How do I find out what the wholesale prices are on GIA diamonds?

Is thier a way to check online?

Thank you,

Looking at the chart, what do the numbers and letter for a cut represent for example A1. Also, I noticed that on the chart for the same cut range, and carat range that a E color SI1 is less expensive than a F color SI1. Why would that be? Thanks.

What would be the letter and number that would correlate with a GIA Excellent cut diamond? Thanks.

That is a very broad question.

Generally 1A/B, and some 2As, although there are some girdle and minor facet disagreements.

You can play with different combos in HCA or Facetware.

From what I have learned on here (trying not to offend anyone), if the diamond has an AGS certificate, it has a slightly higher price than a diamond with a GIA certificate. An AGS Ideal also has stricter standards than an GIA Excellent. So...IF the E diamond is a GIA Excellent, and the F is an AGS Ideal, the AGS may cost more. Plug in the numbers of both stones into the Holloway Cut Advisor (HCA) to make sure they BOTH fall under 2.0. You may find that some GIA Excellent stones do not get under 2.0 (ie are bad performers). In general tho, if a stone has a better cut (ie better performer), you will be paying more.

That would make sense except I got the information from the above link for 1A Cut 1.50-1.99 cts Round: Average $/carat

1A Cut 1.50-1.99 cts Round:

It happens. There are less E than F stones anyway, sample size is smaller, and EGL stones are included... obviously, ceteris paribus, the E>F.

Showing 1 to 25 of 192 All diamonds matched. Unlike 'in-house', many of these diamonds are virtual listings. Read more...

Round shape, 1.5–1.99 cts, E color, SI1 clarity, 58–62.3% depth, 53–58% table, $1000–99999,

52/192 E color are EGL

35/300 F color are EGL
