I don’t have a 2+ Carat Diamond… lol
So I didn’t vote in your Poll.
But I agree with @mypinkshoes: check out one of the on-line Diamond Merchants that list loose Diamonds on their Website (Blue Nile – Pricescope etc) I find their numbers to be pretty accurate (when I punched in the stats for my own 0.80 Feature Diamond after we got it… we bought from a Family Run Independent Jewellers / Goldsmith)

As a Jewellery Lover… and it being the Christmas Season and all…
Out of curiosity I went over to Blue Nile and took a look… on your behalf
As of right now they are listing 12,247 Diamonds (all Shapes) in the above 2 Carat Size * (1.95 to 16.38)
*NOTE – When a Diamond is sold as 2 Carats… it is actually a range… (based on a Decimal) so anything from 1.95 to 2.05 is considered a 2 Carat Stone.
The 12,247 Diamonds that Blue Nile currently are listing range from:
a 2.01 Carat – Emerald – Very Good Cut – J Colour – VS-2 Clarity = $ 8,151
So you CAN FIND a 2 Carat Diamond for well under $ 20 K
BUT Blue Nile also lists… Diamonds into the MILLIONS
a 14.69 Carat – Round – Ideal Cut – D Colour – Flawless = $ 3.11 Million (aprox)
The LARGEST Diamond the 16.38 Carat that they list is just slightly cheaper
16.38 Carat – Round – Ideal Cut – E Colour – VVS-1 Clarity = $ 2.83 Million (approx)
So there you go…
Ho-Ho-Ho… Have you been a GOOD GIRL in 2013, maybe Santa can leave something nice under your Christmas Tree this year…
Then again, if you’ve been a NAUGHTY BUT NICE GIRL in 2013, maybe Santa will leave you an “old chunk of coal” that sparkles even more brightly in your stocking !!
