For their size, diamonds sure can get expensive!

Below, we answer some common questions we get about diamonds and their pricing.

Are diamonds priced based on their 4 C’s? (Cut, Clarity, Colour, and Carat)

This is a great question, and the short answer is … kind of. The four C’s help determine a price range the d iamond will fall into, however, two diamonds matching exactly in the 4 c’s could differ in price by thousands of dollars. The diamonds final price is determined by how beautiful the stone looks in person.
