How Much and When does Sell My Diamonds Pay
Sell My Diamonds state, “We are fully insured and have certified gemologists on staff. We promise to appraise your items for their current fair market value. Our customers are often pleasantly surprised by the higher price of our bids when compared to other offers. We want you to become a regular customer. We make offers for your item on the price we would pay another dealer. We will also give you the appraisal value based upon what it would cost you to replace the item at retail.”
One should bear in mind that when selling jewelry, particularly diamonds, it is rare to get the full retail value unless there is something particularly interesting or striking about the diamonds. Bear in mind that one of the purposes of the “Diamonds are Forever” campaign by De Beers, was to reduce the secondary market in diamonds. Hence the price you get on the second hand market is substantially less than for a new diamond.
