Carat Weight

A diamond's weight is measured in carats, with one carat being equivalent to 100 points. You will often see a diamond referred to as a 3/4-carat stone or a 75-point diamond. Larger stones are often more highly valued, but size should not be the only consideration. High brilliance, which varies according to clarity, cut, and color grade, is highly desirable in a diamond.

Keep in mind that while carat weight may seem to be the most important factor in determining the value of a diamond, two diamonds of equal size may have very unequal prices, depending on the stones' other attributes. Diamonds of high quality are found in all sizes.
