Diamond Carat

Diamond carat refers to the diamond’s weight, it is often presumed that carat is a diamonds size, but it is not, it is actually a measure of the diamond weight. A metric carat is defined as 200 milligrams. Each carat is sub-divided into ‘100 points’. A 0.50ct diamond is the same as a ‘50 pointer’ or a half carat diamond.

It is often presumed that a 0.50ct diamond costs half of the price of a 1.00ct diamond, but this is not the case at all. Since larger natural diamonds are found less frequently, a 1.00ct diamond will cost much more than twice the price of a 0.50ct diamond, assuming that the other characteristics are the same or remarkably similar. To make things simpler online we offer diamonds in 0.33ct, 0.50ct, 0.75ct or 1.00ct.
