Beyond the Four C's
When pricing two-carat diamonds, though, buyers also need to look beyond the 4Cs. Colors and shapes include fancy varieties, too.
Fancy shaped diamonds include marquise, heart, pear, and ovals. These unique shapes may increase or decrease the value and price of the stone. Heart, for example, isn’t an in-demand shape, and this could mean a deal for a two-carat diamond. Shapes like Asscher and cushion may be priced higher, though, as these shapes have a vintage appearance and are very much in vogue for engagement rings. Trendier shapes bump up the prices.
