Overall diamond prices remain flat.
Despite increased trading activity in some markets, May arrived on the heels of another week of unwavering loose polished diamond prices, according to Edahn Golan at IDEX Online. "In the past month, overall diamond prices increased by 0.04 percent, flat by all accounts," he said. Notably, prices of one-carat goods eased a bit in the last seven days with an overall decline of about a tenth of a percent. This was most noticeable in the I1-2 items in the J-M colors.
