Manepally - Diamond Pointers

Welcome To Diamond Pointers

A metric "carat" is defined as 200 milligrams. Each carat can be subdivided into 100 'points.' ... For instance, the jeweler may refer to a diamond that weighs 0.25 carats as a 'twenty-five pointer. 'Diamond weights greater than one carat are expressed in carats and decimals.

It is a common mistake to think that the carat weight of a diamond is its size. Actually, carat weight is how much a diamond weighs, and while there is an increase in size for an increase in weight, the carat measure does not quantify a stone's size. Carats are more or less equivalent to two hundred milligrams, slightly less than one quarter ounce. Carats are also divided into one hundred points. Therefore, seventy-five points is the same thing as saying three quarters of a carat.

As the carat rating of a diamond goes higher, the relative rarity of the stone increases. Rareness is a good measure of price, but the relation is not linear. The price increases geometrically, which is to say that a two carat diamond will be worth more than two one carat diamonds. Or that one 50 point diamond will be worth more than double two 25 point diamonds. All these examples, of course, assume that the stone's are identical in every way other than weight.
