From an American sitcom Friends S06E23, Transcript Here

[Scene: Joey and Rachel's, continued from earlier. Chandler is showing Rachel the ring.]

Chandler: Check out the ring.

Rachel: (gasps) Nice! One and a half carat easy.

What's the meaning of "easy" here?


In informal US English "easy" can be its own adverb, where you would formally use "easily". So the sentence means that the diamond is comfortably at least that much in weight.
