D1 coin ecosystem

The ecosystem of D1 Coin consists of Coin Owners, D1 Mint, D1 Reserve, and Diamond Suppliers. The D1 Mint and Diamond Suppliers are overseen and appointed by D1 Reserve, which also acts as a custodian by holding the diamond inventory. D1 Mint issues D1 Coins to Coin Owners, who can purchase and redeem diamonds from D1 Mint. D1 Mint functions as the central party in the D1 ecosystem coordinating the flow of D1 Coins, diamonds, and fiat currency.

1,6K Diamonds

Diamond carat weight is the measurement of how mush a diamond weighs. The carat (се) (not to be confused with the karat, sometimes spelt carat, a unit of purity of gold alloys), is a unit of mass equal to 200 mg (0.2 g; 0,007055 oz) and is used for measuring diamonds. The current definition, know as the metric carat, was adopted in 1907 at the Fourth General Conference on Weights and Measures.
Diamond weight was expressed in carats since late XVIth century. In the Mediterranean area, there is a tree called a «carob» tree bearing carob beans. As ancient traders travelled around the Mediterranean and surrounding areas, they turned to the carob deans as a unit of measurement.

Diamonds range:

Carats 0.5 – 6 ct
Clarity VS1 to Flawless
Color F and higher
Cut Very Good or Excellent
