Carat weight is not size appearance. How big and bright a diamond looks is a function of its vertical spread and cut quality details.
The goal of diamond producers is to get the most carat weight possible from starting rough crystals. This typically means cutting at steeper angles, increasing weight with depth which doesn't benefit appearance. Diamonds of identical weight can have different vertical spread. The grading report gives measurements in millimeters. The first two numbers are minimum and maximum spread.
The goal of Crafted by Infinity is high performance. Precision-cut for better brightness, Infinity remains bright even in low lighting where other diamonds can go dark and look smaller. We regularly hear our clients' 0.80 and 0.90 carat Infinity Diamonds are thought to be more than a carat, even placed side by side with one-carat diamonds. This better brightness benefit increases as carat weight increases.
Bright jewelry store lights make all diamonds look good. The real test comes when the diamond leaves the store and becomes observed through the infinite panoramas of real-world lighting that we live in, especially our typical social lighting conditions. That's where you'll want better brightness, more fire, more sparkle and more life.
Only a fraction of the world’s diamonds have Crafted by Infinity's cut quality. They are rare enough that most people have never seen one. Be sure to view them with your own eyes. They must be seen to be believed.
