A diamond's weight is measured in 'carats'. Each carat is divided into 100 points and there are 5.00 carats to 1.00 gram, so 1.00 carat is equal to 200mg. When looking at a pair of earrings, the total carat weight is the weight of both diamonds combined.


The minimum total carat weight we carry is 0.50 carats and we currently carry a maximum total carat weight of 1.00 carats in stock. However, a much larger range of weights are available through our made to order bespoke offerings and we can easily work to a carat weight of your choice.


Simply drag the gold sliders on the interactive scale to give an indication in the difference carat weight can make to the diameter of a diamond and compare two diamonds side by side. The scale shows individual carat weights, so if you are looking at a pair of diamond earrings with a total carat weight of 1.00 carat, then you will need to select 0.50 carats on each of the sliders.



GIA's video on carat weight provides a good introduction into the relationship between carat weight and value and shows how a diamond is weighed.
