According to the piece, “manufacturers have been switching to LGDs as the preferred replacement for natural smalls, which have been in desperately short supply, especially since sanctions were imposed on Russia. This largely accounts for these price drops.”

Diamonds weighing between 0.90 carats and 1.50 carats had mixed results, “although the general trend is downwards.” The Round diamond category suffered losses among smaller diamonds, while larger goods enjoyed increases, and Rounds weighing between 0.70 carats and 2.99 carats had “an even mix overall of rises and falls”. The Fancy diamond category had “plenty of activity in both directions.”
