How Much Are My Diamond Items Worth?
The amount you can get for your diamond necklace, engagement ring, or other item depends on various factors. Some of these factors include the materials used, the interests of the buyer, and current diamond market prices. Perhaps the most important factor is the diamond’s quality, scored based on four categories.
These four categories, commonly referred to as “the four C’s,” include:
- Cut: the overall shape/style and faceting of the refined stone
- Color: the hue and richness of the diamond
- Carat: the weight/size of the stone, measured in carats
- Clarity: a measure of flaws in the material (cloudy = flawed, perfectly clear = flawless)
The better your diamonds fare in these categories, the more money you’re likely to be offered for them. Of course, Diamonds USA will buy any quality of diamond, even if they score poorly. Our appraisers are also certified by the Gemological Institute of America (GIA), ensuring that we offer you a fair price.
