Just how rare is a 5 carat diamond of gem quality?  It’s really hard to say.  Most mine estimates indicate that on average 250 tons of potentially diamond bearing rock must be processed in order to yield a diamond of one carat.  And only about 20 percent of diamonds found are of gem quality.  The rest have only value for the abrasives industry.

Approximately half the weight of the original rough diamond is lost in the cutting process- significantly more, if the diamond is cut to ideal specifications.  It is estimated that a finished diamond of one carat represents about a 1 in a million proposition relative to all diamonds produced.
 
And diamond rarity increases exponentially with size, so a 5ct diamond like either of the extraordinary diamonds below is likely to be one in tens of millions.  Not very good odds – unless you happen to own one!  Then the odds are that you are very, very fortunate.

Find Your 5 Carat Super Ideal Cut Round Diamond

The good fortune of owning such a diamond extends beyond the financial implication. In actual fact, large diamonds exhibit light performance aspects that smaller diamonds are not able to display as well.  This has to do with optical characteristics related to the size of the facets and the dispersion of light into spectral components which the human eye perceives as ‘fire’.  Assuming the diamond is cut into a classic arrangement such as the classic 57 facet round brilliant, the resulting facets on the 5 carat diamond will be physically larger by several orders of magnitude than those on a one carat.  Larger physical facets allow for larger ‘virtual’ facets, multiple light rays reflecting from a single facet.
 
 Light rays that are refracted with colors dispersed and reflecting off of a large facet increases the likelihood that a distinct portion or the spectral array will be ‘clipped’ by the pupil of your eye and perceived as an individual color such as blue or green, yellow or red. This provides more opportunities for fire to be observed in fire friendly lighting environments.  Scintillation patterns are more easily observed in larger diamonds as well, and diamonds with a balanced mix of virtual facet sizes with display better scintillation – sparkles of white and colored light.
 
So, the argument can be made that not only is a five carat diamond bigger and more impressive than smaller diamonds, but can be more beautiful as well.  It must be emphasized that the beauty of a given diamond depends more on the quality of the cut than on any other factor.  Not all diamonds are actually optimized for beauty.  The sad fact is that most are not.  A certified ideal cut diamond is one that has been cut for top light performance, requiring more skill, more time, and the sacrifice of more carat weight in the process. But the results are without a doubt well worth the sacrifice!

Bottom Line Recommendation:

We strongly recommend only considering 5 Carat Diamonds with an ideal cut or Excellent grade cut on the GIA scale. Be sure to purchase your stone from a prominent diamond dealer that offers a GIA or ASG certification with every diamond, like James Allen or Blue Nile. And if you think diamonds like those are not sold online, think again. Here is a 2.5 million dollar diamond

Because of the exceptional carat weight, 5 Carat Diamonds have tremendous capacity for brilliance, sparkle and fire. For Color, choose a diamond that falls between G-I . For Clarity, we recommend looking at diamonds within the VS1 or VS2 grades. 

A stunning, well-cut 5 Carat Diamond will turn heads and make your loved one feel extraordinary. But buying any 5 Carat Diamond won’t get you the results you want. You could buy a poorly cut, dull 5 Carat Diamond or one that’s exceptional, like this 5 Carat Diamond Ring in platinum.

Diamonds of the same carat weight differ dramatically in their overall beauty and appearance. If you’re considering a 5 Carat Diamond, contact us and we’ll help you find one that’s truly extraordinary.

5 Carat Diamonds Has Nothing To Do With the Size

When we refer to 5 Carat Diamonds, we’re talking about the weight of the diamond, not its size. 5 Carat is equal to 1 gram. To put it in perspective, thumbtacks and paperclips weigh about 1 gram each.

People often misconstrue Weight with Size and it was important to provide this distinction before we move on to the other importants points on 5 Carat Diamonds.

5 Carat Diamonds Ring Price

The price of a 5ct diamond starts somewhere around $9,000 per carat (only referring to K+ and SI2 diamonds). This 5.19ct I/VS2 Round Diamond costs $14,879 per carat.

It’s important to understand that all diamonds are priced per carat. For instance, this 4.01 carat diamond might be priced at $12,057 per carat. The diamond’s price is $12,057 x 4.01, equaling $48,350.

Diamond prices per carat also increase as weight categories increase. For example, a 2.01 Carat diamond might be priced at $7,535 per carat, while a similar 3 Carat Diamond might be $10,315 per carat. The price per carat increases exponentially with weight for two reasons: the diamond’s higher weight value and the higher price per carat within the weight category.

