The Larger a Diamond, the More Rare
Larger diamonds are found relatively infrequently in nature, which places them at the highest level of the
Diamond Chart. What also makes a bigger diamond so desirable is that it shows off a stones fine color and cut,
and therefore its brilliance, to its best advantage. A diamond's size is measured in carat weight, and each
carat is equal to 100 points. A 0.50-carat diamond is the same as a 50-point diamond or a 1/2-carat stone.
While larger diamonds are highly prized, diamonds of equal size may vary widely in value and brilliance,
depending on their qualities of clarity, cut, and color.
