Guide to Diamond Carat

The diamond carat is basically its weight in a special measurement unit specific for diamonds that is called a CARAT.

A carat is a unit of mass and is equivalent to 200mg.

The diamond carat weight usually implies its size but not necessarily as the cut makes a big difference to the faceplate of the diamond and therefore its appearance.
