1.5 Carat Diamond

What is a 1.5 Carat Diamond?

Carat (ct) weight denotes a diamond's size. A 1.5 carat diamond weighs the equivalent of 300 milligrams, or 0.30 gram.

The Standard

One carat diamonds are admittedly the most popular diamond size used in high-end jewelry pieces such as engagement rings and wedding bands. However, there are those customers who are looking for more prominent pieces of jewelry and who would rather have a more expensive, increasingly impressive diamond for their jewelry. The 1 1/2 or 1.5 carat diamond is the perfect choice for said customers, with its impressive appearance and its stunning brilliance.

What About Size?

A diamond's appearance will not always reflect a diamond's actual carat weight. 1 1/2 or 1.5 carat diamonds may, at times, seem smaller than 1.48 carat diamonds, depending on the diamond's characteristics. Generally speaking, the higher a diamond is in terms of its cut, color and carat grades, the larger and more prominent it will appear.

In order to get an idea of what a diamond would look like as seen from above, simply measure the distance of the diamond's crown (its top portion). As the diamond's crown is the widest part of a diamond, measuring its dimensions will give you a fair estimate of how large a diamond may appear.

1.5 Carat Diamond Prices?

Most customers believe that a diamond's evaluated price is in direct relation to its carat weight. Though it is true that a diamond's carat weight influences its price, its cut, clarity and color grades must also be taken into consideration when estimating the precious gemstone's value. A 1.5 carat diamond, for example, will be significantly more expensive than a one carat diamond with similar cut, clarity and color grades, as diamond prices significantly increase with each half carat mark.
