The Tapered Baguette Diamond Weight calculator computes the approximate weight of a tapered baguette shaped (cut) diamond based on the top and bottom horizontal widths, the length and the depth.
INSTRUCTIONS: Choose units and enter the following:
Tapered Baguette Diamond Carat Weight (Wt): The calculator returns weight of the diamond in carats. However, this can be automatically converted to other weight units (e.g. grams) via the pull-down menu.
wt = L • (TW + BW) /2 • D • 0.00915
The formula makes an approximation of the volume of the diamond based on the dimensions and the shape. It also accounts for the density of a diamond and combines the volume and density to estimate the weight.
