CARAT-WEIGHT is a standard unit of weight used for gemstones. A diamond s weight is the easiest of the 4C's to measure. One carat is equal to 200 milligrams. CARAT-WEIGHT can be expressed as a decimal, fraction, or in "points." There are 100 points in a carat. A 50-point diamond is 1/2 a Carat.
CARAT-WEIGHT is probably the most well known characteristic in diamonds, yet it is the least important in determining the brilliance and beauty of a diamond. No matter what size, every Lazare Diamond offers maximum sparkle, fire and brilliance.
Every LAZARE® diamond is cut for maximum beauty, not weight.
The ideal cut is a mathematical formula for cutting diamonds to precise angles and proportions which guarantees you a spectacular balance of brilliance, scintillation and fire.
See for yourself by asking your jeweler to show you the difference between an ideal cut LAZARE® diamond and other diamonds. When you see it, you just know.
