The manner in which a diamond may be cut also adds to the price of a diamond. Its cut also defines the amount of light that will reflect and refract from the piece. If the cut is too shallow or too deep, it allows a lot of light to escape from the other areas. A well-cut diamond will add to the fiery sparkle of a diamond. To maximize this effect, the diamond cutter has to have accurate geometric calculations.
Diamonds owing to their greater brilliance, clarity, and shine, are more in demand, and are thus more pricier in comparison to sapphires of the same weight. Typically, a finely-cut diamond of the same weight can be about 30 times costlier than a sapphire. But then again, it all depends on the quality of the particular stone in question. Some rare white sapphires are more valued, and thus, priced a lot higher than the others are.
Also, in some cases, the shape of a Kimberlite deposit makes it inevitable that underground mining be employed as the extraction method. When deposits are found to be horizontally spread, deeper below the ground, underground mining is the only option. De Beers Canada's Snap Lake mine, DBCM's Venetia Mine in South Africa, and Debswana's Jwaneng Mine in Botswana are some examples.
The Kimberley Process (KP) defines 'conflict diamonds' as "rough diamonds used by rebel movements to finance wars against legitimate governments." For the conscientious buyer, it is of great significance that only conflict-free diamonds are considered for purchase.