Take note of each weight ‘category,’ as prices per carat don’t continually increase as weight increases. Diamond prices are generally driven more by emotion than reason.

3 Carat Vs 4 Carat Vs 5 Carat Vs 6 Carat Diamond Rings

While it may seem advantageous to search for a diamond that’s just below a new weight category—such as a 4.90 or 4.95 Carat Diamond—that isn’t true anymore. Diamond cutters have become more efficient at their job and it’s incredibly rare to find a well-cut 4.90 Diamond.

In addition, the search for an “almost” 5 Carat Diamond has become increasingly popular. This popularity elevates the prices of those particular diamonds—making the price difference nominal. Ultimately, you can search for a 4.90ct+ diamond, but we suggest not doing this specifically, as you’re severely limiting your search potential without really saving anything.

If you’re in the market for a 5 Carat Diamond, review this guide to learn how to select a stunning diamond instead of a dud. By understanding a few of the diamond fundamentals, you’ll enjoy incredible payoff with the overall appeal and beauty of your stone.

Please also feel welcome to reach out to our diamond experts.  We strongly suggest this service for those purchasing 4 Carat and 5 Carat Diamonds. The higher your budget, the more you need to be aware of what makes an exceptional stone versus one that’s lackluster. We can help you source diamonds and review them before a purchase is made.

Where To Buy a 5 Carat Diamond Ring

The Difference Between Diamond Carat and Diamond Size

Diamond Carat and Diamond Size are frequently mistaken as meaning the same thing. Diamond Carat, however, refers to the weight of the diamond—whereas Diamond Size refers to how large it appears.

A larger sized diamond doesn’t mean it has a larger carat weight. The surface area of the table, the depth and other shape features are not impacted by carat weight. These aspects depend largely on Diamond Shape and how the diamond is cut—both of which contribute to how large the diamond appears.

As an example, a 5 Carat Princess Cut Diamond ring may appear larger than a 5 Carat Round Brilliant Diamond ring like this one. Both shapes are excellent choices (except the Princess Cut example is a poorly cut diamond). The size of each stone appears different, even though the carat weights are nearly the same.

All cuts size comparison 5ct

You can check out our comparison image below where we lined up the average sizes of the most common shapes in 5ct next to a US quarter.

When it comes to choosing the shape, size and carat of your diamond, review several options to determine which diamonds are most appealing to you.

Clarity Rating for 5 Carat Diamond Rings

A diamond’s 4 C’s (Cut, Color, Clarity and Carat Weight) impact its beauty and brilliance in varying ways.

Diamond Clarity is a metric that grades the visual appearance of each diamond. The less blemishes and inclusions, the better the clarity grade.

The GIA’s scale of clarity grades ranges from best to worst:

Internally Flawless (IF), Very Very Small Inclusions 1 (VVS1), Very Very Small Inclusions 2 (VVS2), Very Small Inclusions 1 (VS1), Very Small Inclusions 2 (VS2), Small Inclusions 1 (SI1), Small Inclusions 2 (SI2), Inclusions 1 (I1), Inclusions 2 (I2).

While Clarity can significantly impact a diamond’s beauty, most imperfections can’t be recognized by the naked eye. You should closely review the diamond yourself to determine if any imperfections are visible. Have an expert assist you in order to avoid spending too much on a characteristic that will go unnoticed.

The difference between two grades, such as VS1 and VVS2, are rarely noticed by the naked eye, although the price can differ significantly. Assuming all else is equal, an eye-clean diamond that’s graded lower than a flawless diamond will look identical. The difference is just in the price.

5.04ct H/VS2 Princess Cut from Blue Nile – Click to View Details

For 5 Carat Diamonds, we suggest a minimum of a VS2 Clarity due to their significant carat weight. To the naked eye, most imperfections are invisible at this grade.

To maintain a reasonable spend in the area of Clarity, the highest we generally recommend is a VVS2 diamond, as no blemishes or inclusions will be noticeable.

Overall, you should be looking for an eye-clean diamond. Enlist the help of an expert if you’re not completely confident.

5 Carat Diamond Ring Shapes

You can find stunning 5 Carat Diamonds in almost any Diamond Shape—or at least have one custom cut for you. The shape you choose should be based on the personal preference and style of the wearer.

If a larger appearance is important, it may be helpful to consider the table surface areas for each Diamond Shape.

