Why is a 1 carat diamond a popular size ?

People tend to prefer rounded numbers, this is why a size like 1 carat is highly in demand. 1 carat diamonds are even more exclusive as it not only represents a rounded number but it is also a whole carat. Another reason why it is a popular sizeis because it is also the standard people use when looking for a diamond engagement ring. 

Lastly as this carat size is highly in demand, there is a noticeable price difference between a 1 carat and a .99 carat diamond , the premium for a 1 carat can be as high as 20% while the difference between a 0.99 and 0.98 carat is only around 1%.

 

How much does a 1 carat diamond cost?

The average price people spend on a 1 carat diamond is around 4000-6000 Euro. The very best qualities can cost  over  16000 Euro ,depending on their characteristics and overall quality. If you are willing to make concessions in colour and clarity you can already find 1 carat diamonds below 2000 Euro even.
