Diamonds are valuable, but the exact worth of your diamond depends on a number of different factors. Each diamond is unique, and each has its own specific qualities that establish the diamond price when you sell diamonds for cash. There are even more factors that establish value when you sell diamond rings.
At Precious Elements, our team of experienced buyers are well trained on how to properly appraise diamond rings, jewelry, and more. Our valuation and appraisal process allows us to analyze your item and ensure that it is authentic, along with identifying the particular features that impact the final value and diamond price we will offer.
The main characteristics we look at to determine how much your diamond is worth are carat, color, clarity, and cut (also known as the “4Cs” in the diamond buying and selling industry).
Whereas "karat" is used to measure the purity of a precious metal such as gold or silver, "carat" is a measurement of how much a diamond weighs. One carat equals 0.200 grams, or 200 milligrams, and is subdivided into 100 "points" (you may hear some diamond buyers or sellers refer to diamond weight by points instead of carats). So, a 1.00 carat/100-point diamond weighs 200 milligrams, a 2.00 carat/200-point diamond weighs 400 milligrams, and so forth.
Diamond carat weights are measured using highly accurate and calibrated digital scales. Because larger diamonds are more valuable and rarer, higher carat weight usually means a higher price. However, two diamonds of equal carat weight can have different market prices depending on other factors.
Aesthetic appearance is an important consideration for valuation. One factor that impacts the appearance is its color. Diamonds come in a variety of colors, but in white (the most commonly bought and sold) quality is determined by the lack of color.
The purest and most structurally perfect diamonds have no discernible hue, like a drop of pure water. The color-grading scale ranges from D (colorless) through Z (light color). Fancy colored ones, such as pink, blue, and yellow, are graded on a separate color scale.
Among white diamonds, there are five groupings:
Compared to white diamonds, fancy colored diamonds with medium to dark tones and moderate saturations are extremely rare. No matter what color diamond you are selling, subtle color distinctions (some even invisible to the untrained eye) can make a big difference in diamond quality and price. Precious Elements knows how to provide an accurate appraisal that considers the impact even very slight color differences can have on the value of your diamond. Be aware, fluorescence can affect a diamond’s value in ways you may not realize.
The other primary aesthetic factor is diamond clarity, which refers to the absence of blemishes (external characteristics) and inclusions (internal characteristics). Although no diamond is perfectly pure, the closer it comes to being “flawless,” the better its clarity and the more valuable it is.
Diamond appraisers use 10x magnification to observe internal and external characteristics; the more blemishes and inclusions that are observed under 10x magnification, the lower the clarity grade. The GIA Diamond Clarity Scale (the industry-standard for assessing clarity) has 6 categories for a total of 11 specific grades:
Subtle differences in clarity can have a big impact on a diamond’s price, which is why Precious Elements uses state-of-the-art magnification technology to guarantee an accurate clarity appraisal so you can be confident that you are getting top dollar for your valuables.
Have you ever wondered why diamonds sparkle? The answer lies in precise artistry and workmanship that determines how it interacts with light. There are many factors that influence how it creates desirable visual effects, including depth, crown height, pavilion angle, crown angle, girdle thickness, and even the quality of polish.
Cuts are graded between Excellent and Poor based on these facets, as well as by studying the visual effects created by the diamond including white light reflected (brightness), the scattering of white light into different colors (fire), and the amount and pattern of sparkle it produces (scintillation).
It is important to note that “cut” is different than “shape.” The shape of a diamond describes its outline or figure, while cut refers to its symmetry, dimensions, and reflective qualities. Although cut is more important in determining price, its shape may also impact value. The main shapes are:
With so many "cash for diamond" websites, competitors, and less-than-reputable diamond buyers where you can sell diamonds, rings, and more, how do you know which in-person or online diamond buyers you can trust to provide you with a fair price to sell diamond rings, jewelry, or loose diamonds? When you sell your diamonds, it should not be difficult or time-consuming, and you should feel confident that you are getting the most cash when you sell your diamonds. Fortunately, that is why Precious Elements exists: to simplify the selling process and make sure you get every penny your rings, jewelry, or other valuables are worth.
There are three very important reasons why Precious Elements is able to pay more for valuables than anyone else:
As a family-run business, we believe in treating every customer with absolute respect, honesty, and integrity, which means we will not offer you a penny less than your valuables are absolutely worth. We don’t believe in “ill-got” gains by taking advantage of customers or paying them less than their valuables are worth. Those are just good old-fashioned family values, and they are what makes Precious Elements different than other buyers.
At Precious Elements, we refurbish and resale jewelry and loose diamonds ourselves, so we are able to offer top dollar because we don’t incur any additional costs to reclaim our investment. This is also why Precious Elements does not charge administrative fees, appraisal fees, or any other hidden charges.
As outlined above, there are four primary factors used to determine value (the 4Cs) when you sell your diamonds, but within each aspect there are subtle differences that can have a big impact on its worth. By selling to less experienced diamond buyers, you run the risk of selling yourself short if the appraiser mistakenly classifies your item as VS1 rather than a VVS2, for example, or as K-colored instead of I-colored. Our team of experts are well trained to make accurate valuations, so you can have confidence that you are getting a fair, accurate price for your valuables, nothing less.
