4 Tips for Selling Your Diamond or Estate Jewelry

blog-article-mb
To help unravel the mysteries of diamond selling, here are four tips to consider before selling your stone.

1. Know what you’ve got

Just because your grandmother said her diamond ring was valuable doesn’t make it an actual fact. It may not even make it a diamond. So, before you rush to market, get an accurate picture of its quality and authenticity. A qualified appraiser can give you a true analysis of the stone’s characteristics and condition, and highlight positive and negative attributes that could affect its value.

2. Set a realistic price

Having unrealistic price expectations for your diamond is the fastest way to disappointment with any ultimate sale. If having an appraisal, ask how much the stone might be worth in specific markets and circumstances. A good appraiser follows current market trends and can help you understand the potential resale value of your diamond.

3. Investigate your selling options

Resellers of diamond jewelry have two options: sell to the jewelry industry or to the public.  Choosing a buyer isn’t always about getting the top price, but is often a function of how quickly you can settle the deal and how much you trust the buyer.

The primary advantage of selling to someone in the jewelry industry is time. If you want to sell quickly and safely with little fuss over marketing, use a company that is known for buying and selling diamonds. The most important thing is to choose someone you trust. Be sure to always check their Better Business Bureau rating and choose a company that is dedicated to ethical business practices.

4. Be emotionally ready to sell

Because diamonds are often symbols of passion or love, they can be harder to part with than any other piece of jewelry. Nonetheless, you have to leave emotions out of selling. Sentimental value may raise the price of the diamond in your eyes, but a potential buyer won’t be so moved.

If you are planning on selling estate jewelry or diamonds, don’t forget these 4 tips, Know what you have, set a realistic price, investigate your selling options, and most importantly, be emotionally ready to sell. When you are ready to sell, visit U.S. Coins and Jewelry.

U.S. Coins and Jewelry has been my go to for buying and selling coins, silver and gold for years. My most recent experience was quick and easy. The staff are friendly and helpful. They really take the fear and uncertainty out of investing in precious metals and coins, and their exchange fees are very reasonable.
- Stephen Peterson
They are the best at helping you build a rare coin collection, bullion sales, & jewelry. I always recommend my friends & family go there. I'm a long time customer from 2011 to date. They have access to some of the finest rare coins out there.

I walked into this place for the first time and was wonderfully greeted by some very friendly associates. This shop is a treat and seeing all the great things it had to offer was amazing. From comic books to coins to even art and watches this shop has it all. I will most definitely be coming back and they offer great deals on buy backs. What a time to be invested in precious metals!
- Muhammad Hamdan
They were very professional, personable and efficient. They trusted - without seeing the actual paper - the quote I received elsewhere for a Rolex watch. They didn't meet it - THEY BEAT IT! Very nice, safe place to do business.

Before going to U.S. Coins, I went to another location much closer to me and the price they gave me did not seem right. So I went to U.S. Coins and they more than double the buy. After speaking to the person I dealt with I decided to only sell my deceased wife's necklace and they still gave me much more than I would have gotten from the other dealer. U.S. Coins were polite and very easy to deal with.
- Tommy Clements
