Know Your Diamond – Carat

Out of hundreds of recognised gemstones 
in the world today, only the diamond is worthy for an engagement ring, the enduring symbol of love and commitment. A diamond is brilliant, returning more white light to the eye. It disperses fire and scintillates with reflected and refracted light. A diamond is rare and it endures, being the hardest natural substance on earth and the purest of all gemstones.

“ When buying a diamond, it helps to know about the 4C’s:
Colour, Clarity, Cut, and Carat. ”

Carat
  • Weight of a diamond is measured in carats
  • One carat = 100 points = 0.2 grams
  • The heavier and larger the diamond, 
usually the more rare it is, for instance a two-carat diamond will be more than twice as valuable as a one-carat stone.
