IDEX Price Report for 1 August: Fancies Down, Rounds are a Mixed BagAugust 01, 20
Prices for round polished diamond were largely static for the "bread and butter goods" - sizes between 0.70-1.99 cts - in July. Fancies under four carats sustained a number of losses. There wasn't a single movement among one-carat rounds (1.00-1.24 cts) and slightly larger and smaller stones - 0.90-0.99 cts and 1.25-1.49 cts - barely moved. But there were discernible trends among some other sizes.
