The effects of coronavirus on the current economic state and what it means for diamond prices
The effect of the current economic situation as a result of the coronavirus crisis has been felt in almost every industry all over the world, and this is likely to be the case for some considerable time. The diamond market, which was already seeing something of a downturn, saw a significant change from the moment that China went into lockdown in late January.
Whilst the effects of the pandemic have not made life easy for those businesses trading in diamonds and selling diamond jewellery , they have meant that where the general public are concerned, diamond prices are proving to be more appealing. There has never been a better time to buy with diamond jewellery offering much better value for your budget.

Has your budget changed?
One thing that you may want to consider of course is your budget, especially if you are buying an engagement ring .
