Prices of round polished diamonds saw “a mix of small movements in both directions”; 1-carat rounds, especially among better clarities and colors, saw a number of priced drops (around 3%). Smaller rounds, under 0.30 cts, saw no changes. Overall, increases outweighed decreases, rarely more than 3% in either direction.
