Mike Pays Top Dollar for Loose Diamonds
If you have a loose diamond to sell, please contact us with any information that you have about the stone. Most of the time a loose diamond will have a certificate with it giving the carat weight, color, clarity, and cut grade. These details will affect the value of your loose diamond dramatically.
The same size stone in a high quality can easily be worth triple one of a low quality. The most desirable shape of diamond is the classic round brilliant cut. This is the one that looks like a circle. It is timeless, and therefore not susceptible to market trends that other cuts can suffer from.
For instance, the Marquise cut (looks like a football) has become the least popular cut today. But in the 1980’s and 1990’s it was very popular. Because of low demand, your marquise loose diamond will be 30% to 50% less valuable than a round cut of the same weight and quality!
All other shapes of diamonds are grouped together and referred to as fancy cuts. If you have a loose diamond to sell that is another shape such as marquise cut, pear cut, cushion cut, oval cut, emerald cut, radiant cut, heart cut, trillion cut, or other fancy shape, you can expect less demand and therefore a lower return. However, very nice quality fancy cut diamonds are still rather valuable.
