What can you afford?
The calculator will help determine an approximate diamond’s size, given the budget. The actual price depends on the availability and variety of stones currently on the market. This calculation is for natural diamonds. The lab-grown diamonds are so cheap that you can afford any stone you desire.
There are two types of diamonds – round and fancy-shaped, such as ovals, cushions, emerald cuts, etc. A round diamond is significantly more expensive than the same carat/color/clarity fancy-shaped diamond.
Please keep in mind that our calculator does not account for the cost of the mounting. The majority of popular engagement ring styles cost between $2,000 and $5,000
