Diamond Weights
By Ezio Tuveri
Diamonds are measured in Carat Weight.
One carat weighs 200 milligrams. If a
diamond is referred to as four grains, this
Also means that it is a one carat diamond.
The word Carat comes from the word carob.
A carob is a bean that grows on a tree in the
Mediterranean. In the past, if a diamond
weighed the same as a carob seed, it was
one carob, or one carat.
for all that, in the far east, where Carob trees
do not grow, rice was used to measure the weight of a diamond. If a diamond weighed
as much as four grains of rice, it was four
grains ' or one carat as we comprehend it to be
now. The majority of diamond purchases
are for Diamonds"); that are 1/3 of a carat.
Beware when shopping for Diamonds"); that
are set or mounted. If other than one
diamond is used in the piece,


the tag on the
jewelry will give the total CTW or Carat
but it does not tell you the carat impact
of each hunk in the piece. You should ask
the seller for the total carat weight of the
largest diamond in the piece to surely
understand what you are buying.
