Carat refers to the weight of a diamond. The term carat comes from carob seeds which, because of their uniform weight, were used in ancient times as measuring standards. Weighing diamonds has come a long way since ancient times, but some of the traditional terms are still used by some dealers. For example, a half-carat diamond is a two-grainer; a three-quarter carat a three-grainer, a one-carat a four-grainer, etc.
