The carat weight of a loose diamond refers to the weight of the stone when it is measured on a diamond scale. The unit of measurement is called “carat” as opposed to gram. A “carat” is equal to 200 milligrams or 0.2 grams and is divided into 100 points. For example, 1.50ct is equal to 1 carat and 50 points or 150 points.
It is important to note that two stones may be the same carat weight but have a different value. Keep in mind that the larger the stone the rarer the diamond the greater the value.
Decide on your budget, the individual style, preference of the person and on the occasion. For example a 1 carat diamond will look proportionally large on a small finger. If you need advice, please contact our staff.
