The main difficulty in pricing a diamond and setting from Tiffany is
that they price each diamond individually based on its 4 C?s, Cut,
Clarity, Color and Carat. I contacted Tiffany & Co. and spoke to a
purchasing representative named Leeza Roufeh at their Manhasset
location. She can be reached at 516-869-0800 x 345 for any information
about the specific ring we discussed.
First problem I ran into was Tiffany & Co. does not offer a princess
cut stone, they instead offer a cut called Lucida. I have included an
image of a Lucida cut stone from Tiffany below. It is a very similar
cut to the princess cut, and the changes are made to increase
I think the best way to price a diamond for you from Tiffany which
closely meets our agreed range of pricing would be to price a specific
ring which closely meets your needs. Tiffany will not give a price for
a diamond that they do not have in stock.
I gave her your exact diamond description, and she was able based on
that to give me a price for a ring that closely matches this request.
The diamond and setting she came up with was:
Carat - 1.52
Color - H
Clarity - VVS2
Cut - Good
Setting - Tiffany Platinum
Price - $20,000
I further inquired about the pricing difference between VVS2 and VS2,
and she explained that based on what inclusions in the ring they could
find, the price would adjust up or down. VVS2 stands for very very
small inclusion, where VS2 stands for very small inclusion.
?VVS1,VVS2-Very Very Slightly Imperfect
These stones have very small inclusions which are very difficult to
see under a loupe with a 10 power magnification.?
?VS1,VS2-Very Slightly Imperfect
These stones have small inclusions which are slightly difficult to
difficult to see under a loupe with a 10 power magnification?

The difficulty in giving a price estimate on a diamond based on these
circumstances is that a diamond of the same description with a Very
Good cut rating increases its value. While a diamond with a Good cut
rating and a VVS2 clarity rating would also increase its price. I hope
this will give you an idea of the pricing on the ring. Leeza also
informed me that this stone and setting are available right now. It is
currently located in Atlanta, but could be delivered to whatever
Tiffany location you desired. Leeza will be away next week, but is
more then happy to help you with the purchase of this ring, feel free
to contact her at 516-869-0800 x 345. If you need to find an
alternative location for shopping with Tiffany, you can use their
online store locator.
