How Do I Sell My Loose Diamonds?

What do we know about diamonds? Diamonds were made millions of years ago under the earth’s surface. They are mined, manufactured, and made into different shapes and sizes and mostly used as jewelry.

“Diamonds are a woman’s best friend”, this advertisement did manage to increase the sales of diamonds amongst the population, but people still didn't seem to know any important details about the diamonds they own.

We know that diamonds come in different shapes and may differ in their color and quality. But we still don't completely understand it. We think that the highest color and highest clarity diamonds are the best and will blindly throw our money to get those, where that is not the case. There is a lot more to consider when determining the true value of the diamond.

When we decide to sell diamond jewelry, we believe that it carries a high value without even knowing the details. Diamonds are very expensive and can cost you a fortune when you purchase them but will get you nothing when you try selling a diamond. To this day people tend to purchase diamond jewelry believing diamonds are investment and, in the future, they can sell it for a higher price. Which is untrue.
