Hi Bees!! So my SO was explaining to me what the jewler said to him, he said a diamond could weigh X, considered the carat weight and meassure more or less in the top part (diameter I’m guessing).
So what do you Bees think about this one? (Finger size 6.5)
Sorry I have no clue on how to resize….

@2013septemberbride: Are you asking because you genuinely don’t know? And are you sure your feelings won’t get hurt if someone guesses a number smaller than what it actually is? These posts sometimes don’t end well. Anyway, I would guess somewhere between .75 to 1 carat.

Id say a little over a ct.

Somewhere around a ct? It looks pretty similar to mine, give or take a quarter carat – hard to say because my fingers are a 7.5.

I’d say 0.8 (assuming it’s ideal cut for the diameter). If it’s cut deep, it could be up to a carat?

Also this is very true what your jeweler said and my diamond is a good example. It is 2.4 carats but only 8.22 mm across. It should be closer to 9 mm, but holds a lot of the carat weight in it’s depth, which I actually think is a bad thing. I think I get less “face-up” size for my money with the way my stone is cut.

@somethingaquamarine: I really don’t know 🙂 SO said he would have to find the piece of paper he got from the jewler and then went off talking about the weight and diameter and I was totaly lost in translation. Have you ever hear this weight number vs diameter meassurment?

Looks about a carat to me, maybe 1.5. Like the jeweler said though, carat is a measure of weight, so a shallow diamond can look larger from the top, whereas a deep one will look smaller although they both weigh the same. So it’s hard to tell from just a top view.
I love the classic solitaire.

@Miss Leopard: ok ok makes sense! I didn’t know if jewler had taken advantage of my SO ! LOL thanks

Yes, diamonds of the same carat weight can have different spreads based on how well they’re cut. When you are looking at diamonds, you should look at the diameter along with the carat (this should be on the grading report.)
That stone looks good on your hand, but I think the shank of the e-ring is a little thick. A thinner one will make the stone pop more.
I think it looks around a carat.

1.75? Definitely over 1.5.
