Carat weight affects prices of diamonds dramatically and determining the accurate carat weight is critical for anyone in the jewelry industry. Many people think of carat weight as the size of a diamond. However, two diamonds of the same weight can look very different in size. If a diamond is cut deep and narrow, it will look much smaller than another diamond of the same weight that is cut shallow and wide. The jeweler with a Sartorius GK703 on their showcase counter top could be the competitive advantage of a customer choosing your jewelry store over the guy next door. When a customer sees a quality high precision balance in your store this builds confidence the client is getting what they are paying for.
