Moissanite Carat

All Moissanite stones are listed in the actual size (mm) and/or the diamond equivalent carat weight.

Carat is the traditional measuring unit of a diamond's weight (1 carat = 200 milligrams). A carat is divided into 100 "points," so the same diamond can be represented as weighing a carat and a half, 150 points or 1.50 carats. Moissanite stones are slightly lighter (less heavy) than diamonds. Therefore, while a 6.5mm round diamond weighs 1.0 carat, a 6.5mm moissanite weighs 0.88 carat. However, the two stones would be the same size, 6.5mm in diameter.

In order to minimize the confusion this can create, all Moissanite stones are listed in the actual size (mm) and/or the diamond equivalent carat weight.


Please reference our loose stone page for the full size to diamond equivalent carat weight conversion table.
