The 4 C's of Diamonds       1 · 2 · 3 · 4
  supplies · jewelry · the 4 C's · carat


   A carat is the gemologist's standard measure of a diamond's weight. A carat is a term for weight, not size.

Note: Use this chart as a relative guide only.
(Actual sizes will vary with different monitor settings.)

   It is important to note that size alone is almost meaningless unless you consider cut, clarity and color. A large stone holds little value if it lacks brilliance, purity and high-grade color. However, size does increase the value of a good quality diamond for the simple reason that large stones are rarer than small ones.

   Once you've determined what cut, color, and clarity grade you're looking for in a diamond, it's easy to decide what carat weight of diamond you can fit within your budget.

   This chart illustrates the graduation of diamond sizes. Note that a 2-carat diamond does not appear to be twice the size of a 1-carat diamond when viewed from above.

   Remember that since large pieces of diamond rough are discovered less frequently than small ones, large diamonds are generally more valuable. A two-carat diamond of a given quality is always worth more than two 1-carat diamonds of the same quality.

So that's it, now you are ready to go out and pick a diamond that you're sweetie is sure to love! : Everything Dating from Pick-up to Break-up
