Further, according to RAPI 0.30ct and 0.50ct diamonds rose by 4.7% and 4.5% respectively, On the other hand, 3ct diamonds record the 0.5% fall in prices. In spite of this, RAPI for 1ct diamonds faces a drop of 4.4% from a year ago as producers tried to cut excess inventory in 2015. Moreover, RAPI for 3ct diamonds shows a decrease of 13.6% from a twelvemonth ago, while 0.50ct and 0.30ct diamonds face a decline of 8.6% and 7.7% respectively.
