Diamond Size: How big is a carat? | Diamond Quality Guides

What does a 1.50ct Diamond look like vs. a 2.0ct Diamond?

Nearly all of my clients request diamonds that have the “Best value for size, sparkle & brownie points.”

Below are 3 videos showing a range in diamond sizes between 1.50ct up to 2ct. (Watch toward the end where it shows how the diamond size looks on a finger for proportion.) The visual difference between a 1.50ct to a 1.60ct is not incredibly significant. You won’t notice a huge difference between diamonds sizes unless you go up at least a half size.

For example, going from a 1.50ct to a 2.0ct, or a 1.75ct to a 2.25ct.

Some men have a flexible budget and prefer to see how big stones look on the finger first, in which case, these videos below will be incredibly helpful to distinguish the size differences.
