Diamonds: Does Size Matter?

September 12th, 2017


It seems like everyone will measure the greatness of an engagement ring on the size of the diamond. The bigger the stone, the better the ring, right? Is this really the case? Does the size of the diamond really matter?

In reality, no, it doesn’t. Just because someone has a huge diamond on their finger doesn’t mean their ring is better than someone with a smaller one. In fact, a lot of the time, large diamonds can be impractical and look really strange on a small finger.

Instead of worrying about the size, focus on other elements of the diamond instead. Below, you will see a few things that really matter when you’re buying a diamond engagement ring:


It’s amazing how many people don’t understand that the weight of a diamond is measured in carats. Most of us assume that carats refer to the size of the diamond, which is not the case. As such, you can have a small diamond with a high carat value and a big one with a tiny value. The big one may dwarf the small one in terms of size, but the smaller one is heavier and far more expensive. If you’re keen to get a diamond that’s very expensive and valuable, think about the carat weight rather than the actual physical size of the diamond.


The way a diamond sparkles is also way more important than how big it is. Diamonds that sparkle in the light look way better than bland ones that don’t. This is all down to how the diamond is cut. A well-cut one will take in light and give off an incredibly sparkly look that dazzles everyone nearby.


Too many people don’t give this a second thought when buying diamonds. The whole process of mining for diamonds can be highly unethical. So many companies take advantage of poor areas to hire labor forces that work in horrible conditions for hardly any pay. As such, it matters a lot if your diamond is ethically sourced. Ethical companies like Brilliant Earth make it clear where their diamonds come from and how they’re sourced. Make sure you ask your jeweler about this before you buy a diamond. An ethical one will carry more value and be a lot better than one that’s unethical.


This refers to how clear the diamond is and how many natural flaws it has. The best diamonds are rated as being flawless, with absolutely no visible flaws whatsoever. It’s no good buying a huge diamond ring if the stone has lots of visible flaws. The value is decreased, and you’ve not got yourself a very good diamond.

In summary; no, size doesn’t matter. Don’t automatically assume that a big diamond is a good diamond. There are plenty of other factors to consider before determining if a diamond ring is of good-quality or not. Think about the four things mentioned above and stop worrying about the size. Small diamonds can often be way better than some big ones.
