How To Sell Your Jewelry
Where should I sell my Diamonds?
There are 2 ways to sell your Diamonds of 1 carat or larger.
You can sell to the general public like friends and family, via newspaper ads etc.
You can sell to a Miami Diamond and jewelry buyer.
Do my Diamonds need to be mounted?
Diamonds are usually mounted on Rings necklaces, earrings, bracelets, brooches, or any other Fine Jewelry.
Mounted Diamonds and jewelry can be appraised, valued, bought and sold. They don’t need to be un- mounted.
Sometimes the Mountings are signed by prestigious jewelry houses like Cartier, Harry Winston, Tiffany, Van Cleef and Arpels, and in such case increase the value.
How much will I get paid for my Diamonds?
If you sell to the general Public you should get around what you paid.
If you sell within the Jewelry and Diamond Industry you will probably get about 30 to 40 percent of what you paid if you bought it retail, maybe more if you find an experienced Diamond Buyer that has been years in the business.
Typically when you buy a Diamond from a retail establishment, you pay more because there are many people involved before the retail jeweler like cutters, dealers, wholesalers, manufacturers etc. And all of them need to make a profit.
How do I know how much my Diamonds are worth?
The best way to sell your Diamond is to know the current market value via an Appraisal.

Make sure that you tell the appraiser that you intend to sell the Diamond. The appraisers have different values when appraising like Liquidation value and Replacement value.
What Diamonds are more valuable?
