The attractiveness of a shiny 2-carat diamond is undebatable – love, promise, and posh. The Lab-grown diamonds world shows an ethical and environmentally conscious alternative, providing the same sparkle without being expensive. But the question is: How much is a 2-carat lab-grown diamond?

The Value of 4 Cs

1. Cut

The cut of a diamond has an essential part in its brilliance. For EX3 Diamonds, the objective is to provide spectacular cuts such as stunning rounds and peerless emeralds for optimum brilliance.

2. Color

Diamonds are classified according to scale of color from D-Z, whereas those with the slightest hues can be eye-catching and more economical. The color preference is relative, which implies that you can select what touches your heart.

3. Clarity

Small defects or flaws reduce the brilliance of a diamond. Varying clarity options, ranging from FL to very slightly included (VS1 or VS2), offer impressive choices in terms of differentiation according to their value.

4. Carat Weight

While a poorly cut diamond may be larger than 2 carats, one that has been well-cut can provide more sparkle. With the increase in carat weight, prices also rise.

The Lab-Grown Advantage

Lab-grown diamonds mimic the natural formation process and have all the characteristics of mined stones. These synthetic diamonds are ten to twenty-five percent less than their natural counterparts.

Pricing Insights

The cost of a 2-carat lab-grown diamond can be anything from $2,000 to over $10,000 (again depending on cut color clarity and the carats). For instance, a 2-carat F-color VS1 clarity round brilliant diamond cut excellently is more valued than a G-color SI1 emerald with a good cut.
