How much is my diamond worth?

When a person begins the process of selling diamonds, a diamond ring, or any diamond piece, one of the first things they wonder is “How much is my diamond worth?” This can be a tricky question to answer because no two diamonds are alike, nor are two pieces of diamond jewelry alike. Just as cars range in value depending on their year, make, model, condition and mileage, diamonds vary in value depending on their cut, color, clarity, and carat weight – often referred to as the “4 C’s”.

Jewelers tend to be one of the most looked to, and trusted professionals by individuals.
