Why choose a 1.5 carat Diamond ?
A 1.5 carat diamond is the perfect balance of beauty and understated elegance - making it a favourite for the centre stone of many engagement rings.
If you are in the throes of diamond shopping (lucky you!) you will no doubt have heard all about the 4Cs – carat, clarity, colour and cut. Whilst we would always consider the quality of the cut to be the priority – as this has the most impact on the quality of light reflection – understanding carats is also an important factor to ensure you receive maximum value for money.
What is a 1.5 carat diamond?
It is essential to recognise that the carat of a diamond reflects its weight rather than its actual size. Carats are the measurement of this weight, with 1 carat equalling 0.20grams. Therefore a 1.5 carat diamond weighs in at 0.30grams. Weight is recorded to the nearest milligram to allow for absolute accuracy.
A Diamond this size be it a Baguette Cut, Princess Cut or Round Diamond will be of a significant size and value, and will make any engagement ring sparkle and stand out.
How much is a 1.5 carat diamond?
The price of a 1.5 carat diamond is dependent on a combination of its clarity, cut and colour. For example, a 2 carat diamond with reduced clarity and colour, would potentially cost less than a 1.5 carat diamond graded as colourless. As such, we recommend deciding on the stone qualities that are most important to you, to help narrow down your search and gain a true idea of worth.
For example a Marquise Cut Diamond at 1.5 carats can start from £4000, but another 1.5 carat stone can be quadruple or more in value depending on other factors such as diamond clarity grade (1.51ct closer to flawless clarity listed at £14,000 and beyond!) or colour grade (yellow diamonds may be cheaper than a more colourless option).
