In this video we will do a side by side diamond size comparison on the finger and hand as
well as give you different price comparisons at each size.
All along giving you different tips and tricks to help you save on diamond shopping.
We will compare all the diamond sizes in this video to this 1 Carat Diamond on a hand with
a size 6 finger.
This 1 carat diamond at Kay Jewelers like most Brick and Mortar jewelry stores is about
$19,600 and that is because it is very high quality.
In fact all the diamonds on the hands in this video are all an ideal cut and very high quality.
Now we also take those diamonds and compare them to the exact same quality diamond from
a link I will put in the description below this video.
This 1 carat is $9,150 so you'd save over $10,000 from my link below this video.
First lets start with a .25 or 1/4 carat diamond on the hand.
Compared to a 1 carat diamond it is very unimpressive and normally people don't go this low for
a center stone diamond.
Its main appeal only $580 from the link I have below.
Next we look at a .33 or 1/3 carat diamond.
Usually this is the lowest people go for a center stone diamond.
Carat is actually just the weight of the diamond so remember just because it is a higher Carat
doesn't necessarily mean it is visually bigger.
A .4 carat diamond is starting to look a little more substantial than the others.
Something to look out for: You can actually increase the carat size of the stone without
it looking bigger.
However since these diamonds are ideally cut you can be sure this is not the case.
A .5 carat or 1/2 carat diamond is a more common size of a diamonds.
If you would've bought this diamond at Jared you would have paid 1000 more than from my
recommended online store.
The first 4 diamonds we looked at compared to each other you can see a gradual increase
To make sure you get a good diamond that looks its carat size check the GIA diamond certificate
for an excellent or ideal cut before buying a diamond in a store otherwise the diamond
store will have the diamond cut so that it doesn't look as big as the carat.
Watch my other diamond videos if you want more information on that.
This is a .66 or 2/3 carat diamond.
While it is getting closer to 1 carat it still looks a bit smaller.
Online you'd save over 4 thousand on a ideal diamond this size.
A .7 or 3/4 carat diamond is starting to get close to a 1 carat diamond.
Kay Jewelers has this diamond at 10,400 but only 3,900 from the link you can find below
This is a .85 carat diamond.
Another way diamond stores trick you is by advertising the total carat diamond weight
of a ring as opposed to just the center stones carat weight.
If this had little diamonds all around it they could say it's 1.5 Carat TW or Total
Weight and hope you didn't know.
.95 Carat Diamonds and above are Interesting diamonds.
Most people like buying slightly below 1 carat because the difference in size is so minute.
But the cost jumps a lot as soon as you hit the one carat.
Plus most people still just call it a 1 carat diamond because it is so close.
So you are getting the best of both worlds.
I really recommend sticking slightly below 1 carat unless you are looking to go way above
And once again all these diamonds have an ideal cut if they didn't the jewelers could
play with the angles of the diamonds to make the carat weight go up without the appearance
of it going up.
Here is a 1.25 or a 1 1/4 carat diamond on the finger.
On this you'd save $17000 buying it from the link below this video.
A 1 1/3 carat diamond for some reason to me is where diamonds start really looking big.
Maybe it's just me but when I see this diamond I think "Wow" Rarely people buy diamonds this
But now you know where to get a deal so that maybe you can get one this big.
This is a 1 1/2 or 1.5 carat diamond comparison.
And in my opinion this size on the hand is when you start looking like a high roller.
This diamond is close to a $20,000 dollar savings.
This is a 2 carat diamond on the finger.
I decided to show you the price for this diamond at Helzberg Diamond Store which is over $84,000.
I just want to show you it doesn't matter which Brick and Mortar jewelry store you go
to, They are all over priced.
My number tip to buying a diamond is to have you significant other go diamond shopping
at the mall with you or her best friend.
Making note of the diamond specs that she chose and come buy the same quality diamond
from the link in this video and you'll save money or you can spend the same amount you
would have spent and get an even bigger diamond.
Then just take it to the diamond store and set it in their favorite band.
This is a 2 1/2 carat diamond.
Its price is less expensive than the 2 carat diamond we just looked at.
The savings come from lower clarity which isn't even that bad of a clarity but you need
to know what to look out for.
Here is a 2 3/4 near a 3 carat diamond on the hand.
It is huge!
At this point if you buy this diamond you are just plain showing off how much money
you have and kudos to you.
But if you got the money why not buy the diamond that they will be wearing for the rest of
Lastly, we have almost a 4 carat diamond on the finger, and it almost looks bigger than
Seriously though this is just huge.
