Diamond Carat

Carat may be the most familiar diamond quality for most people. Terms such as ‘half carat’ or ‘one carat’ are common standards that are used by popular culture but a lot of people can’t actually visualize the equivalent diametre size. It’s important to note that carat is a weight measurement, not a dimensional measurement. A one carat stone is roughly equivalent to around 6.5mm in diametre but each individual will have slightly different measurements.

There is no carat size that is a ‘standard’ or a ‘minimum’. Every and all diamonds are unique and beautiful. The best diamond is the one that is right for you.
