The value of your diamonds are determined by the 4C’s of Diamond Quality by GIA:
Carat – Diamond carat weight is the measurement of how much a diamond weighs. A metric “carat” is defined as 200 milligrams. All else being equal, diamond price increases with diamond carat weight, because larger diamonds are more rare and more desirable.
Clarity – Evaluating diamond clarity involves determining the number, size, relief, nature, and position of imperfections in the diamond, as well as how these affect the overall appearance of the stone. While no diamond is perfectly pure, the closer it comes, the higher its value.
Color – Color evaluation for most diamonds is based on the absence of color. A chemically pure and structurally perfect diamond has no color or hue, and consequently a higher value. GIA’s diamond D-to-Z color-grading scale is the industry’s most widely accepted grading system. The scale begins with the letter D, representing colorless, and continues, with increasing presence of color, to the letter Z.
Cut – The cut is not the shape of the diamond, but is really about how well a diamond’s facets interact with light. The better the cut grade, the higher the value.
Although you may have paid a retail price for your diamond jewelry, when you sell it will be evaluated as used and price will depends on current market conditions.
You need to work with a GIA Certified diamond buyer that knows the current diamond market conditions and has industry resources to get you the highest value for your diamond.
