• Carat Weight

    While gold and platinum are weighed in grams, diamonds are weighed in carats.  One carat equals 200 milligrams in weight.  Contrary to popular belief, carat weight does not refer to the actual diameter of the stone.  Two diamonds of the same carat weight could look like two very different size stones if one is a much deeper cut than the other.  This is why it is important to consider all aspects of the diamond when selecting a stone.
