FAQs About 1 Carat Diamonds

Many factors affect the price of any loose diamond, including shape, carat weight, cut, color, and clarity. Fancy-cut diamonds are more budget-friendly per carat weight than round brilliant diamonds of the same quality.

The size of a 1 carat diamond varies based on the diamond shape selected. Our diamond size chart breaks down the differences in the shapes.

When you want the look of a 1 carat diamond without a hefty price tag, consider "buying shy." This means purchasing a diamond with a carat size of .90 to .99 instead of a full carat. The difference won't be very discernible to the eye, but it will lower the price.

The term “carat weight” refers to a single diamond. The term “carat total weight” refers to all the diamonds used in a single piece. You'll hear carat total weight with diamond sidestone settings, halo settings, and other styles that use smaller stones to enhance the look of the center stone.

Top 1 Carat Diamond Reviews

A woman clasping her hands while wearing a wedding band and engagement ring.

She said yes and LOVED the ring

She absolutely loved this setting! I purchased a 1 carat round diamond for this setting. It's exactly what she was looking for, something simple, and elegant. In her words "It's like the diamond is floating on top!" It really accentuated the diamond. This setting would best suit someone with slender fingers since it's a 2mm setting.
