Did she hint at the possibility of wanting a two-carat engagement ring? Two carats of diamonds are excellent, and any famous bride is showing off their diamonds of more than 2 carats. The two-carat ring is both fashionable and beautiful. But it comes at a price.
For ordinary people, most people will assume that there is not much price difference between 1 carat and 2-carat diamonds; but the price difference can be huge. Two-carat diamonds are often referred to as statement diamonds. The vast size will make people turn their heads, and the woman wearing it will like to show it to all her family and friends.
So how much does this cost? The price of a two-carat diamond is between US$8,000 and US$50,000. We know that this is a huge price range for stones of the same carat weight! Read on to learn how to determine the scope and get the ring for her at a low price.
First, let’s start explaining the price of diamonds.
Before jumping into the cost of a two-carat diamond, we first need to clarify a few things. First of all, one of the most significant factors contributing to diamonds is the price of is the “four Cs” that most of us have heard. The clarity, cut, color, and carat weight of a diamond greatly influence the final price of the diamond.
Diamond cut: It has a significant influence on the true beauty of the diamond. Cut refers to the angle and proportions that reflect the diamond to your eyes in some way. If the diamond has a good cut, the light will enter the diamond and produce bright sparks.
Diamond clarity: represents the inherent characteristics of diamonds. These characteristics are based on inclusions inside the diamond and flaws on the outside of the diamond. Clearer, flawless diamonds will cost more.
Diamond color: In some diamonds, yellow or brown can be seen, representing the color of the diamond. Diamonds that are colorless and close to pure white will be precious and more expensive.
Carat weight: The higher the carat weight, the more you will spend. This is mainly due to the rarity of the stone becoming larger. Finding larger diamonds is much more complicated than finding smaller diamonds.
If you go to a well-known jeweler, each of their diamonds will be graded and evaluated by an independent grading laboratory (such as GIA or AGS). Other factors are also considered, such as the overall beauty of the gem, symmetry, fluorescence, etc. However, in the final price, Four C’s will always play the most significant role. We can’t just give you an answer about how much a two-carat ring costs because it depends on the quality of the stone and varies greatly.
Now, how does this help you understand the cost of a two-carat ring?
Now that you have a better understanding of the four Cs and the meaning of diamonds, you may have a better understanding of why prices fluctuate. But let us take a closer look at the cost of a two-carat ring. We can’t provide you with a two-carat diamond for how much it costs, and no two diamonds are the same.
The price of a two-carat diamond ranges from US$8,000 to US$50,000, depending on the quality and rarity of the diamond. If you choose a two-carat diamond that is perfectly cut and is as close as possible to a colorless and flawless diamond, you can expect to pay a premium for this diamond. If you buy a diamond with some visible blemishes and yellowish colors, it will fall to the lower half of the range.
We found that if you want a high-quality two-carat ROUND (the most popular shape) stone, you should be prepared to spend at least US$10,000 to US$12,000. Most reputable jewelers will not sell two-carat diamonds below that price range because they are not selling unsightly diamonds.
No matter what the budget, how can I still give her a fantastic ring
If she has repeatedly expressed to you that she wants two carats of diamonds in her ring, and it fits your budget, that would be great. However, if you realize that this will pass the planned expenditure, don’t worry. There are other options. There are many ways to achieve the appearance of a 2-carat ring without spending all your savings. We guarantee that she will still like it!
The first and most popular choice we always recommend to our customers is a diamond halo style ring. As we all know, the diamond halo always gives the illusion of a large diamond is appearance. It is achieved by using smaller diamonds around the center stone, so the combination of diamonds makes the appearance look bigger. This appearance is not only fashionable but also very popular for this reason.
You can also choose a three-stone style ring. There is a larger center diamond on the three-stone rings, and two smaller diamonds on each side. The row of diamonds on the ring can create the same “big diamond” appearance without spending a lot of money on a bizarre two-carat diamond. If her wish is to have two carats of diamonds, then you can easily choose three diamonds that add up to the total carat weight.
