HOW IS HPHT DIAMOND VALUE CALCULATED?The value of an HPHT Diamond is dependent upon many factors. Remember, diamond prices fluctuate as does any commodity. The initial step in the valuation process begins with the grading process by the Geological Institute of America (GIA), who grades every diamond according to the industry standards. Every diamond is given a grade according to the 4 C’s: color, clarity, cut and carat weight. This grade determines the quality of the diamond.
Color – Color is graded from D to Z, with D being the best grade. Less color higher grade.
Clarity – Clarity is based on the number of imperfections contained within the diamond — the more imperfections, the lower the value.
Cut - The most valuable are round diamonds. Other diamond shapes are worth much less than round, such as cushions, princess cuts, and radiants.
Carat Weight – This is the simplest valuation of the 4 C’s. As the weight or carat of a diamond increases, the value of the diamond increases accordingly.
Finally, the other factors considered in the valuation process include:
- Real vs. Fake
