How Big is a 1 Carat Diamond Ring?

1 Carat diamond rings

A 1 carat diamond ring can be achieved in different ways. For example, a diamond cluster, or three stone ring will be a very different size to a single 1.00ct diamond solitaire ring.

The shape of the diamond will also affect the physical size. For example, the Marquise cut has a longer axis compared to the width and provides a completely different ratio of size to the round brilliant cut.

Gaining a better idea of the physical size of a diamond ring is much easier when a ring is seen in the flesh. Where this is not possible photographs are a great alternative.

Finding the perfect setting for a 1 carat diamond

With so many ring designs and styles available it can be very tricky to work out which style will be best for a 1 carat diamond. Traditionally, we see Round Brilliant diamonds set into simple 6 claw ring settings.

However, this shouldn’t be a setting style to settle for if it really isn’t to your taste. Shown below is our Unity diamond engagement ring. Holding a 1.00ct diamond tensioned between each side of the setting. The Diamond is open to the passage of light – revealing brilliance and scintillation.
