How Big Do They Really Look?

As you cannot 'see' or read about weight on screen, it is best that you head down to the jeweller to get a feel of how big the size of the diamond is, given the carat weight.

One must bear in mind that a well-cut diamond reflects more light and appear bigger. Conversely, a badly cut diamond appears smaller. Also, a diamond cut too deep will have a smaller diameter.

Go down to your local jeweller and take a look at a well-cut diamond and a discount diamond of the same size. You will see what I mean.

As the size of the screen output differs with each monitor, this chart serves as a very rough guide at best.
