Tips About Selling Diamonds in San Diego
We buy certified and non certified diamonds. We buy GIA certified diamonds as well as IGI certified diamonds and EGL certified diamonds. GIA diamonds are generally a tougher standard than EGL (we only buy US EGL certified diamonds not regular or European EGL) or IGI. Get the most money for selling GIA diamond in San Diego.
Diamonds form in the ground over a long period of time with the right pressure and right temperatures and are one of the hardest substances on earth. A diamond ring is difficult to scratch versus other stones in a ring can scratch easily depending on how hard they are. There are also other types of diamonds such as lab created diamonds and there are new technologies now such as in Russia where they take diamond dust and recompose it back into diamonds. These diamonds are illegal in the US and can only be used for display purposes and not sold. There are also artificially enhanced diamonds also known as Yehuda Diamonds (named after a company that markets them heavily). Artificially enhanced diamonds drill microscopic holes into the diamond, take out black spots and “inclusions” (inclusions are dirt and other materials in the ground that are inside the diamond when the diamond forms and they are included as the diamond forms). The diamond is then filled with other items such as epoxy and sold as a Clarity Enhanced diamond. We do not buy clarity enhanced diamonds and GIA does not certify clarity enhanced diamonds. We also don’t buy reconstituted diamonds. Since 2012 or so there are other types of man made diamonds on the market that are thought to be impossible to detect with today’s technology.
If you are buying a diamond we recommend you purchase from a reputable dealer and make sure they disclose if the diamond is a natural diamond, a clarity enhanced diamond or a man made diamond. Sometimes spouses purchase clarity enhanced diamonds for their spouse and don’t disclose that it is clarity enhanced. The clarity enhanced diamond if it is cleaned with ultra-sound, heated or treated can explode or break so if you decide to purchase the lower quality clarity enhanced diamonds for a reduced price make sure your spouse knows it is clarity enhanced or your spouse can be mad at you later.
Make sure you get any paperwork from your diamond dealer when you purchase a diamond and ensure they put on the paperwork everything about the diamond such as its color, clarity, cut, carat weight and any special enhancements or if it is natural or man made. Also ask them if they accept returns. Save all your paperwork when you buy a diamond and if you buy it on a credit card you may have insurance if it is lost or stolen (check with your credit card company).
How to Sell Diamond in San Diego
Now that you know what to look for when buying a diamond in San Diego, here are some tips on how to get the most money for your diamond when selling diamond ring in San Diego.
1. Gather all your paperwork (if any) that will help establish the diamond’s color, clarity, cut and carat weight, any certificates such as GIA certificate (many GIA diamonds are also laser inscribed by GIA helping establish the certificate matches the diamond), any receipts for what you paid and any other paperwork that is not included in the laboratory report such as any special information about the cut of the diamonds, how many facets it has, etc.
2. Bring your diamond in to your local diamond buyers in San Diego and have them evaluate it. Provide as much information as possible with your documents, laboratory reports and receipts to assist San Diego diamond buyers evaluate your diamonds. Some places pay cash for diamonds in San Diego and others pay by check.
3. Be sure to have your diamond evaluated in front of you and keep it in your site at all times.
4. Your diamond dealers in San Diego will give you a cash for diamond offer (whether they pay cash for by check).
5. Decide if the offer is right or if you prefer to shop around some more before you sell your diamond.
6. Consider getting your diamond GIA certified if it is a larger diamond.
7. Dealers sometimes certify diamonds by US EGL laboratories instead of GIA. Usually this is done with diamonds that are not as clean because GIA has a tougher standard than EGL so if you have bought an EGL diamond realize that your Diamond Buyers in San Diego may compensate for the GIA standard to get the correct color and clarity of the diamond ring.
8. If you feel the offer is right and the San Diego diamond buyer you are dealing with is reputable then go ahead and sell your diamond.
Knowing the points above can help you get more value for your diamond. Not all diamond buyers and diamond dealers work the same way. Some don’t check your diamond properly and give you a low offer, others will take into account many factors such as color and clarity. It helps to educate yourself a little bit about your diamond by showing it to a local jeweler that does not buy jewelry from the public so you have an idea of its color and clarity. However, keep in mind that jewelers mark up their jewelry significantly to sell to retail clients but diamond buyers generally want to buy wholesale to make a profit.
9. Finally, not all diamond buyers are the same. As mentioned earlier some try to pay very little for your diamond while others may pay more. In general you if you see a dealer that has a retail jewelry store you may get more for your diamond (although that is not always the case) as some dealers don’t have retail outlets for their diamonds so they would have to sell it for less to other dealers.
10. Finally, the most important factor is your gut feeling and the feelings you get dealing with your San Diego diamond buyers. You may feel they are honest and straight forward or that they are not. Heed your feelings and if you are not sure tell them you will consider their offer after checking out some other places.
