Here is a selection of charts showing the Carat Weights of Diamond corresponding to their sizes. These are indicative only, as every diamond is cut slightly different and so will vary from these guide sizes.
Also, other gemstones, having different specific gravities, will weight more or less than diamond for the same sizes, so these charts will not be appropriate for those.
