The Diamond Buying Process

1. Specification

Our Diamond Buying Service buys your natural, untreated, and conflict-free diamonds that are certified by the Gemological Institute of America (GIA) or the American Gem Society Laboratory (AGS).

2. Understanding

We discuss the details of your diamond and why you are selling your diamond (if you are comfortable doing so) and ensure that selling is the best option.

Some customers would rather have their ring repurposed, redesigned, or have their diamond used in a new piece of jewelry. Others know from the get-go that they want to sell.

3. Paperwork

Original diamond certificates, appraisals, or any other paperwork available will be a great help when you sell your diamond ring. We will ask you to provide as much information as you can. Should you have concerns regarding lost paperwork, one of our representatives will be able to assist you. GIA and AGS-certified diamonds can have new certificates issued to them, and we can explain this process.

4. Shipping

If you are selling your diamond to us online, your diamond will be sent with safe, secure, and fully insured shipping at no charge. We operate with integrity and transparency; we know that sending a diamond can feel daunting, so we offer a safe, custom-focused service to put your mind at ease.

5. Follow Up

A representative will overview all documentation along with a thorough review of the diamond to ensure everything is precise. Once confirmed, the representative will contact you to complete the transaction.

6. Payment

We will pay for your diamond via FedEx or bank wire transfer for the fastest and safest payment possible.

Commonly Asked Questions: How To Sell My Diamond Ring

Need to know more? Here are some of our frequently asked questions from customers looking to sell their diamonds.

Yes. Anyone buying second-hand jewelry knows that natural wear and tear is going to happen. When we buy your diamond ring, it is only the center diamonds/diamonds that we are looking at. Even if your setting is scratched or shows signs of heavy wear, as long as the diamond is in perfect condition, it will not be an issue.

Just like when you buy a new diamond, the price for a second-hand diamond varies greatly. We will consider the cut, color, carat weight, and clarity, as well as the condition of the diamond. We will always aim to offer you the best possible price on your diamond.

Before you make the decision to sell your diamond, it is important to take into account a reasonable resale value. Many individuals find that while the jeweler they purchased the diamond from originally promised it was an ‘investment’, the reality can be quite different.

Whether your diamond goes up in value will depend on what you originally paid, the market when you sell, and most importantly, the quality of the diamond. Rare diamonds, sometimes referred to as ‘investment diamonds’ are those which hit the top-quality grades. These rare stones can indeed go up in value.
