Carat -- you’ve probably heard this word before, but what does it mean? Carat accounts for the weight of your diamond, making it a crucial factor to consider when shopping for your diamond. But how exactly can you choose the correct diamond carat for you?.
Diamond carat: The weight of a diamond
One of the GIA’s 4C’s, a diamond’s carat weight, gives an idea of the volume of the stone, or simply put, its size. However, the relationship between a diamond’s carat weight and size depends on a number of other factors, including cut and shape. It’s important to remember: a larger carat weight does not necessarily mean bigger diamond.
