Different Gemstone Densities
The Carat Weight of a gemstone does not necessarily allow you to accurately envision the size of the gemstone. Different gemstones have different densities (mass per unit of volume), so two gemstones that appear to be the same size may actually have very different weights. For example, a ruby is more dense than a diamond, so a 1 carat ruby will look smaller than a 1 carat diamond.
Always request the dimensions of a color gemstone to ensure that the majority of the gemstone carat weight will be visible when set in the jewelry setting.
Here at The Jewelry Hut Gemstone Jewelry Gallery Store, to help you to envision the gemstone’s actual appearance, will provide our valued customers the gemstone dimensions (for round shapes) or length and width (for other gemstone fancy shapes) of a given gemstone.
