Rounds are slightly more expensive than the other fancy shapes mentioned, but they face up larger...so it almost evens out. Emerald shapes usually require higher clarity because they show inclusions more than the other shapes.

Where do the other fancy shapes fall??? Specifically, princess cuts.
Princesses are also slightly cheaper than rounds, but face up smaller. Pears and marquise are cheaper and sometimes face up larger than rounds.
