What You Need To Know Before Selling Your Diamonds

Posted on Leave a commentPosted in Buyers of New York, Diamonds

Are you in a rush to get rid of those old diamond earrings? What about that diamond necklace and bracelet? Before you jump right into selling, you should be educated on exactly what you’re selling. Some things you need to know is the 4 C’s, who you’re selling to, GIA report, etc. 

  1. The 4 C’s

  If you don’t know what the 4 C’s are, it stands for carat, cut, clarity and color. Carats are used for measuring the weight of stones, gems, etc. The larger the carat size, the more costly the weight will be. The clearer your diamond is ( D color) , the more money you can make off of it when you sell it. A SI1 clarity diamond is more of a desirable diamond. The cut size of your diamonds also affects the amount the diamond is worth. For example, a rounder cut will be more expensive than a emerald or princess cut.


2. Know who you’re selling to

 It is incredibly important to know who you are selling your precious gems to, otherwise you will get ripped off of your money. Not all diamond buyers are reliable. Local pawn shops may seem easy and the way to go, but it’s not always the smartest choice. In fact, you’ll lose more money than gain. You should always do research on the buyers you’re selling to. Check their websites, customer reviews, etc. 

3. GIA Report

It is advisable to sell your diamonds to someone who has a GIA certificate. GIA stands for Gemological Institute of America. Being certified means to evaluate diamond quality, the 4 C’s and the diamond grading system.

These are the key components you need to have down packed before selling your diamonds. If you follow these steps then you are on the road to success in getting back that cash you are justified to.

This one of a kind watch – only 42 made – took 2 years to make with improvements such as the rotor being completely manufactured in 21 carat gold and the original backing being replaced with a transparent sapphire backing.

Posted on Leave a commentPosted in Diamonds

Your diamond engagement ring is absolutely gorgeous. The ring might have barely any inclusions or color to it and it glosses all over. Because of how you got this ring, it may not make it easy to dispose of either. But if you plan to leave your ex in the past (especially one that was so close to being your life mate), then you need to get rid of the very thing that probably connects you to that person the most. Plus, how do you think a possible future boo would feel about you still holding onto that ring? And you definitely won’t pass the ring down to one of your children or to a family member.

Serena Williams is considered by many one of – if not the best – professional tennis players in the world. In 1999, she won her first major championship (“Serena Williams Biography”), and she has won 39 Grand Slam titles (Cerini, 2017). Her sister, Venus Williams, is also an excellent professional tennis player, and in 2017 Serena beat Venus at the Australian Open (“Serena Williams Bio”). Late 2017, Williams gave birth to her daughter Alexis Olympia Ohanian Jr. and married Ohanian Jr.’s father, Reddit co-founder Alexis Ohanian in November (Dowd, Hahn, 2017).

Besides being known for her awesome tennis playing skills, Williams is a lover of Audemars Piguet Watches. Here are some facts about her association with the popular watch brand:

-Williams became a brand ambassador for Audermas in 2014 (Royce-Greensill, 2017). When asked in a 2017 Hong Kong Tatler interview why she decided to work with Audemars Piguet, she stated, “I am inspired by people who take pride in their work and Audemars Piguet’s watchmakers certainly do. We first met at Art Basel in Miami Beach a couple of years ago. I already knew the brand and it was great to be able to discover more of it at the fair, meeting the watchmakers and understanding where they come from, the brand values, and the hard work they put into creating their pieces” (Cerini, 2017).

^ This is Audemars Piguet’s “If” video starring Williams.

-In 2016, Williams attended a beach party in Miami, Florida that was hosted by Audemars Piguet. One of the purposes of the party was to present the Reconstruction of the Universe project by artist Sun Xun. According to Vogue, at the party, Williams claimed that Audemars matched her “athletic-but-dressy tastes,” stating, “If you look at me, I am sporty, but I like to clean up and dress up.” (Remsen, 2016)

-At the 2017 New York Met Gala, Williams was seen at the event with her then-fiancée Alexis Ohanian rocking the Audemars Piguet Diamond Outrage. The watch has 65 carats of diamonds on spikes that are sticking out from the watch, and the watch-face is hidden under one of the spikes. (Royce-Greensill, 2017)

While Rolex watches fall into a luxury category and don’t require much effort on the owner’s part, it’s still a good idea to keep the appearance of your watch clean. By reading this how-to guide you will discover various steps that will help to keep your luxury piece clean.

Step By Step Instructions

  1. In order to begin the process, you should check the crown and make sure it is tightly screwed to the case.
  2. For the second step, you will need a medium-sized bowl and mix ammonia-free soap with lukewarm water.
  3. You should then use your hands to apply the soapy water to your watch.
  4. Use a soft bristle tool brush to clean all surfaces by gently scrubbing.
  5. In order to dry your watch use a soft cotton cloth.

Important Tips & Warning When Cleaning Your Watch

  1. Don’t attempt to polish your watch.
  2. If you see any sign of water or condensation under the crystal, take your watch in for repair immediately.

Finally, to ensure optimal performance of your luxury piece it is important to get your Rolex serviced every 5 years from a certified Rolex dealer. It is also important to wind the watch at least once every 48 hours. If you let your watch “die,” lubricants within the watch can harden, causing damage when the watch is in motion again.

Diamond Prices Expected to Rise in 2018

Posted on Leave a commentPosted in Diamonds

According to diamond industry analyst Paul Zimnisky, we can expect the prices of diamonds to increase this year. The prices for rough diamonds in 2017 went up 2.7%, while polished diamonds went down 3.5%, according to Paul Zimnisky Diamond Analytics.

“Mining companies tend to have leverage on diamond prices, so if their cost to produce the diamond stays the same, but the actual price they’re selling their diamond goes up, that increases their operating margin and it’s good for their business,” says Zimnisky. “If prices are higher it should help all of the mines, assuming they don’t have specific operational setbacks, so that should lead to higher revenue, higher profits and an increase in tax revenue;” this is good new for the mines in the Northwest Territories.

The Gahcho Kue Diamond Mine, located on the Canadian tundra in the Northwest Territories, is one that he expects to see increased revenue because it will be able to access higher quality diamonds deeper into the ground. He says, although they have fewer diamonds, they have a higher quality, which will be worth more.

The reason diamond prices are on the rise is due to the expected global economic growth in 2018; diamond growth is highly correlated to economic growth. The U.S. and China, being the biggest consumers for diamonds in the world, with half the demand coming from the U.S. and 20% from China, is what really will impact the diamond industry.

Average diamond selling price

With the diamond industry being so competitive because of specific brands, Zimnisky says the best thing companies can do to market diamonds and create a general interest is to through generic marketing campaigns. “Branding and marketing is very important with luxury items.”

According to Statista.com, in 1960, the average price for such a diamond stood at some 2,700 U.S. dollars. Since then, the diamond price has increased more than tenfold, to 29,650 U.S. dollars in 2015, about 14% each year.
