Diamond Carat Weight

We know that diamonds are measured in Carat Weight. 200 milligrams is one carat weighs . If a diamond is referred to as four grains, this also means that it is a one carat diamond. A carob is a bean that grows on a tree in the Mediterranean. The word Carat comes from the word carob. In times past, if a diamond weighed the same as a carob bean, it was one carob, or one carat. That's a diamond Carat Weight.

However, in the far east, where Carob trees do not grow, rice was used to measure the weight of a diamond. If a diamond weighed as much as four grains of rice, it was four grains – or one carat as we know it to be now. The majority of diamond purchases are for diamonds that are 1/3 of a carat.

For attention when we will to buy a diamond. There are many interesting thing to get the attention. Beware when shopping for diamonds that are already set or mounted. If more than one diamond is used in the piece, the tag on the jewelry will give the Carat Total Weight or CTW – it does not tell you the carat weight of each stone in the piece. To truly understand what we are buying, we need to ask the jeweler stores for the total carat weight of the largest diamond in the piece.

What described above is one of many factors to get attention before we decided to buy a diamond.
