Sell Your Radiant Cut Diamond Engagement Ring
Chesapeake VA

If you have a radiant-cut engagement ring that you've decided you want to sell, finding the perfect ring buyer is important. You probably know that your radiant diamond ring is special and valuable. Although not as expensive as round brilliant cut diamonds, radiant cut diamonds are quite valuable. Because they have square or rectangular shapes, much like emerald cut diamonds, they are a popular choice among those who were initially interested in an emerald cut engagement ring. Many people choose radiant cut engagement rings as an alternative to emerald cut rings for one simple reason: they have a lot more brilliance. Radiant cut diamonds have a whopping 70 facets, so these diamond engagement rings sparkle and shine in a way that most don't. If you've decided that you no longer want your ring and are looking for the best place to sell it, Greenbrier Pawn is here to help.

How to Sell Your Radiant Cut Diamond Engagement Ring in Chesapeake

Depending on your personal preferences, you may be interested in selling your diamond engagement ring online. Of course, you can list your ring on a site like eBay, but you may not be as successful with this as you think. It may take time to sell your ring, or you might not find an interested buyer at all. Plus, there are risks of selling online; depending on the site you sell on, you might run into a scammer. When you ship the ring, it could get lost. There are online jewelry buyers that you can send your ring to, but you may not be paid until they appraise your ring. Plus, these buyers often offer lower diamond prices than their customers deserve for their high value jewelry. Even though buying and selling online can be convenient for some things, selling your ring locally is probably a better choice. After all, it's usually faster, there are usually fewer hassles, and you may get paid more, too.


If you'd like to stick to the Hampton Roads area to sell your perfect piece of jewelry, you naturally have a few options. You can visit a regular jewelry store, but they might offer to put your ring on consignment. Although this is something you can consider, it's often not the best way to get rid of your unwanted jewelry. After all, as you can probably imagine, the jewelry store has more of an interest in selling their own inventory than your ring. This means that your ring might not be the first piece they show to a customer who walks in, searching for radiant cut engagement rings. It may take a while before your ring is sold on consignment, and of course, you'll have to give a cut to the jewelry store.


Locally, you can look for a private buyer, and some people are successful with this. Just remember, meeting with a stranger to possibly sell a valuable diamond ring does have its risks. Plus, the average private buyer really doesn't know how much a radiant cut diamond engagement ring is worth, so they might not offer you what you deserve for your ring. It may take days or weeks to find an interested buyer, too, which might be inconvenient if you're hoping to sell your ring as soon as possible.


​Many find that their best option for selling a radiant cut diamond engagement ring locally is by visiting one of the local pawn shops. In particular, Greenbrier Pawn in Chesapeake is a popular choice. Just as you can come to us when you're shopping for nice, fairly priced jewelry for a special occasion, you can bring us unwanted engagement rings or wedding bands. Our full-service location will buy your antique, designer, or custom ring for top dollar.


Greenbrier Pawn Pays Top Dollar for Radiant Cut Engagement Rings

Radiant cut diamonds were first created in 1977. Henry Grossbard was an Austrian native who became a master diamond cutter in New York. He noticed just how popular round diamonds were due to their brilliance, and he wanted to create a square-shaped diamond with a comparable amount of sparkle and shine. After all, round diamonds involve a lot of waste, which is why they are so expensive. He came up with the radiant cut diamond after 30 years of research. He founded RCDC Corp, or Radiant Cut Diamond Corporation, which was the company he used to market this new, patented diamond. Although it wasn't an immediate success, people soon became drawn to the radiant cut diamond. After all, it was a more affordable and accessible option when compared to the more-pricey round cut diamond, and it offered a brilliance that simply isn't found in many other diamond cuts.


​At Greenbrier Pawn, we truly understand the value of the diamond ring, including radiant cut engagement rings. We're always looking to buy these rings, based on their market value. Get the highest price, and enjoy the easiest possible selling experience, when you visit Greenbrier Pawn in Chesapeake, Virginia.


People come to us for radiant cut diamond engagement rings all the time, but we buy and sell all types of other jewelry too. Bring us a men's wedding band, all different gold necklace lengths, designer watches, and even loose diamonds. Our Chesapeake pawn and jewelry store strives to offer the largest selection of designer jewelry, as well as all other sorts of fine jewelry, so we're always looking to make an offer. Also, remember that we're your go-to location any time that you want to buy jewelry. Fine estate jewelry, diamond rings, luxury timepieces, and more are all available for sale here. You can even trade your radiant cut engagement ring for another piece of jewelry that you have your eye on.


