When it comes to diamonds, a 1.5-carat diamond is close to average, a 2-carat diamond is amazing in its own right, but a 3-carat diamond is nothing less than breathtaking!
Partly due to its price tag, such a stone represents a symbol of power, luxury and eternity. Large diamonds are available in all shapes and cuts and can be set in a ring or a necklace.
What is a large diamond?
The weight and value of a diamond is estimated in carats. One carat equals 200 milligrams or 0.2 grams. Most common diamonds are 1 carat or less. For example, a solitary ring is usually between 0,5 and 1 carat. Large diamonds are considered to be 3 carats and more. A 3 carat diamond is rare and valuable which make it a good investment as well as an outstanding gift.
The biggest diamond in the world is the famous Cullinan Diamond. At 3106,75 carats, this diamond is the largest rough gem-quality diamond ever found. The Cullinan Diamond was cut into 105 diamonds and is now part of King Edward’s sceptre in the Tower of London.
The price of a 3-carat diamond
The larger the diamond is, the rarer it is. As the carat size of a diamond increases, the diamond price increases exponentially. Fewer than one in a million rough stones are large enough to produce a finished 1-carat diamond. So, as carat weight increases, you will typically pay more not only in total, but on a price-per-carat basis as well.
