Carat (abbreviation: ct) is a term that refers to the weight of a diamond. The size of a diamond is proportional to its carat weight. Diamond carat is often misunderstood and refers to a diamond's weight, and not its size. Since larger rough gems of high quality are found less frequently than smaller rough gems of high quality, a single two carat diamond will be more expensive than two one-carat diamonds of the same quality.
TIP: “A high-carat diamond with a poor cut grade may look smaller, often cut deeper, than a diamond with smaller carat weight and a better cut.”
Which size is right for me then ?
This question has no direct answer. It is a personal choice that depends on individual preference and budget. When looking to buy a Diamond, what is most visible is the size of the surface area on the top of the diamond. Although carat weight influences cost quite a bit, it is advisable to focus on diamond cut and diameter.
