The weight or overall size of a diamond is measured in carats. In fact, all
gemstones are measured in this fashion. Of course, the larger the diamond, the
more you can expect to pay for it, however the price does not increase on an
even scale. A 2 carat diamond will not be twice the cost of a 1 carat diamond,
despite being twice the size. The larger the diamond, the rarer it becomes and
as such the price increases exponentially.
The chart below is a basic representation of the
average sizes of diamonds for a particular carat weight. The chart is by no
means exact and should only be used as a rough guideline and comparison.
When choosing a diamond for yourself or someone
else, keep in mind that the same size diamond can look bigger depending on the
type of setting it is mounted in. Also, a 1 carat stone will look bigger on
a person with a size 5 finger, than it will on a person with a size 8 finger.
