Size Charts

 

Size/Weight Comparison Charts

How to use these charts: Gemstones will vary slightly because of the different densities of the the stone, For example you can see from the first chart that a 6mm round brilliant diamond might weigh 0.90 ct while a 6mm Ruby in an equivalent 6mm size would weigh approximately 1.05 cts. These numbers are estimates only and can vary based on a stones depth, but should still give you a general idea on how density can effect a stones weight.
