    Diamond carat weight is specifically the measurement of how much a diamond weighs. A metric “carat” is defined as 200 milligrams. Each carat can be subdivided into 100 ‘points, which allows precise measurements to the hundredth decimal place. Any diamond less than one carat the weight is described by its point alone. For example, a diamond that weighs 0.50 carats is referred by jewelers as a “fifty pointer”. If a diamond weighs more than a carat jewelers describe the weight in carats and decimals. A 1.05 stone would be described as “one point oh five carats”.

    All else being equal, diamond price increases with diamond carat weight, because larger diamonds are more rare and more desirable. On the other hand, two diamond with the same carat weight can have a different value depending on three other factors of the diamond 4Cs: Clarity, Color, and Cut. That is why we always have to keep in mind the value of a diamond is based in all 4Cs.
