Professional, Trained Associates
Our associates at North Scottsdale Loan and Gold have gone through rigorous training courses taught by GIA certified experts. For those who don’t know, the GIA (Gemological Institute of America) are the main governing body for diamond grading across the United States. Any new diamond jewelry you buy (like an engagement ring) will typically come with a little card that evaluates the four most important diamond metrics: cut, color, clarity and carat. Let’s talk our evaluation process.
Selling Diamond Jewelry: The Process
So when you decide to come down to our Scottsdale pawn shop, one of our associates will take your diamond jewelry piece and ask some questions. What’s extremely helpful in these circumstances is if you’ve purchased it before from a jewelry store, that you have the certification that came with it. If not, we can evaluate those.
The first thing we’ll do is look at the cut of the diamond. The cut refers to the shape of the diamond, like round brilliant, emerald, princess, etc. Round Brilliant certainly takes the top of this list as the most expensive kind of diamond cut. Any larger kind of diamond setting is most certainly going to be round brilliant as it’s the most desirable.
The next aspect we’ll evaluate is the color of the diamond. Again, for those of us who don’t know, diamonds come in all sorts of colors. Diamonds come from clear, to blues, yellows, browns, anything you can imagine. The one diamond we know and love, however, are the clear ones. Typically when diamond jewelry is evaluated for color, it’s really just looking for how clear it is. This isn’t to be confused with our next metric, Clarity.
Clarity does seem like it would have a lot to do with color as the more clear, the lighter the color. Clarity takes into account a lot of other factors such as inclusions, or surface wear and tear. An inclusion is essentially an inside fracture of the diamond itself, or a spot. Sometimes you can purchase a diamond that has been “filled” by injecting something into the diamond. Clarity also looks for spots of cloudiness in the stone.
Lastly is one of, if not the, most important factors: Carat. The carat of a diamond is essentially how large it is. When you have a diamond that’s in a gold, silver, or platinum setting, however, it can be tough to estimate. Combining both the cut and surface area of the top of the stone we can get incredibly close to the actual carat size.
Combining all four of these metrics, our associate will then make you a cash offer for your diamonds. If your diamonds are set in some other kind of precious metal (gold, silver, platinum) we’ll weigh it separately. For our gold and silver jewelry buying process, just click on either of the gold/silver links. We add these two prices together and come up with a final price, your cash offer price for selling your diamond jewelry. When you accept, we’ll collect a few signatures, take your item from you, and put cold, hard cash in your hand. In Phoenix, Tempe, and Scottsdale, you won’t get more cash for your diamonds than from us.
