What Is Better: Buying a 1 or 2 carat diamond?
Different cities have varying standards for diamond engagement ring size. Nationwide, a 1 carat diamond is standard. However, in South Florida, larger diamonds are more prevalent. Some clients prefer a smaller, higher quality diamond; some clients prefer a larger, lower quality diamond. Ultimately, it depends on personal preference and budget.
Is the difference between 1 carat and 2 carat that much more?
It takes 250 tons of Earth moved to mine a 1 carat gem quality diamond! Therefore, the rarity of a 2 carat diamond is exponentially greater. This is why the price of a 2 carat diamond can be up to 5 times the price when comparing it to a 1 carat diamond of the same color and clarity.
