Engagement Ring Selling Guide
How do I sell my engagement ring?
Deciding where to sell your engagement ring is a big decision. With everyone advertising that they want your ring, you have to ask yourself three questions. Will I be paid immediately? Am I getting the highest price possible? Will I have to pay a commission fee? The answer to the first two questions at Unique Gold & Diamonds is yes, and no to the third. We will pay you immediately for your engagement ring. We will pay you the highest price that the market will bear for your engagement ring. We never take a commission like auction houses or online sites charge. You will leave our shop with money in your pocket and a smile on your face. We’ll walk you through the appraisal, options and eventual selling of your engagement ring below.
Do I need an appraisal for my engagement ring?
First things first, no, you don’t need an appraisal to sell your engagement ring. Second, let’s investigate what an appraisal actually is. An engagement ring is made up of parts big and small; diamonds, metal, design, craftsmanship, and sometimes other precious stones. An appraisal evaluates each element of the ring and assigns a value to each part and process that was taken to make it. Usually, the most valuable part of the ring is the center diamond. This diamond may or may not have a certification from a diamond laboratory such as GIA or EGL. The certificate helps to add credibility to the diamond and gives a jeweler a better idea of the exact value of your engagement ring. Certified diamonds often sell for higher prices than non-certified diamonds, but it’s important to remember that it’s not necessary to have a certified diamond.
The appraisal, while helpful, is not necessary. Unique Gold & Diamonds has jewelry experts working within the shop that can quickly and accurately valuate your jewelry and make you the highest offer for your engagement ring. Use this to your advantage and let us make you an offer; offers are always free.
What if I want to sell my ring but keep my diamond?
No problem, we will quickly but carefully remove your center diamond from the ring in front of you and make you an offer for the ring alone. Most rings can have another diamond set in the center, so you’ll get a higher price for the ring than just the price of the smaller diamonds and melt value of the metal.
If you’d like, you can work with one of our expert designers to create your own pendant, necklace, or fashion ring to incorporate your diamond into a new piece of jewelry. We give you all the options when it comes to selling your engagement ring because we want you to make the decision that’s right for you. We offer more than just information, we offer you peace of mind, and that is always free.
