What does carat mean?
A carat is a unit of weight for precious stones, equal to 200 milligrams.
Carat and Karat do not mean the same thing in that the word "karat" is relative to a percentage of gold in the metal alloy, and "carat" is a measurement of weight used for gemstones. Since gemstones have different densities, one carat weight of 2 different types of gems may not be the same size.
