o.k ? what the heck does this mean?

i want diamonds for valentines day and i was reading the fine print at the bottom of the advertisment and it said, diamond carot weights (ct.) represent tha approximate total weight (t.w.) of all diamonds in each setting and may vary no more than .07 below the stated weight.





what the hell is that? a white lie? i'm confused!!!!:(

  • It could also mean that they will add the weight of all the diamonds in a piece. Instead of 1 diamond at .93ct there could be 20diamond chips that total 1 ct give or take .07ct