The chart below lists the table surface size for each shape:

Diamond ShapeApproximate Table Surface Area for 5 Carat

5 Carat Diamond Ring Colors

Diamond Color is graded by the GIA on a scale from D to Z. D diamonds represent the most clear, colorless diamonds and Z indicates diamonds with a noticeable brown or yellow tint.

The difference between each single grade is primarily unnoticeable to the naked eye. James Allen explains this in their Diamond Color article: “Most people find it very difficult (if not impossible) to tell the difference from one color grade to another.” The difference in price, however, can be significant.

5.11ct Radiant Cut Diamond from Abe Mor

Because the difference between color grades can be minimal, we recommend reviewing the diamond closely to ensure it appears colorless. What you notice with your naked eye is more important than the Color grade. With advanced photography, you can look at diamonds up-close even online.

You want to make sure the diamond also appears white in relation to its setting. A J graded diamond like this will appear white when paired with a darker setting, like one made of yellow gold or rose gold. The diamond, however, will likely appear tinted if placed in a white gold or platinum setting.

On the other hand, an H diamond will appear colorless in any type of precious metal like this platinum solitaire setting. Look at the picture above of the 5.11ct Radiant Cut diamond from Abe Mor. It’s an H/VS1 graded diamond is a simple platinum setting and it looks gorgeous.

We recommend choosing a 5 Carat Diamond in the nearly colorless range of G to I. These diamonds appear clear and colorless to the naked eye and will cost much less than those in the D to F range.

Remember that Cut is the element that most drastically impacts a diamond’s beauty. With an exceptionally well-cut diamond, like those in the Brian Gavin Signature Hearts and Arrows Diamond collection, the harder it is to notice Color. We recommend spending more on Diamond Cut than Diamond Color, no matter the carat weight.

Ask a diamond expert to help you assess Diamond Color.

How To Get The Best Value For a 5 Carat Diamond Ring

Our goal is to help you find the most exceptional 5 Carat Diamond at an excellent price point. We want you to spend your budget where it truly matters—and scale back in areas that will go unnoticed.

Most importantly, we recommend reviewing every 5 Carat Diamond yourself or having an expert assist you.

Verify that any diamond you’re considering comes with a certificate from a reputable source (GIA or AGS). If a seller is suggesting you purchase a diamond from a different grading entity, it’s best to steer clear—especially with 5 Carat Diamonds. No matter what the report claims, the actual quality of the diamond is far less than what the certificate states.

To ensure your 5 Carat Diamond is truly stunning, follow our expert recommendations:

  • Shape: Choose the Diamond Shape that’s most appealing to you and the wearer. Select a jewelry setting that provides stability.
  • Cut: Only select diamonds with an ideal cut or Excellent grade on the GIA scale. An exceptionally cut diamond optimizes the brilliance and fire of the stone.
  • Clarity: Look for diamonds of either VS1 and VS2 Clarity grade. These grades will give you the best value for what can be seen with the naked eye. In other words, imperfections are unnoticeable at these grades.
  • Color: Consider diamonds in the nearly colorless range of G to I. These stones appear clear to the naked eye and cost much less than diamonds in the D to F range.
  • Diamond Vendor: Purchase your diamond from a respected diamond seller like Brian Gavin Diamonds, Abe Mor DiamondsJames Allen  and Blue Nile.

We’ve helped many of our readers work directly with diamond importers and boutique jewelry designers. If you’re unsure about carat weight, we have a buying guide for 4 Carat Diamonds as well.

A 5 carat diamond ring is an ideal size

Perfect for any type of jewelry, and with a weight that you can feel, a 5 carat diamond is the perfect gift for special occasions. The price of a diamond is determined by experts that appraise the quality grade of each of the 4Cs as defined by the GIA: clarity, cut, color and carat. Many people think carat is a unit of size, but it is in fact a unit of weight: one carat weighs 200 milligrams, or 0.007 ounces. However, if carat weight increases then so does the diamond’s size. And 5 carats diamonds are truly big. You will actually feel the weight when you wear it.

How much does it cost?

A 5 carat diamond weighs 1.0 gram and a Round Brilliant Cut has a diameter of 11.0mm. Diamond Pricing: the prices per carat for 5 carat stones range from $9,350 to $147,400 PER CARAT. From 5 carats and up, diamonds are large enough to be cut into Heart Shape diamonds. Because of the Heart’s complex shape it will look more beautiful when the stone is larger. But no matter which shape you prefer, this is an extraordinary stone with a sparkle that is perfect for those very special occasions.5 carat diamond size comparison
