- A diamond's weight is stated in carats & points. A point being 1% of one carat
- Remember carat is a measurement of weight NOT size
- Weight has the largest impact on diamond price
- Weight does not effect sparkle
- BIG is not always beautiful, think quality
- When ancient man first picked up a diamond in some African river bed, we assume he did NOT say, 'WOW that's big', surely he said 'WOW that sparkles!'
