Hearts & Arrows Ideal Cut Diamonds

Carat is a weight measurement used exclusively for diamonds and gemstones. Don't confuse this with Carat or Karat used for gold purity. Prices go up exponentially with carat weight. 100 points = 1 carat. Half a carat = 0.50ct or 50 points, and so on.

Hearts & Arrows

Different shaped diamonds will appear smaller or larger next to each other as some shapes by their nature, hold more weight in their depth. For example, a 1.00ct Cushion Cut Diamond (with a square ratio) averages around 5.4mm - 6.2mm long. In contrast, a 1.00ct Marquise Cut Diamond has an approximate length of between 8.97mm - 12.2mm, which is a dramatic visual difference.
