The Reality of Appraisal - What is My Diamond Worth?

Diamond Buyers Lexington - Diamond Buyers Lexington - Appraisals for Diamonds and Diamond Jewelry Appraisals

Selling A Diamond, Selling Diamond Jewelry or Selling A Fine Watch can be a bit confusing due to the value place on the item on an appraisal. Due to the nature of an appraisal, please realize that you will not get paid the price as outlined on the appraisal for the following reasons.

Diamond Appraisals, Jewelry Appraisals, and Watch Appraisals are written for your protection in the event of theft, loss, or damage and establish a retail value for your Insurance Company to cover for losses that you may incur. Even though appraisals are a very important document that may help protect you from loss, they can be a bit misleading when determining the actual cash value of your item. What this means is that when you are interested in Selling A Diamond, Selling Estate Jewelry, or Selling A Watch, these items cannot be sold for the appraised amount.

Appraisals are written to account for the Retailers Markup (as much as 3 times cost), manufacturing/labor costs, and the fact that many Insurance Companies only pay 60-80% of the appraised value. In addition, many retail appraisals are written to account for the potential inflation that may occur over several years in the gold, diamond, and jewelry markets.

To Sell A Diamond it is often very helpful if the diamond is GIA certified. This document outlines all the details of the stone so that an accurate value can be established. Although Diamond are typically in the same condition as when they were purchased, it is important to know that fancy shapes of diamonds such as Pear Shape, Princess Cut, Oval, Marquise, Cushion, Emerald Cut, etc. can go in and out of fashion. Although still valuable, the market demand does influence how much you will get paid for fancy shaped diamonds.

Selling Estate Jewelry, on the other hand is different than Selling A Diamond. Since jewelry items are subject to wear and tear and therefore, this wear and tear is typically discounted. Unless a piece of jewelry has significant provenance, or is a signed piece such as Cartier, Graff, Tiffany and Company, etc. we must calculate the value of jewelry as the sum of its parts, for example, the weight of the gold plus the value of the diamond(s).

When you wish to Sell A Watch, many factors influence the price. A watch that includes the original box and all paper documents such as owner's manual, title certificate, warranty card, etc. is typically worth more than the watch alone. The overall condition of the watch is relatively important, however, Diamond Buyers of Lexington has the ability to re-condition most watches to a near-new appearance. How much we have to invest to return the watch to a like-new status reflects on the price we can pay for the watch.

Since there are no government guidelines, state laws, or other rules for appraising jewelry, it is difficult to provide a true cash value of your item based on a retail appraisal. Diamond Buyers of Lexington will pay you the actual value of your diamond, jewelry or watch based on our own strict laboratory evaluation. We are happy to provide you with a value range based on the information you submit and that we are able to gather during a telephone consultation.
