Q: Retail Price vs Rapnet Price vs Wholesale Price: What’s the difference?

A: Retail Price is the price at which diamonds are sold in a regular jewelry store. Rapnet Price is the price you expect when selling to a diamond dealer. Rapnet Prices may vary +/- 10%. Wholesale Price is the price at which diamonds are sold between diamond dealers. The Wholesale Price should be the lowest price out of the three. 

Q: What are the 4Cs?

The 4Cs stand for Cut, Color, Clarity, and Carat. When buying or selling diamonds, the 4Cs are probably the most important things you should remember about diamonds. 

A diamond’s cut is considered to have the greatest influence in a diamond’s overall brilliance and beauty since the cut combines two important things: the diamond cutter’s caliber in the fashioning of a diamond’s shape and the diamond cutter’s overall knowledge of how the cut affects a diamond’s sparkle.

Unknown to many, a diamond’s color comes in many different hues. However, the best ones are still colorless diamonds. According to the Gemological Institute of America (GIA), the range of measuring a diamond’s color starts from D, which means the diamond is colorless, to Z, which means the diamond is yellowish. 

Clarity, as defined by the American Gem Society (AGS), is the presence of internal characteristics called inclusions or the absence of external characteristics called blemishes. In simpler terms, having fewer inclusions and or blemishes means a diamond would be more expensive.

Of the 4Cs, Carat is probably the easiest factor to determine as it expresses the weight of a diamond. The heavier the diamond’s carat is, the more precious the stone would be.

Q: Does the 4Cs affect a diamond’s value?

A: Yes! However, there can be an unbelievable amount of combinations (of the 4Cs) that affect a diamond’s brilliance.

Q: AGS vs GIA: What’s the difference?

A: AGS and GIA are both certifying bodies that will provide you with the necessary documentation for your diamond. The big difference? The AGS and the GIA both use their own grading scales but what really sets them apart is that they have their own specialty. The AGS is notably known for developing a grading scale that puts focus on grading a stone’s cut while the GIA is known for a more holistic approach when it comes to grading a stone.
