Diamonds USA appraisals are performed by GIA (Gem Institute of America) appraisers who have been thoroughly trained in the appraisal process and certified. This ensures our customers receive an accurate assessment of the value of their stones for sale and they are compensated accordingly.
It’s important for sellers to keep in mind that the price originally paid for jewelry when it was purchased will be considerably higher than its actual worth. This is because the original retailer’s price includes a hefty markup for beyond the value of the stone and it’s precious metal settings. Retail prices also account for marketing, branding, packaging, store overhead and of course: profit. Companies like Zales or Kay Jeweler’s and other common mall retail outlets often mark their merchandise up 6X to 10X the actual value of the material!
Appraisals for insurance purposes are likewise inflated because the higher the value of the piece they are insuring, the higher the premium the insurer (you) will be forced to pay. Insurance appraisals are not the same as actual appraisals of the stone.
NOTE: Once the diamonds in a piece of jewelry are appraised, we also assay the settings, determine the value of the gold, silver or platinum based upon weight, purity and current market price, and include this amount in the offer we send you.
In addition to technical factors, the cut of your stones will affect its value. As time passes, certain cuts become more popular with buyers and are therefore somewhat more valuable while others decline slightly in terms of buyer demand. This waxes and wanes based on market trends.
