Diamond carat weight refers to the weight of a diamond, not its size. A 1 carat diamond simply means 0.2 grams of diamond. Technically speaking, one carat is equal to 200 milligrams or 100 points meaning that a diamond weighing 0.5 carats is 50 points.
As you search for the perfect diamond engagement ring, it is important to know that there are many different styles of shanks to accent your centre diamond. Although it may seem that the centre diamond is most important, the shank style can greatly enhance the way the engagement ring looks.
Here at Taylor and Hart we are supporting Ernie Blom, president of the WFDB in his campaign for cracking down on the issue of over grading in the industry.
We only use GIA graded diamonds like some other online jewellers. This is to ensure that all our customers have piece in mind in what they are buying and that all our diamonds are ethically sourced.
