While size does matter; size is not a measure of your love

First and foremost; a carat is a unit of measurement used to weigh every diamond.  To put it in perspective; one carat is equal to 200 milligrams (or 0.2 grams). The different sizes range from 1/4 carat to 5 carat diamonds.  When it comes to the creation of diamonds (forming process), this process is very rare and are found in small amounts.  This means that the larger diamonds are found much less than the smaller ones which give them their rarity.
