Do you have loose diamonds or diamond jewelry that you no longer want? If so, now is a good time to sell. Diamond prices have steadily increased over the last decade and with this growth, many jewelers are choosing to buy directly from the public. At Thompson Jewelers in both our jewelry store in Kissimmee FL and jewelry store in Orlando FL, we buy diamonds in exchange for cold hard cash. Here are just a few things you should know when you sell diamonds.
Before you can sell diamonds, you must know what you have. Not everyone is familiar with the grading system involved in diamond buying and these grading standards can vary from jeweler to jeweler.
To make the process run a little more smoothly, bring along any documentation you may have about the diamond. If you received a lab grading report with the purchase of the diamond, bring it with you as it may come in handy when negotiating a price. The most reliable sources of documentation come from the Gemological Institute of America (GIA) or the American Gem Society (AGS).
When you sell your diamonds, it is important to be realistic about the purchase price. Diamond prices are based on a wide range of factors, such as the clarity, color, cut, and carat weight of the stone.
