DIAMOND CARAT SIZE
Diamonds are primarily measured in carats. The value of a carat has been standardised as 0.2 grams or 200 milligrams since 1907. The word "carat" originates from the weight of the Mediterranean carob beans, which were used to weigh precious stones in the ancient times.
The carat measurement of a diamond is actually a measurement of the diamond weight rather than its size or diameter. It is important to remember that depending upon the shape, a diamond may appear to have a larger top surface area (called the table) than others even though it has the same carat weight simply because it is cut different.
The larger the diamond, the rarer and more expensive per carat it will be. For example, a 1 carat diamond costs more than 2 diamonds of 0.5 carat.
