I hope this comes out right. It should be a 2.5, next to a 2.4, next to a 1.5+

(Great picture, Butterfly! I will note that it was a man's hand, so the stones are really bigger than they look!)

Here's one of a 1.0, 1.2, and 1.4 on a hand (from Good Old Gold)

Excellent work DS!

Just bear in mind for new members reading, that sizes may be approximate and can vary, so use as a guide only, also that the chart measurements may be optimistic in some cases, according to one of the experts here.

This really should go into the FAQ section where it can be found and referred to easily.

This is a comparison of 1 ct., 1.2 cts., 1.5 cts. and 2 cts.

Great thread - useful info AND shiny things to admire! :)

Is it just me, or does anyone else think that the half carat jump from 0.5ct to 1ct is more dramatically noticeable than the jump from 1.5ct to 2ct?


Is it because the 0.5ct increase is a greater % of the initial carat weight in the first case than the second, so appears more noticeable?

Size jumps are less noticable the larger you go, with the bigger diamonds of 1.5 to 2 cts for example, than with the smaller carat weights Cleo, so yes you are right! That is why sometimes when wanting to increase face up size when you already have a largeish diamond, you have to go bigger still to get a noticable difference, but of course people's various size perceptions can vary.
