How to Sell Diamonds and Diamond Jewelry

You may have wanted to sell your pre-owned jewelry and diamonds for a while now. Many people put off the sale because they don't feel like dealing with the hassle, or because they simply don't know how to sell their diamond jewelry. You don't have to wait any longer to sell your jewelry! It's actually all very easy when you pick Greenbrier Pawn as your potential buyer.


Clean Out Your Jewelry Box

Because we buy all different types of diamond jewelry, you can get more money and get rid of all of your unwanted jewelry quickly and easily. Go through your jewelry box and pick out all of the diamond jewelry that you're interested in selling. If you have any loose diamonds, you can bring them, too. We'll buy them all at one time.


Diamond jewelry isn't the only jewelry that we buy, either, so there might be other items in your jewelry box that we'll buy! In addition to diamond jewelry, we buy gold jewelry, precious metals, and more.

We will give you an individual quote for each item you bring in! There's no obligation, and you can pick and choose which jewelry you want to sell after you get your offer.


Visit Greenbrier Pawn

If you want to get immediate payment and work with the best diamond buyers in Hampton Roads, come visit us at Greenbrier Pawn. You can find us in Greenbrier Station, right here in Chesapeake.

You also have the option to visit our sister store, Hilltop Pawn in Virginia Beach. We pay the highest prices for diamond jewelry at both locations!


Sell Your Jewelry Quickly

Once you visit our Chesapeake pawn shop, our customer service professionals will guide you through the process of selling your diamond jewelry. You don't really have to do anything. Just bring your jewelry and diamonds, and let one of our staff take a look at each item. They'll carefully handle and assess any and all diamonds and diamond jewelry that you bring in.


If you find our offer attractive, just let us know you're interested in selling, and the rest takes mere minutes. Since the valuation has already been done, all that's left for us to do is jot down some information from your government-issued ID, count out your payment in cash, and send you on your way. Many of our customers are pleasantly surprised by just how fast and easy everything is. After all, it's our goal to make selling diamond jewelry an easy and lucrative experience for you.


How Much Can I Get for My Diamond?

Many of our customers are very curious about the appraisal process for fine jewelry and diamonds. When you're selling to an experienced jewelry buyer, the entire process is fast and accurate, and you never have to worry about not being paid what you deserve for your diamond. Of course, because there are so many different variances in diamond jewelry, offers vary.


What is the Value of a Diamond?

The value of a diamond varies a lot from stone to stone. Even if two diamonds look very similar to the naked eye, they might be worth very different amounts of money. This is why you should bring your diamond to us; we'll be able to determine its value, and we'll offer you a good deal if you visit our pawn and retail shop.


The first thing we'll look at is whether or not your diamond is a real, natural diamond. Natural diamonds are worth more than lab-grown diamonds, although jewelry featuring lab-grown diamonds can still be valuable.


Next, we'll look at the cut of your diamond. We buy all of these different cuts and more:

  • Round cut diamond

  • Princess cut diamond

  • Cushion cut diamond

  • Emerald diamond

  • Marquise diamond

  • Oval diamond

  • Radiant cut diamond

  • Asscher cut diamond

The value of a diamond is heavily impacted by its cut. Some diamonds cost more to make due to more waste and more time being put into the cut. Round diamonds are the most expensive diamonds out there, while emerald cut diamonds cost less, when all other factors are the same. This is because there is a lot more waste involved when a diamond cutter cuts a round diamond. All cuts of diamonds are valuable here, but we'll take a look at your diamond's cut as part of the valuation process.


A stone's color is something else we look at during the valuation process. Diamonds come in many colors, and we're always looking to buy pink diamonds, black diamonds, and more. If it's a clear diamond, just how colorless it is impacts its value. A clear diamond is graded on a scale from D to Z, with D being the most colorless (and most valuable), and Z being more yellow in color. If you don't know your diamond's color on this scale, don't worry! Our in-house diamond experts will check while determining your diamond's market value. We also look at clarity; basically, this refers to whether or not your diamond is nearly perfect or if it has some imperfections on the inside or outside.


Of course, carat weight impacts diamond resale price. When all other things considered are equal, a reputable diamond buyer will naturally pay more for a bigger diamond. However, even smaller diamonds (including those less than one carat) can still be surprisingly valuable, particularly if they're high-quality diamonds.


Any time that you bring in loose diamonds or diamond jewelry, these are the primary things we'll look at. No matter the specifics of your particular diamond, you can get a higher price at Greenbrier Pawn.


How Much is My Diamond Jewelry Worth?

As pretty much any diamond specialist will tell you, the biggest part of the resale value of your piece of jewelry is often the diamond itself. Simply put, in most cases, you'll get the most money for jewelry that features a large, high-quality diamond.


However, other things affect how much your local jewelry store and pawn shop can offer for your diamond jewelry, too. If it's a designer piece, or if it's a rare antique piece of jewelry, we'll offer you very competitive prices. If it's made from high-purity gold or platinum, it may be worth more than a comparable piece of jewelry made from sterling silver. We know about the pieces that have the highest resale value, and we'll make you an offer accordingly.

Visit us today to find out the market price for your piece of diamond jewelry today!


Best Place to Sell Diamond Jewelry

Selling to even the best online diamond buyers can be risky. There's the possibility that your valuable diamond could be lost in the mail, for example, which could lead to you taking a big loss. There's also a wait to get paid; in many cases, these buyers will assess your diamond once they've received it, then send you payment afterward. If you don't mind waiting a little while to get paid, this isn't a big deal. If the whole reason why you're selling your diamond jewelry is because you need money right now, selling this way might not be the best option for you.


For many, a pawn shop is the best place to sell diamond jewelry. Most pawn shops are interested in buying both certified loose diamonds and all types of diamond jewelry, from diamond engagement rings to pretty diamond earrings. The right pawn shop will make the transaction fast and easy for you, and they'll give you the best price.


Although there are different ways to get a fair price for your diamond jewelry, we think you'll enjoy great service and a good experience if you sell your diamond jewelry to a pawn shop!
