Diamond Carat

Carat Chart

A carat is 1/5th of a gram and is the unit of weight used for diamonds and gemstones. The link between a diamonds weight and how large it looks can be deceptive. What truly matters is how the weight is distributed. Sometimes diamonds are cut to maximize their carat weight at the expense of their proportions. This makes a diamond look smaller than its weight would indicate. At NADB, we make sure to find you a well-proportioned diamond with a size that matches its weight.
