DIAMOND CARAT

Balancing Cut and Weight

A diamond or gemstone's "Carat" designation is a measurement of both the size and weight of the stone. One "Carat" is a unit of mass that is equal to 0.2 grams (200 milligrams or 3.086 grains) or 0.007 ounce. A carat can also be divided into "points" with one carat being equal to 100 points, and with each point being 2 milligrams in weight. Therefore, a 1/2 carat diamond would be 50 points, a 3/4 carat diamond is 75 points, and a 2 carat diamond is 200 points.

When a single piece of jewellery has multiple stones, the total mass of all diamonds or gemstones is referred to as "Total Carat Weight" or "T.C.W."

The word "Carat" is derived from the Greek word keration, or "seed of the carob". In ancient times, carob seeds were used to counterbalance scales, and as a benchmark weight due to their predictably uniform weight.

A Diamond's Spread

Think of the "spread" as the apparent size of a diamond.

By sacrificing cut proportions and symmetry, a diamond can have a larger diameter and therefore, a larger apparent "size" for a given carat weight.

The spread is the ratio between diameter and three principle geometric components of the crown, girdle and pavilion. A given diamond will have a 'zero spread penalty' if the correct 'ideal cut' symmetry of a 32.5º crown, 40º pavilion, 58% table and 1% girdle are maintained.
