The ADTEC Rough Diamond Guideline Price List can do this for you! Instead of you spending a lot of your time calculating prices and then rechecking your calculations for possible errors, you can spend most of the time making sure you have your grading correct and then performing a quick simple calculation to arrive at a price.
What we've done is work out what polished weight should be recovered from most rough diamonds and calculated the value of this polish. We then take off a trade discount, polishing costs, and a profit margin, giving you a simple, easy-to-use value for arriving at a reasonable price for the rough diamond.
Diamantaires have been using the Rough Diamond Guideline Price List since 1996 and have found it to be a simple, accurate and convenient means of making sure they are "in the price".
New-comers to the diamond trade have found the list to be an invaluable silent partner when they are on their own, and old hands have found it to be a good guide to negotiating deals.
