There’s no rule that states the exact amount of a diamond bracelet. However, the price of a diamond bracelet varies based on several factors which are; the type of metal, the number of diamonds, and the size of diamonds. Generally, the price of a diamond bracelet costs between £1,000 to £100,000. You’d want to focus on the factors that determine the price of a diamond bracelet to ensure you don’t overspend or underspend.
1. The Type of Metal: There’s no best metal when it comes to diamond bracelets as each metal offers its own specific feel and look to suit your taste. However, the most popular metals used for diamond bracelets are rose gold, yellow gold, white gold, and platinum. The rarer the metal, the higher the price. As bracelets are to be worn almost daily, the one factor you’d want to consider when choosing metal is its durability. For example, platinum bracelets are somewhat more expensive than white gold bracelets as a platinum bracelet can cost around £8,500, while the same bracelet in white gold can cost around £7,500 whereas, all golds; rose, yellow, and white, cost about the same price. When trying to work within your budget, if you want platinum but can’t afford the price, opt for white gold as it looks almost the same but is much cheaper. Same way if you want 14K yellow gold but can’t afford it, opt for a lower carat gold which will be much cheaper and even looks identical.
2. The Diamonds: The price of a diamond bracelet is determined by the quality and size of the individual diamonds used. A flawless diamond bracelet could cost over £100,000 while a lower diamond bracelet could cost as low as £1,000. There are, however, several factors to consider when choosing a well-cut diamond bracelet.
a. Cut: A well-cut diamond, although, will make your bracelet appear brighter from every angle, it’ll be more expensive; while cheap diamonds will have a poor light reflection.
b. Clarity: A diamond with higher clarity will definitely cost more as flawless diamonds are the most expensive because they have no inclusions or surface blemishes. While diamonds with lower clarity cost less because they have inclusions or surface blemishes. The clarity of diamond bracelets is rated in terms of Best Quality (VS1-VS2) and Best Value (SI1-SI2).
c. Color: Diamonds are rated in terms of colors, and the closer it is to being colorless, the more expensive it is. Diamonds' color quality is assessed using a 23 color grading scale ranging from D to Z, with the most common color ratings being F-G (best quality) and H-I (best value).
d. Carat Weight: The higher the carat size, the more expensive it is. In some cases, despite having a big carat-sized diamond, if a diamond has a lower cut, clarity, and color value it can cost less than a smaller carat-sized diamond with a higher cut, clarity, and color value.
