You may wish to sell your diamond rings and jewelry for a variety of reasons: in order to raise cash, to upgrade your jewelry collection or to simply let go of jewelry that they no longer wear. There are lots of options to sell your unwanted diamond jewellery nowadays such as pawnbrokers to jewelers to online diamond ring buyers. But how can you get the best possible price for your diamond?

When selling diamond jewelry  you will not only do you want the highest possible price you can get. But you will also want to consider how to sell diamond rings securely and how long the process will take.  To further understand your options we will take a closer look at how each option compares:


If you have ever tried to sell diamonds or diamond jewelry to a pawnbroker or a local jeweller, you know how low the offers can sometimes be. The reason pawn shops and jewelers offer so little is that they have to pay for the storefront and also their employees.  Additionally, pawnbrokers can sometimes lack the diamond knowledge and expertise to offer strongly on diamond items. Unable to accurately price diamonds results in lower offers, as pawnbrokers do not want to risk making a loss.   I know this as I used to work for pawnbrokers and have seen this firsthand I’m not saying they are all the same as some of they do have qualified and knowledgeable staff but alot don’t.

It is also worth pointing out that not all jewelry stores will be interested in your  diamond item.  It depends entirely on their customer base and if it’s something they can put in their window to sell.

If you are looking for a quicker way to sell diamond rings, jewelry or loose diamonds for the best price then you should consider selling diamonds online.


Ebay might seem like a great option but it has its drawbacks.  Firstly with so many sellers your piece of jewellery can sometimes get lost in the thousands upon thousands of other pieces for sale on eBay. In fact the majority of purchases are made by diamond dealers and jewellers looking for a profitwhich can put you at a disadvantage when selling.

Without any diamond knowledge or the help of a diamond expert, you won’t be able to know if you are pricing your item correctly or selling it too cheaply.

Second, your jewellery won’t sell as quickly, and you sometimes have to wait longer for money that you need. This can take weeks, months or may not even sell because many buyers like to be able to see jewelry in person before buying.There is also a trust issue to be considered when dealing with the public instead of professionals.  Receiving the payment safely and on time depends on the seller. This makes looking where to sell diamond ring challenging and online diamond expert options an attractive alternative.

Ebay  is not a free service and you have to pay a listing fee and sale fee. Be sure you know the final amount that will be due to you should your diamond ring sell.


Selling your ring privately is another options it may be difficult to sell diamond wedding ring, jewelry and loose diamonds direct to members of the public due to the stigma attached to a secondhand ring.  A lot of buyers want to purchase a brand new ring especially if it’s an engagement ring. fulfills that role for you, eliminating any questions from the buyer.
