Diamonds in the 0.25 to 0.9 carat range were most in demand at
the fair. On the other hand, 5-carat and larger diamonds were selling, but for lower prices than
usual. This indicates more tolerance for
fluorescence in the colorless, near colorless and faint yellow ranges for large stones.
The price for rough (uncut) diamonds has increased, which in
the long term may affect polished diamond prices. As a result, it's possible
that customers buying diamonds may seek
to buy polished diamonds now, before a possible price rise.
Record breaking diamonds
In the meantime, take a look at some of the previous news items
about diamonds, both found or sold at auctions at record prices. Some of these diamonds are considered
medium-sized, while others belong to what's known as large gemstones. Although it's usually diamonds over 25 carats
that have their names, some of these medium-size diamonds also have their names, owing to their often interesting
history, usually related to who owned them. The more carats a diamond has, the higher the price per carat,
according to Jean-Baptiste Tavernier's law.
