Why Choose a 2 Carat Diamond?

Looking for wow factor? A 2 carat diamond won’t disappoint.

If you’re in the market for a diamond you’ll probably already be familiar with the 4Cs of carat, clarity, colour and cut. Combined, it is these factors that determine the value and quality of your stone. And, although it is often the latter of these that can have the most impact on a diamond’s beauty, being aware of carats - and their impact on the overall look and feel of a diamond - will help you to get the best value for your money.

What is a 2 carat diamond?

A carat is the measurement of a diamond’s weight, not its size. One carat equates to 0.20grams and weighing is extremely precise – to the nearest 0.01ct.

A 2 carat diamond is equal to 0.40grams and, as a general rule, the heavier the stone the larger it is likely to be - but this is not always the case. Other factors, such as the cut, can affect the size.    

How much is a 2 carat diamond?

Whilst typically you would expect a 2 carat diamond to cost more than a 1.5 carat stone, no one factor can determine the price. For example, you could have a 2 carat diamond with poor clarity that would cost less than a lighter diamond classified as flawless.

If colour and sparkle are the qualities closest to your heart, then opting for a premium colour grade and clarity with a slightly smaller carat, could be the right choice for you.
