Things to Keep In Mind
The colour, clarity, cut and carat weight are the most important factors in determining the value of your diamond engagement ring. They can be found on your laboratory certificate and often on jewellers appraisals. However, they are not the only factors that need to be taken into account. The condition of the diamond is important and although diamonds are very hard, this doesn’t mean they can’t get damaged. Engagement rings are subjected to a lot of wear and occasionally get chipped or broken. Any damage will result in the diamond needing to be repaired before it is recycled and this will be reflected in its final value. The proportions of the diamond are very important and reflect on the price of the diamond. For example, a GIA Excellent Cut Grade diamond can carry up to a 30% premium when you come to re-sell. You can learn more about GIA Cut Grade here.
If you have a certificate from the GIA, IGI, or EGL for example, the initial estimate you are given is going to be very closer to the final offer. Labs are independent and are experts at grading diamonds. The GIA, for example, is an industry leading Gemological Laboratory. Tell us the information from the cert and we can get you an accurate valuation.
There are many online buyers in the marketplace and finding the correct buyer sometimes is not all about the initial estimation you are given. Some companies give high initial estimates but then offer low final estimations in an attempt for you to send your ring in to their offices. Choose a buyer such as WP Diamonds who has a worldwide reputation and a highly trained valuation team with many years of experience.
Fluorescence of a Diamond
Another factor to consider is the fluorescence of a diamond. Fluorescence is when a diamond glows when put under an Ultra Violet light. A small percentage of diamonds fluoresce and it is often recorded on a certificate. A diamond with strong or visible fluorescence can reduce the value by up to 25%.
Using a buyer, such as WP Diamonds, who are diamond experts and can assess each diamond’s unique characteristics, will get you the very best price for your diamond engagement ring.
Retain the Rights Over Your Property
Choose a buyer that will respect your rights. If you say you want your ring returned, then the company you choose should respect this right and return the ring within a couple of days. Some companies hold on to the ring in the hopes that you will eventually accept their offer. WP Diamonds respects the right of the customer at all times and you have full control over your property.
If a buyer is serious about purchasing your engagement ring, they should be willing to provide free insurance and free shipping so that they can take a look at the piece and provide an expert valuation. If a company is asking you to cover the costs, think twice about doing business with them. WP Diamonds will only ever do this if you have no idea of the grade of your diamond, making it impossible to insure the diamond for a specific amount.

What We Buy
Round diamonds will retain more value than fancy shaped diamonds. If your diamond has a GIA certificate with Excellent or Very Good cut grade then it could carry up to a 30% premium.
Princess Cut Diamond Engagement Rings are the second most popular shaped diamond. They retain a good second hand value, if you have a certificate then you can send it to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Fancy Shape Diamond Engagement Rings refer to any shape other than round brilliant cuts. Although not as popular as round brilliant, these diamonds can be very pretty and a well proportioned fancy shape can move quickly in the second hand market, therefore holding a good re-sale price.
Shoulder Set Diamond Engagement Rings - the centre stone should hold the majority of the value. A certificate generally only covers this centre diamond. The smaller melee diamonds also hold a small value and this will be included in the final offer.
