Diamonds | The 4 C's of Diamonds - Carat
The weights of diamonds and gemstones are measured in carats. 1 carat is equal to 200 milligrams. When measuring diamonds, a round brilliant diamond that's 1 carat in weight should measure approximately 6.5 mm in diameter. Typically, the more a diamond weighs, the higher its value. Large diamonds can be very rare, so the value typically increases exponentially after they get above 1 carat in weight. For example, a good quality 1.5 carat diamond could be worth twice as much as a 1 carat diamond, since they are harder to find on the market. Most of the rings that Adamas Goldsmiths has in stock are designed to hold a 1 carat diamond, but they can be altered to fit any size diamond that you like. Adamas Goldsmiths also has access to any size of diamond for our customers. For more information on diamond weight, call us at 780-434-9479.
