Diamond Carat

Carat (often seen abbreviated as ct) refers to the weight of one diamond. Carat should not to be confused with karat which refers to the pureness of gold and gold alloys.

Diamond Carat Facts

  • Carats are a measurement of diamond weight not diamond size.

  • Carats are the diamond characteristic most used to set their price.
  • As the size and carat weight of a diamond increases, usually so does its price (due to the stones' rarity).
  • Half-carat diamonds are very popular as buyers can get a reasonable sized stone within a reasonable budget.
  • The price of a diamond does not increase in proportion to its weight. One carat diamonds are in high demand and in short supply, so the price increase for these larger diamonds is not relative to their size.
  • A well-cut diamond can appear bigger than a diamond with more carats or points.

Carat Weigh
Carat weights are also expressed as points with a one carat diamond equalling 100 points.

  • one ct = 100 points
  • three-quarter ct = 75 points
  • half ct = 50 points
  • quarter ct = 25 points

One-hundredth of a carat is also referered to as a point.
