Millimeters to Carats Princess Stones
Converting millimeters to carats for princess-cut stones, particularly diamonds, is not a direct and linear process because carats measure weight, not size. Princess-cut diamonds have a square or rectangular shape with pointed corners, and their size is determined by their length, width, and depth, all measured in millimeters.
However, I can provide approximate size ranges for princess-cut diamonds at different carat weights. Keep in mind that these are general guidelines, and the actual sizes can vary based on the specific cut, proportions, and individual characteristics of the stone:
– 0.5 carats: Approximately 4.5 mm x 4.5 mm
– 1.0 carat: Approximately 5.5 mm x 5.5 mm
– 1.5 carats: Approximately 6.3 mm x 6.3 mm
– 2.0 carats: Approximately 7.1 mm x 7.1 mm
These estimates are based on standard proportions for well-cut princess diamonds. The actual dimensions can vary based on the specific cut and depth of the individual stone.
When purchasing a princess-cut stone, it’s essential to consider both the carat weight and the specific dimensions to assess its visual appearance. Additionally, factors such as cut quality, color, and clarity significantly influence the overall beauty and value of the diamond.
For accurate information tailored to a specific princess-cut stone, it’s recommended to consult with a jeweler or gemologist. They can provide details about the stone you are interested in, including its dimensions and carat weight, allowing you to make an informed decision based on your preferences and budget.
