The price range of diamond fluctuates based on the 4C’s of diamonds i.e; the cut, color, clarity and carat of the diamonds. The color range of diamonds start from D, E, F till Z.

In case of clarity, it is measured as FL, IF, VVS1, VVS2, VS1, VS2, SI1, SI2, I1, I2 and I3. FL indicating flawless diamonds are free of any inclusions or blemishes, so can be regarded as the supreme quality diamonds and also pretty expensive quality diamonds.
