Carat Weight

Carat refers to the physical weight of a diamond. It is the measurement in which the weight of a diamond is measured and is one of the contributing factors in determining the quality and value of a diamond.

To provide an idea of the measurement in mm to carat weight: one carat is equal to approximately 0.20 grams, which is about the weight of a standard paper clip. Because diamonds naturally form in the earth over millions of years and are highly sought after gemstones, even the slightest increase in carat weight can, in turn, increase the value of a diamond. That said, while the price of a diamond does often increase with carat weight, you may also find that two different diamonds of equal carat weight differ in price. This is due to the other factors involved in determining the quality of diamonds—clarity, cut, and color—which, together with carat weight, form what is commonly referred to as “The 4Cs.”
