FAQs about Diamonds Under $2,000

Diamonds are graded based on four factors, referred to as the 4Cs, including color, cut, carat, and clarity. Of these, carat plays the biggest role in the final price of the diamond.

Round diamonds are the most expensive. The nine fancy-shape diamonds can be up to 25% less than a round diamond for the same quality and carat weight. Radiant and cushion-cut diamonds are the most budget-friendly of all the fancy shapes.

There are multiple ways to trick the eye into thinking the center stone is larger. First, select a setting with a thin band that makes the center stone look larger in contrast. Surround the center stone with additional stones in a halo setting to make the center stone appear larger.

Make the most of your diamond budget by going just below a half-carat weight or whole-carat weight mark. A .45 carat weight or .90 carat weight diamond will be much less expensive than a .50 or 1.0-carat diamond, and it won't look much different.
