If you have a pair of diamond earrings to sell, you must consider what type of earrings they are to determine the value. The most valuable earrings will be a pair of larger round stud earrings with just one diamond on each ear. Other shapes like princess cut, pear, emerald cut, and oval would be about 25% to 50% lower in value.
The price will be determined based on the carat weight and quality of each diamond. I will determine this information by inspecting the stones, but if you can call or text me with information about your diamond stud earrings, I can come up with a ballpark estimate before we meet. If your diamond earrings are hoops, or dangle drop style, in general, they will be worth considerably less than single diamond studs. This is because a group of small diamonds has a dramatically lower wholesale value then a pair of large single diamonds.
However, if your diamond hoops, or dangle earrings are spectacular, meaning large, and full of high grade diamonds, they can still be worth a lot of money!
Also, if your diamond earrings are a top designer like Tiffany & Co., or Cartier they will have a much higher premium. Antique platinum filigree design dangle earrings will also command more money.
The best choice would be to find a local Diamond buyer. Some web-based Cash for Diamond companies have been exposed as paying as little as 5% of the actual diamond's value. Plus you have to send your jewelry away without knowing what they will pay and if they are being honest.
When you sell Diamond locally, you can request that the buyer weighs your items in front of you, and you can get his offer without being required to sell.
By following this simple guide, you can be sure you will receive a fair price for all diamond jewelry!
