If you have a diamond ring that you would like to sell in San Diego, the best bet is to gather all the paperwork you have on your diamond first.
Many diamonds are graded by labratories such as GIA labs. They provide a certificate for the diamond which indicates the Color, Clarity, Cut and Carat weight of the diamond.
With this information the guesswork is taken out of trying to find out what characteristics your diamond has, as GIA certificates are very accurate. There are other labratories such as EGL which also grade diamonds but most diamond buyers in San Diego perfer GIA and consider GIA grades higher than EGL diamond grades. For example, if a GIA certificate indicates the color of your diamond is an F color and an EGL certificates indicates the color of your diamond is an F color, a diamond buyer may consider your EGL certified diamond as a G color instead of an F color (which lowers its value).
If you have no grading for your diamond, you can get it certified by GIA labs.
If you have no certificate, then you can gather any receipts, appraisals or documents that you can that give description and pricing on your diamonds. As a general rule, appraisals are priced very high for insurance replacement value and are not looked at as reliable at all by most diamond buyers in San Diego which is more of a reason to bring in your GIA certificate if you have one. At a minimum these appraisals and other certificates can help provide the cut, clarity, color and carat weight of your diamond for the diamond buyer so you can get more money for your diamonds, although these descriptions are not wholly accurate.
If all else fails and you have no papers whatsoever for your diamond, then depending who you want to sell it to there can be a huge difference in price offers you get. Most places will give you a low offer and not even ask what kind of diamond it is. A good diamond buyer in San Diego that offers you cash for diamonds in San Diego would know how to approximately estimate your diamond’s cut, clarity, color and carat weight and a more honest cash for diamonds dealer in San Diego will offer you more cash for your diamonds as a result.
