Diamond Carat Size | Gem Gossip Diamond Carat Size | Gem Gossip

This month's article I wrote for The Knot got me doing some hands-on investigating, as I took a closer look at one very important C of the Four Cs: Carat size. Thanks to King Jewelers in Nashville for supplying me with diamond for this story. The diamonds pictured above are as follows:

Smallest to largest (bottom to top):

1.00 carat, VS-2 clarity, G color

2.01 carat, SI-1 clarity, F color

3.01 carat, SI-2 clarity, G color

4.02 carat, SI-2 clarity, G color

Very nicely put. Carat is the most talked about of the 4 Cs. Then you need to mix and match the other Cs until
you get the right Diamond for you.

I like the size of the 3.01 carat diamond. It's not monstrous and it's not eenie meenie.
