They say diamonds are forever, but that doesn’t necessarily mean that you will want to keep your diamond jewellery for that long. When you have diamond jewellery that no longer strikes your fancy, you do have options beyond putting them away in a box and never looking at them again.
Diamonds and other precious stones are valuable, and hiding them away is a shame. Instead, consider selling diamond jewellery or working with a jeweller to have it fashioned into a custom diamond jewellery piece you love!
Selling Diamond Jewellery
The most crucial element of selling diamond jewellery is ensuring that you are getting the best price. Generally speaking, you can sell loose diamonds, diamond jewellery and designer and estate jewellery. Beware! If you are planning to sell diamond jewellery to a wholesale operation, the amount of the markup they need for a profitable sale when they re-sell your jewels will be reflected in the price you are offered for your jewellery.
Any jeweller buying your diamond jewellery should have no problem with you making some comparisons before making your final decision. If you feel pressured to sell, it may be time to take a break from the process.
Custom Diamond Jewellery
Another alternative for jewellery that you can’t part with, for practical or for sentimental reasons, is to work with a jeweller to have the jewellery fashioned into a custom piece. Have the stone from your grandmother’s too-small engagement ring added to a pendant you love, or the ruby from your father’s class ring added to a charm bracelet. An expert consultation with a highly qualified jeweller will be the first step to breathing new life into your old diamond jewellery.
Choose the Right Jeweller
When choosing a jeweller, ask friends and family for recommendations and read online reviews to discover what past clients have to say about their experience. If you feel uncomfortable about your meeting with a jeweller to design a custom engagement ring or highly personalized piece, keep shopping. Your relationship with your jeweller should be built on mutual trust and respect. And it should be just that – a relationship, not just a transaction.
