The term ‘Carat’ is a unit of weight, used to weigh Gems & Diamonds. The weight of Gem stones & Diamonds is always taken in Carat.
One carat consists of 100 cents also called points. 70 Pointer Solitaire means Diamond weight is 0.70 Carat. There are special weighing scales to take carat weight of precious stones. These scales need to be very accurate, precise & calibrated. Because even a small variation in weight can lead to big difference in their value & price. Also, In case of precious stones, ‘ More is the Carat weight, more is the rate per Carat’
1 Carat = 0.200 Gram
