Fundamental Guidance

The actual dimension of a diamond is the most fundamental guide in your diamond search because this affects the overall appearance of size. For example, a customer looking for a 1.00 carat round diamond should use the actual dimensions of 6.5mm in diameter to secure a diamond that "faces up" the size indicated.

Too many people get caught up in all the depth and table literature, but then end up buying a diamond that "weighs" 1.00-carat but has actual dimensions comparable to a 3/4 carat to 7/8 carat. Does that make sense? Of course not! It's shocking how many people buy diamonds that certainly look much smaller than their weight would indicate. Please find the weight factor you want in your diamond to understand how large the diamond should face up.

Remember, this is only a guideline, but it will certainly put you in the right direction immediately!

ARE YOU SHOPPING NON-ROUND OR FANCY SHAPES?
The importance of knowing the actual dimensions of the non-round diamond increases tenfold on fancy cut diamonds. Huge majorities of fancy cut diamonds are cut very deep, so the actual weight of the diamond is carried in the bottom of the diamond. This distorts the actual "face up" of a diamond in relation to the weight. Again, just like the round guide above, you don't want to buy a 2.00-carat diamond that looks like a 1.50 carat. Use the chart below to understand what your diamond should measure up to be.

Plus, using these dimensions as a guide will help you focus on getting the most appealing shape of a fancy cut diamond.

For example, the most desired length to width ratio of a marquise shape is 2 to 1, (or length equals width x 2)

A spectacular 1.00-carat marquise should have 10mm x 5mm dimensions. Following this rule of thumb will not only eliminate about 70% of the diamonds out there, but more importantly, put you on track to locating the properly cut dream diamond of your choice.
