Size and Weight

Gems are always measured in Millimeters (mm).

Compare mm Size with US coins.

Dimensions are given as height x width x depth.

Select gems by size, not by weight! Gem varieties vary in density, so carat weight is not a good indication of size

Note: 1ct = 0.2g


Additional Quantities

However, we often have similar or matching items. If so, we display them on the same gem details page.
