Hi, this is Olga Gonzalez, and this is size of a one carat sapphire. When measuring sapphires, there are two things that take size into account. One, is the millimeter size, which is the length, width, and depth of the sapphire. And, the other is the carat size, which is the weight of the sapphire. To measure the carat weight sapphire, all you need to do is put it on a carat scale. And, to measure the millimeters of a sapphire, whether it’s oval or any other shape, all you need to do is put it on a millimeter gauge, or you can use a ruler.
