The value of a diamond ring is based on the current diamond market, and on the cut, color, clarity, and carat weight of your diamond. As an example, one of our members brought us a 2 ½ carat diamond ring that was cut European, or Miner, style. Other jewelers had already told her that the European cut made it a less valuable ring than others of similar weight, but we recut the stone so that she could sell it for 5 times more! We offer our members the service of authenticating the value of the ring, and in addition we will help them price it and market it. We invite you to register for one of our free appraisal sessions during Member Days, or sign up for our workshops on assessing, re-using, or repairing one of your jewelry treasures.
