To give you a sense of how much these gemstones cost, we have created a 5 star system. All gemstones are ranked according to price, 1 being the lowest and 5 being the highest. Here is a breakdown, more or less of what the stars mean in terms of dollars.
A particular type of gemstone will vary greatly according to its level of quality, so we have included the lowest and highest ends of the spectrum among faceted 1 carat gemstones.
You will see the greatest difference on the high end. Note: some gemstones are never faceted. In those cases, the prices are for "gem quality" stones.
