Report Overview

The global diamond jewelry market size was valued at USD 340.6 billion in 2022 and is projected to register a CAGR of 4.6% from 2023 to 2030. The market is primarily driven by the growth of the beauty and fashion industry which has resulted in the rise of fashion sense among the global population. The increasing consumer disposable income and higher spending capacity on precious jewelry to reflect status are likely to drive the demand. Nowadays, millennials prefer self-expression, which has been driving the demand for new designs and trend styles, and the growing popularity of bridal makeup has spurred the demand for diamond jewelry globally. The millennials are more inclined to branded products and fashionable designs that are convergent with their personal style and opt for jewelry that is versatile and can be worn during any occasion, whether formal or informal. Therefore, these evolving trends including colored diamonds, mismatched stones, and asymmetric earrings are encouraging manufacturers to design jewelry to address the emerging trends in the diamond market.

Moreover, the increasing spending power of the female population is fueling the sales of diamond jewelry across the globe. The preference for jewelry varies in different countries and regions. Traditional occasions, ceremonies, and rituals play a pivotal role when it comes to the demand for jewelry. For instance, diamond jewelry is mostly preferred for weddings and engagements in western countries. Customers prefer purchasing jewelry from both local and international brands as these brands offer value-added products and unique designs. Also, the growth of the e-commerce sector is playing a pivotal role in creating new trends in the jewelry market. 

Cut Insights

The round brilliant cut diamonds have gained widespread acceptance due to their symmetry, structure, and light-dancing reflections. Such features have made these diamonds a perfect choice for engagement rings among consumers. Also, these diamonds represent a major proportion of the diamond shapes sold globally and are the costliest of all diamonds sold in the market.

Worldwide jewelry manufacturers such as Tiffany & Co., Chow Tai Fook Jewellery Group Limited, and others have been the drivers of the sales of round-cut diamonds with trendsetting looks and designs to captivate customers. In May 2021, Tiffany & Co. unveiled 'Charles Tiffany Setting', a men's engagement ring with a bold solitaire diamond. The engagement rings are available in round cut diamonds and emerald cut diamonds.

Princess-cut diamonds have gained significant popularity because of their modern appearance and trendsetting design. In addition, the diamond has 58 facets that fit well with a halo engagement ring setting. These diamonds are more economical than other shapes and hardly 20% of these diamonds are utilized globally. The princess-cut diamonds are the second most popular diamond chosen for engagement rings across America.

Clarity Insights

The Very Slightly Included (VS2) category holds the dominant share of the segment and is expected to grow at the fastest CAGR of 4.9% from 2023 to 2030. The diamonds are easily noticeable at 10x magnification. The inclusion will be located in a difficult-to-spot location and due to its large blemishes, it can be easily viewed under magnification. These diamonds are the most popular choice for engagement rings and are viewed as the most popular diamond clarity among different clarities of diamonds. 

Also, SI1, Slightly Included 1st Degree represents the top 10% of all the world's diamonds for engagement rings and has the highest value in terms of its popularity and resale value. Also, the inclusions of 1st Degree are observed under 10x magnification easily and may have inclusions that can be viewed through a human eye.

Color Insights

The Near-colorless diamonds hold the dominant share of 56.59% in 2022 and is expected to lead the overall segmental share during the forecast timeline 2023-2030. Near-colorless diamonds have a color grade ranging from G to J. The color of these diamonds may be noticeable when compared to a colorless diamond, but they will usually appear colorless when viewed on their own.

Diamonds in this grade offer the best value because they are less expensive than colorless diamonds but lack any tint that is visible to the naked eye. These diamonds are colorless when mounted in jewelry. Also, these diamond color ranges are gaining huge demand among diamond traders from auctions, exhibitions, and private sales events globally. For instance, in May 2022, a 228.31-carat, near colorless (G-color), pear-shaped diamond was sold for around USD 22 million at Christie’s Geneva in Switzerland.

Carat Insights

A 1-carat diamond weighs around 200 milligrams and it is easily affordable due to its price. The 1-carat diamond falls on the low-category budget for the ones who try to minimize their search requirements based on low and affordable pricing options. In addition, 1-carat diamonds are increasingly accepted as a jewelry option.

The 0.50 carat diamonds is expected to be the fastest-growing segment with a 4.8% CAGR from 2023 to 2030. The 0.50 CT or half-carat diamonds are widely accepted as a popular choice for wedding rings because of their price which is lower compared to their above weights. Also, these diamonds look appealing with solitaire and halo settings and have gained widespread acceptance.

Also, the diamond fits well with a white metal band which can appear like a mirror to reflect the diamond's size. These diamonds are well suited to yellow and rose gold settings and make the diamond appear bigger than its actual size.
