DIAMOND CARAT

The size of a diamond can dramatically affect the value of the stone and the diamond jewellery in which it's used. Generally the larger the stone the greater value, however other important factors also affect value too. The weight of a diamond is measured in ‘carats’ (sometimes referred to as ‘ct’). It is an ancient measuring unit derived from the seeds of the carob tree. One carat is divided into 100points. Diamonds of less than one carat in weight are known as ‘pointers’.

A diamond is usually priced on a per carat basis, according to its size and quality.
