There is a sentimental aspect to diamonds is very different from other funds tangibles such as boats, houses or cars. However, there are times when consumers need to sell their diamonds and, unlike the car market,
there is no well-developed method for consumers to sell their diamonds.

As a consumer, you face some unique challenges when trying to get the best price for your diamond in a safe and comfortable. Your starting point is to know exactly what you sell. It is much easier if the diamond has a grading report from a major laboratory like the GIA or AGS. You have more of a challenge if there is no report of the sorting ceremony.

Once you know the characteristics of your diamond, you can find the current retail price charged by contacting online retailers to see what similar diamonds are selling for in the retail market today. It is unlikely you will be able to receive the retail price at the start for your diamond. Sell ​​your diamond at 80% to 90% of this amount would sell faster. Be realistic about your expectations. The lowest cost online retailers, not the expensive jewelry stores double the price, put the value of your diamond.

Now you know your target price and simply need to solve how to find the right buyer for your diamond. There are several options available to sell your diamond and you must determine which is best for your money and maximize security while minimizing your time and effort.

The auctions like eBay are popular for selling jewelry but there are so many low quality jewelry listed, it's hard for potential buyers to find your diamond quality. You compete with retailers of jewelery which sells the entire affair on eBay so they are experts at writing descriptions (often with exaggerated quality), taking pictures and carrying their impressive items. Even if a bidder find your article, the chances of getting your price target are slim to zero because other retailers are advertising for items with similar descriptions for about half the amount you want. Notice I did not say they are advertising for similar quality, just like descriptions. Search for GIA diamond rings with that note of the reports and see the vast majority of diamond rings have paperwork from sources before that you have never heard of.

However, if you have patience and an estimated retailer, reputable broker to lower your diamond, you have an excellent chance of receiving an excellent price for your diamond without the hassle and safety issues to sell you.
