Carat

Diamond Education Image

The more carats a diamond contains, the more expensive it will be. The weight of a diamond has no bearing on its quality.

Carat is a word that is often used. This refers to the weight of the diamond, not its size. Another misconception is that larger carat weights are generally preferable to smaller weights. Although a large gemstone can serve as a status statement, carat weight has nothing to do with luster.
