How do you measure diamonds?

Answer

Diamonds are measured by carats, points and price. One carat equals 1/142nd of an ounce or 1/5th of a gram. So there are 142 carats in 1 ounce and 5 carats in 1 gram. One carat is divided into 100 points. So a 10-point diamond weighs 1/10th of a carat. Then the carat weight influences the price. So larger carat diamonds weigh more.
