For the first time since January, diamond prices moved lower confirming our earlier prediction of a lull. Although only affecting diamonds below a half carat, this decrease should be taken as a good indication that this is the right time to buy online.
If you are planning a Christmas proposal and have the will power to hold on to a diamond ring until then, making a purchase now should save you a significant amount of money. The holiday season always brings increased demand and with that demand comes higher prices.
So go ahead and compare diamond prices from multiple jewelers and save yourself some cash now.

A small move up this week, just a 3% gain in our pricing index only affecting diamonds 1 carat and above, graded D-F color and IF-VVS2 clarity. Otherwise another quiet week which should continue until the fall when prices will start to spike as we approach the holiday season.
