Diamond Prices Stabilize
The considerable retail diamond price increases from January through July 2011 have lost momentum. Last month we charted weakening retail diamond prices, and the trend has continued through the month of September. Prices continued to decrease for the 0-2.0 carat range while prices for 2.0-3.0 carats stabilized, and only slight increases were charted for stones of 3.0+ carats.
The list below reflects diamond price changes for September 2011. Prices are based on vendor listings of over 450,000 diamonds in the Pricescope database. The price chart is updated monthly.
