Diamonds Are a Girl’s Best Friend!
If you think you can’t afford the luxury of diamonds in this downtrodden economy, you may want to think again. Diamonds are an investment, not just an expense. Classic, timeless, and monetarily stable.
Gold, silver, and other precious metals as well as precious and semi-precious stones have always held value. They have always been sought after and coveted and likely always will be.
According to the late Miss Marilyn Monroe (and many others), diamonds are a girl’s best friend. While I am sure that she loved the glittering and bold jewelry that she was wearing, it wasn’t the actual jewelry that she was talking about.
The lyric refers to the idea that if a girl has a large stock of diamonds, she can always fall back on it should she need it. It also implies that she can manage her finances without having to struggle during times of need.
Want a top-price offer? Know the value.
Before you sell your diamond jewelry, make sure that you thoroughly research the pieces that you have. One of the most important factors that you should consider is the authenticity of the certificate that was granted by the Gemological Institute of America (GIA). If you don’t have the necessary documents, you might want to get an appraisal in writing, especially if it is a high-value piece.
A professional can also give an estimate on the weight and quality of the metal setting that the diamond was made from. This is very important information as it can help you determine the exact cut and clarity of the diamond.
Before you sell your diamond jewelry, make sure that you thoroughly research the pieces that you have. In order to get an accurate estimate, you should contact a retailer. They will typically give you a retail sales figure that is similar to what you would pay in a full-price store. Keep in mind that the retail value is NOT what a pawn shop will offer. Pawn shops sell for a fraction of the retail value. That means the offer, while based on market value and fair, will be far below retail.
If you have diamonds or other jewelry to sell or pawn, we would love to take a look and make you an offer. We have two convenient locations in Southwest Florida.
