Which Carat Diamond Is the Best?
Everyone wants to make the best decisions when it comes to selecting a diamond! Which carat diamond is the best then? :)
This is a question best answered yourself as it’s not one size fits all. Fret not though, I’m here to offer guidance! Popular carats come at intervals of 0.5, 1, 1.5, 2, etc. These are sometimes called magic intervals.
Now, to put my recommendation into perspective, I’ll give a little context. I'm tall but my fingers are chubby. The best carat size for my hands in a way that I can easily do my light daily activities is 2. If you're active, then be more careful when it comes to choosing high carats. My friend's hands are chubbier compared to mine. But she works in her office so she wears a sparkly 5 carat one.
Let's be honest. The best size is what you can handle in two ways. If you do light stuff go as big as possible. If you're active, keep it as high as possible without letting it get in your way. That said, if you’d like the most sought after diamonds, you will want to be looking at the 2-3 carat range. Or, you could go bigger if you want to rock that rock (pun unintended!) ;)
