Are pear diamonds cheaper than round?
Furthermore, are pear shaped diamonds cheaper than round?
Heart-Shape Heart-shaped diamonds are essentially pears with a crevice on the rounded side. Therefore, the prices are rather similar. One might think that this shape would cost more due to its unique shape, but it can cost almost $2,000 less than a round diamond.
Then, which is the most expensive cut of diamond?
The most expensive diamond cut is the round brilliant And it's not just because it's the most in-demand: The round brilliant has the most facets of any shape, which require more precision work, and cutters have to discard more of the rough diamond, so you essentially pay for a larger stone than you end up with.
Thanks to their unique shape, pear shaped diamonds use more of the rough diamond than the round brilliant cut, making them a good value option. Like the diamond from James Allen, it looks outstanding and costs significantly less than a round cut diamond of equal carat weight.
