Selling diamonds that you own can sometimes be a hard decision. They may have been a family heirloom passed down from generation to generation, a gift from a person you cared about, or you may have just found it. Whatever the reason, sometimes you need to get some extra money. When selling diamonds it is critically important to understand how to determine the value of the diamond. Most jewelers will tell you the value straight up, and some may give you a lowball rate for them. Here is how you can determine the value of your diamonds yourself.
Remember the 4 C’s, cut clarity, color, and carat. These are the tools vital to understanding the value of your diamond. Clarity is determined by the color of the diamond and the type of diamond it is. Each one is represented with a grade so if you want to sell diamonds at a higher rate you are going to need a higher clarity grade. Next you will look at carat weight of the diamond. This is determined by the measurements and cut of the diamonds looking at the length, width, and height. Finally look at the finish or the polish of the diamond. Different treatments to the diamonds such bleaching or coating affect the value as well.
These are just a few of the ways you can check the value of your diamonds. There are plenty of retailers and online sources that can help you determine your diamonds worth as well. I would recommend trying Standard Gold. They give great pricing on your diamonds and make your selling experience easy and comfortable. Selling diamonds you have procured over time can be a great way to get that extra cash, and I hope this has allowed you to add a couple more $ in for that.
