Price changes in round diamonds were more pronounced in goods of less than 1 carat, albeit that there was less visible movement across all sizes than in previous months. Goods in the 1.00-1.24-carat range were largely static. Many items in the 3.00-3.99-carat range showed positive movements, but there was very little change in items sized 4 carats to 5 carats.
The overall polishedprices index failed to hold on to gains made at the start of the week and drifted back steadily.
