Follow the steps below to find out how much your diamond weights in carats:
Carat weight is a unit of measurement used to calculate the weight of a gemstone. Derived from “carob seeds”, these seeds were used in ancient times to weigh precious stones due to their uniformity in weight. One carat is equal to approximately 0.20g.
Often confused with the size of a stone, carat weight does in fact refer to its weight. While there is a strong correlation between carat weight and size, two diamonds of identical carat weight can look different in size if they are different cuts. Emerald diamonds, for example, typically look larger than round diamonds of the same carat weight due to their large surface area.
Carat weight plays a pivotal role in the value of a diamond. The larger the diamond, the more valuable it is. The reason being is that larger diamonds are rarer and therefore more sought after than smaller diamonds. At WP Diamonds, we specialize in purchasing stones of 0.5ct and larger.
