Besides price, the difference between these two stones is their chemical composition. Diamond is made of " carbon - C" , with trace metals such as iron and nickel. Graphite is another stone which is made of "carbon - C". The only difference is its atomic structure. It is interesting that at a certain temperature and pressure of a graphite can be converted to diamond, and diamond to graphite . Sapphire is made of aluminum oxide, with traces of chromium, iron , titanium, etc. which are responsible for their colors.
