How to Get the Most for Your Diamond Jewellery

If you’re looking for extra cash or simply ready to sell your diamonds, you’ll no doubt want to get the best deal. The first step in selling wholesale diamonds in Queensland (or any other place) is to understand what you have.

Diamonds are valued with a grading system and the grading standards tend to vary. A buyer usually bases his or her judgment on your grade of your gem. So you do need to guess what the grades will be to make sure get the best possible offers.

Documentation

If you have documentation that came with your piece such as a lab grading report, be sure to take this along with you. However, be prepared for debate; while the papers may say the diamond is a D in colour, several experts may see it as an F. Therefore, you may have an F grade diamond.

There are those documents that are more credible than others and will help ensure you get the best offer. A lab grading report from a reputable institute will be highly considered. What’s more, the credibility of the appraisal certificate will depend on where it comes from. Seller-issued appraisals tend to be inflated. But an independent appraisal from an outside expert will likely to be highly considered.

Here are a few more tips for selling your diamonds for the best price.

  • Set a realistic asking price. One of the best ways to accurately price your piece is to have it professionally appraised. This will make sure that the asking price is fair and offers you concrete evidence of the true worth of your diamond jewellery. It will be much easier to sell your jeweller if you know how much it’s worth.
  • Get the jewellery cleaned before selling it. Like any other piece of jewellery, your diamond item will look its best when presented in the most favourable light and is properly cleaned.

Also, look at completed listings to see what they looked like.
