If I see a piece of jewelry that is 33 pt TW diamond what does that mean? how does that translate into carats? Is it 33 percent? or .33 carats?


The preceding form was filled out on our Ask Forum page.

this is an abreviation for 'points'; one hundred points is equal to one carat. TW is for total weight ; all the stones in this setting add up to 0.33 carats in all.

So if you saw something that said '34pts bag, 22pts rb, 56pts TW', the ring would have 0.56 carats of diamonds in total, 0.34 of bagettes, and 0.22 of round brilliants.

Hope this helps,
Michelle

100 points = 1 carat.

.33 points = 1/3 carat
