Carat weight vs. diameter of a diamond

UPDATED:

How do carat and measurements relate? Or: How big is a 1 carat round diamond?

Karat ≠ Größe

Despite what many people think, “carat” is not a measurement unit for the size (as in diameter), but the weight of a diamond. One carat corresponds to 0.2 grams, which is roughly the weight of the eponymous carob seed: Because these seeds didn’t differ much in weight, they were used by early gem traders as counterweights in their balance scales. In 1913, the standard of a carat weighing 0.2 was established in the US and soon adopted all over the world. Carat is not to be confused with karat, which refers to the purity of gold.

Carat: The weight of a diamond

Obwohl das Karat-Gewicht somit kein direktes Maß für die Größe von Diamanten ist, gilt logischerweise dennoch:

Je schwerer ein Diamant, desto größer ist er

Das Karat-Gewicht bietet somit einen Richtwert zur Einschätzung, wie groß ein Diamant ist. Wie groß ein Stein in Relation zu seinem Karat-Gewicht wirkt, hängt jedoch auch mit dessen Schliff zusammen.

Hier finden Sie eine Übersicht über die Maße von Diamanten in Abhängigkeit zu deren Karatgewicht!
