8 Factors That Affect the Cost of Holloway Diamonds

In the realm of diamond pricing, a myriad of technical factors to shape the cost of each gem. At Holloway Diamonds, we will help you demystify the complexities of diamond selection, offering insights into the technical nuances that underpin ours and other firms pricing structures. Let’s delve into the world of diamond cut quality, transparency, and clarity, shedding light on these technical factors. Factors that distinguish Holloway Diamonds as a paragon of excellence and value.

  • Cut Quality: The Cornerstone of Brilliance

At the core of Holloway Diamonds’ allure is cut quality, meticulously calibrated to optimize brilliance, fire, and scintillation. Leveraging advanced tools and techniques used by our inhouse gemmologists and our overseas agents have been trained to use a trifecta of precision instruments—Holloway Cut Adviser (HCA) for round diamonds, Ideal-Scope for cut precision and symmetry evaluation, and Angular Spectrum Evaluation Tool (ASET) for fancy shaped stones. Using these tools developed and patented by our founder, we reject 95 in every 100 diamonds, including those with the GIA’s top cut quality of Excellent, ensuring each stone exudes a mesmerizing radiance that captivates the senses. Going these extra miles requires patience and dedication. 

  • No doubts: GIA Certification

Every diamond over 0.5 carat from Holloway Diamonds comes with a Gemmological Institute of America (GIA) certification that guarantees the diamond is natural.

  • Diamond Transparency: Revealing the Inner Beauty

Transparency in diamonds is a little known and largely concealed factor in gem brilliance. By meticulously scrutinizing each diamond’s transparency using proprietary tools and techniques, we ensure that only the most crystal clear sparkling specimens adorn our collections. We guarantee a level of transparency that accentuates the inherent beauty of each diamond, a corner stone of 50 years fostering a sense of trust and confidence among our discerning clientele.

  • Eye Clean Clarity: A Testament to Perfection

In our relentless pursuit of perfection, we curate a selection of eye-clean diamonds, free from visible inclusions even under close scrutiny. Leveraging cutting-edge expertise, we employ methodologies to identify and assess the size of inclusions inherent in all diamonds, ensuring optimal clarity and brilliance. By offering diamonds with impeccable eye-clean clarity indistinguishable from Flawless diamonds at a fraction of the cost.

  • Highest Colour: Radiating Elegance and Sophistication

Adhering to the strictest standards of excellence, Holloway Diamonds offers diamonds of the highest colour grades ensuring no one will ever suggest a Holloway diamond has a tinge of yellow or brown. Round diamonds below two carat are all D to H, and +2ct are G or better. Most fancy shapes of diamond are only sold in D to F since many cuts other than round appear to be of a lower colour than their GIA grade.

Unlocking Affordability: The Technical Advantages of Holloway Diamonds

Despite our unwavering commitment to quality, Holloway Diamonds remains steadfast in our mission to make luxury accessible to all. Through strategic considerations and technical innovations, we ensure that our diamonds are not only of exceptional quality but also attainable to a wide range of discerning clientele.

  • Blue Fluorescent Diamonds: A Paradigm of Value and Charm

Embracing the unique allure of blue fluorescent diamonds with benefits. This distinctive range of diamonds have been screened to reject any diamond with reduced brilliance and transparency. These diamonds present a cost-effective alternative, offering a lower price point without compromising on quality or beauty. Moreover, the presence of blue fluorescence enhances the perceived colour grade, imbuing the diamond with a captivating brilliance that belies its affordability.

  • Eye-Clean SI1 and SI2 Diamonds: Precision Redefined

We meticulously assess the clarity of each diamond, selecting stones with SI1 and SI2 clarity grades that remain impeccably eye-clean and crystal clear. By accurately gauging the size, position and visibility of inclusions, we empower our clients to make informed decisions, offering substantial savings without compromising on quality or elegance.

  • Oversizes: Maximizing Value, Minimizing Cost

For those seeking exceptional value and maximising diamond size, our selection of oversize diamonds offers a cost saving opportunity. Positioned close to the next carat weight threshold, these diamonds provide a significant price advantage compared to their larger counterparts. For example, a 1.20ct or a 1.30ct can cost 10% or 20% more per carat than a 1.00ct diamond, but much less per carat than a 1.50ct stone.

By harnessing the allure of oversizes, clients can indulge in the luxury of a larger stone at a fraction of the cost, epitomizing the Holloway commitment to value and excellence.

“The bitterness of poor quality remains long after the sweetness of low price is forgotten.” – Benjamin Franklin 

In essence, the cost of Holloway diamonds transcends mere monetary value, encompassing a legacy of technical expertise, innovation, and uncompromising dedication to excellence. With each gemstone meticulously curated to embody the epitome of beauty and sophistication, Holloway Diamonds invites discerning connoisseurs to embark on a journey of timeless elegance and distinction.