How Much Will I Get for My Radiant Cut Engagement Ring?

As experienced jewelers and pawnbrokers, we have a lot of experience with valuing all types of fine jewelry, such as diamond engagement rings. This is true for radiant cut diamond rings, too. You can always count on us to fairly and properly value your diamond jewelry.


Naturally, before we can make you an offer on your radiant cut engagement ring, we need to figure out its resale value. Generally, we resell the radiant cut engagement rings that customers bring us. After all, we pride ourselves on being your local diamond specialist, and people come to us from all over the Hampton Roads area to purchase diamond wedding bands and engagement rings. If your old ring is a ring that we can resell, we'll offer you top dollar for it, based on the value of your ring. After all, we do everything we can to maintain a great inventory for our customers!


Many people don't realize it, but if you have a radiant cut engagement ring that isn't in good shape, you can still sell it. We are the right buyer for you if this is your situation. As your local jewelry store, we know that your ring still has value. For example, the precious value that makes up the ring still has melt value, even if the diamond is missing completely. If your ring needs some repairs, or if a couple of the complementary diamonds are missing but the main radiant cut diamond is still intact, we can often make repairs. In fact, we even offer jewelry repair services for the general public!


When we make an immediate cash offer for previously-owned diamond rings, there are a few things we look at. The value of the gold that makes up the ring matters, and when all else is the same, an 18K gold diamond ring is going to be worth a bit more than a 10K gold diamond ring. The diamond itself is generally what makes up the majority of the value, though. We look at cut (in your case, it would be a radiant cut), as well as color, clarity, and carat weight. Diamonds that are more "clear" are more valuable, and diamonds with a better clarity (which means they have less imperfections or inclusions, some of which can't be seen easily with the naked eye) are more valuable, too. Sometimes, rings from leading bridal jewelry brands and top designers are worth more.


​Even though there are a number of different things that we look at before making an offer on various types of bridal jewelry, we can value your ring in no time. We'll offer you a fair price in just a few minutes, and you can head out the door with cash in your pocket in no time. We know you probably don't want to wait a long time to get as much money as possible for your diamond wedding ring or engagement ring, so we won't keep you waiting any longer than necessary. In fact, not only do we offer a fair cash offer, but we are actually known for offering the fastest way to sell your radiant cut engagement ring.


Can I Get a Pawn Loan on My Radiant Cut Engagement Ring?

​Because you're short on cash, you may be thinking about selling your radiant cut engagement ring, even if you really don't want to. You might remember wearing it on your big day, and it's probably a sentimental piece that relates to your love story. Selling custom wedding rings and engagement rings isn't your only option to get cash, luckily.


As your local jewelers, Greenbrier Pawn is one of the top diamond buyers in the area. We aren't just engagement ring buyers, though; we also offer full pawn shop services, including pawn loans. To borrow the most money with the least hassle -- all while giving yourself the option to get your ring back later -- bring your old engagement ring to us for one of our cash loans.


The way our loans work, the amount that you can borrow is based entirely on the value of the ring that you bring in. The valuing of your ring is very similar to the selling process. We'll look at all of the same things to decide how much your ring is worth. Then, we'll make you a loan offer based on that amount. This helps us protect ourselves, just in case you are unable to repay your loan. We loan to people with all credit scores and situations. In fact, we don't even check into these things. We just need your ring and your ID; that's all that's needed so you can get a loan. Our fees are state-regulated, so you can feel confident borrowing from us, without worrying about predatory lending practices. Our loans are a much better option than a payday loan!

Why is Greenbrier Pawn Shop & Jewelry Different?

Lots of pawn shops buy and sell diamonds and jewelry. However, few really specialize in jewelry like we do here at Greenbrier Pawn Shop. In fact, when you walk into our shop, you will probably notice that resembles a high-end jewelry shop more than it does a traditional pawn shop. Even though we offer all of the same services that other pawn shops offer, many of our customers see us as more of a jewelry store. Once you stop in and check out our selection once, you’re sure to find that we’re your new favorite go-to Jewelry Store.
