Jewelry Guide: Diamond Carat Weight & mm. Size Chart

 

Carats are the traditional measuring unit of a diamond's weight

Carats are the traditional measuring unit of a diamond's weight, one carat equaling 200 milligrams, in other words one gram equaling five carats. A carat is divided into 100 'points,' like one dollar divided into 100 cents, so the same diamond can be represented as weighing a carat and a half, 150 points or 1.50 carats.

Two terms, carat and karat are often confused. Karat refers to the fineness of gold alloys (pure gold is 24 karat; 14 karat or 14Kt. is 14 parts gold and 10 parts other metals) and Carat refers to gem weights, 1.05 Carat or 1.05 Ct. 

Carat Weight

Used in weighing precious and semi-precious stones. (the term “Karat” refers to the quality of purity in gold.)
1 carat = 31/16 grains Troy
1 carat = .007 ounce Acoir
1 carat = 1/5 gram

The carat is further divided into points for simple measurement:
1 carat = 100 points
½ carat = 50 points
¼ carat = 25 points
1/8 carat = 12 ½ points
