Determining the price of a diamond or its value involves many of the factors we discuss on our diamond grading page. These include the 4 Cs (carat weight, cut, color, and clarity), and other factors are also taken into account such as polish, symmetry, fluorescence and shape. In the wholesale market, diamonds are priced per unit of weight, referred to as "per carat."
