While a diamond may be forever, many people decide at some point to part with their diamond jewelry. Many women sell pieces of jewelry after the break-up of a marriage or relationship because they carry too many unwanted memories. For a number of people, selling jewelry, particularly diamonds, is an economic decision. They can use the money more than they can use a diamond ring that just sits in a jewelry box or safe.
Don’t Rush Into Anything
Selling your diamonds is not something you should rush through or take lightly. Remember that you’re parting with something valuable. Take the time to do your research and make sure that you get a fair price for them.
There are too many people out there who can take advantage of people who don’t know the value of what they have. Some jewelry buyers don’t have the training and expertise to accurately appraise diamonds.
Take These Important Steps When Selling Your Diamond Jewelry
- Before you make any decision about selling your diamonds or other jewelry, take them to at least one certified appraiser. This can help you decide if the sentimental value is greater than the monetary value. Remember — never leave your diamonds for appraisal with anyone other than a trusted diamond dealer like Twery’s.
- Determine the price you’re willing to accept for a piece of jewelry based on the appraisal. If you’re selling it publicly, such as on an online auction site like eBay, you’ll need to set your price.
- Explore your selling options. The key is to choose someone who will give you what your diamonds are worth and whom you can trust. Do you want to risk dealing with someone you don’t know?
- Give yourself time to think about your decision before you sell — particularly if it’s a piece of jewelry that holds significant meaning. Make sure that you’re emotionally ready to part with it. If it’s a family heirloom, you may want to check with other family members to see if anyone else would like it.
