. But they’re also considerably cheaper—up to 30 percent lower than their natural counterparts.
Unlike natural diamonds though, the quantity being produced is increasing, meaning the market isn’t capped in any way which undermines long-term price stability.
WHAT FACTORS SHOULD I TAKE INTO CONSIDERATION WHILE SHOPPING FOR A DIAMOND?
In summary, there are 5 that you should consider while buying a diamond, including diamond shape, carat weight, cut, clarity, color, and certification. These are the most important factors that affect the price of a diamond. Please see below summarized information about each of these seven factors.
FACTOR 1: DIAMOND SHAPE
Shape is how the diamond looks, cut refers to the quality of the craftsmanship in which it was cut for a particular shape such as a round cut or an oval cut. The shape of a diamond affects the price because certain shapes needs bigger rough stones than others. For example, a round shape stone is 20-30% more expensive than a princess or cushion shape stone because it would takes (as a guess) a 2 carat rough to make a perfect 1 carat round brilliant cut shaped stone as opposed to a 1.5 carat rough to make a cushion modified brilliant cut diamond (a round 1ct. is 6.5mm in diameter, and a 1ct. princess is roughly 5.5mm in diameter). Because of this reason, round shaped diamonds tend to be higher in price than any other shape diamonds.
FACTOR 2: DIAMOND CARAT WEIGHT
Once you determine what shape diamond you want, the next step is determine how big you want the diamond to be; diamonds are weighed in carats, and each carat is 200 milligram or 0.2 gram. The price of a diamond tends to jump as soon as it reaches a full carat, and the bigger the stone, the higher its price by multiple times because larger stones are rare (more scarce). For example, all other factors being equal, a 2 carat diamond would cost you three to four times the price of a 1ct. and not just double the price of a 1ct because a 2ct is more scarce to mine than a 1ct. (scarcity plays a major role in how the prices of diamonds are determined). As a tip, if you want to save some money, buying say a 1.9ct. might be much cheaper than a full 2ct. because the price jumps significantly once the diamond reach a full carat range.
FACTOR 3: DIAMOND CUT
The cut of a diamond is absolutely critical, and it is the only C the outcome of which is determined by us, human beings, and the quality of our craftsmanship. The cut of a diamond is very technical and there are number of factors that needs to be considered while evaluating a diamond. GIA assigns a cut grade to round diamonds, but they do not have a standard grading system yet for fancy cut stones such as an oval cut diamond, and therefore, do not assign cut grades to them. The good news is that we have published detailed articles about each shape diamond and how you should assess their cut. Please refer to these articles for assessing the cut of a stone you are considering. Three important points to be taken into consideration about the cut are 1) even in GIA excellent cut round diamonds, there is a way to differentiate between an excellent cut diamond and what we refer to as a “super ideal cut” diamond, and the only you can tell the difference is if you are able read their proportions and determine what ideal proportions are (read our proportions article); 2) in both round and fancy cut stones, the depth and table are the most important factors while determining the quality of a cut followed by the size of the girdle, culet, crown angle, and pavilion. Length to width ratios are also important in fancy cut stones; and 3) dealers tend to cut stones deep in order to save the rough stones, so avoid a stone that has high depth. In the manner, a diamond that has a big table is also not recommended because it won’t have optimal fire and brilliance.
FACTOR 4: DIAMOND COLOR
Color in diamonds is the second most important C after cut as it affects the whole diamond, not a particular spot which is often the case with clarity. Color refers to the presence of yellowish hue or tint in a white diamond, and is graded from grade D (colorless) to grade Z (light yellow). D-F grades are considered colorless, G-J are near colorless (however, there is a big difference between G and J color), K to M grades are Faint Yellow, N to R are very light yellow, and S to Z grades are light yellow. Our recommendations would be to go for E-F for investment purposes, G is an excellent color for both investment purposes as well as for maximizing your budget, and H/I are good budget options with J being the lowest we would recommend unless you like some yellowish tint in your diamond in which case go for a very high clarity and K-N color grade diamond.
FACTOR 5: DIAMOND CLARITY
The clarity of a diamondis important because it has a direct effect on the brilliance of the stone. If a stone is full of inclusions, the stone won’t sparkle and will luck luster, fire, and scintillation. The diamond industry has developed a very sophisticated system for grading the clarity of a diamond; it ranges from Flawless (FL) as the highest and Included 3 (I3) as the lowest clarity grade. FL and IF (Internally Flawless) are flawless grades. Very Very Slightly Included 1 (VVS1) and VVS2 are almost flawless clarity grades. Very Slightly Included 1 (VS1) and VS2 are after VVS2 and are also often considered as eye clean diamonds. Slightly Included (SI1) and SI2 are at the lower end of high quality diamonds and are often eye clean in under 1ct. diamonds. In above, 1 carat, the inclusions have to be white non-crystal type inclusions and spread out across the diamond in order for the diamond to be considered an eye clean in SI1 grade. Included 1 (I1) to I3 are the lowest clarity grade diamonds. In our opinion, VVS/VS1 are excellent investment grade diamonds, VS2 is excellent from both an investment and budget perspective, and SI1/SI2 needs great due diligence in above 1 carat diamond in order to ensure that the inclusions do not affect the diamond’s brilliance and the stone is eye clean.
