Valuing Your Diamonds
Our highly trained specialists consider many factors when valuing your diamonds to ensure we provide you with the most accurate and up to date valuation. The most important factors are the ‘four cs’ and certification:
Carat is the unit of measurement for the weight of diamonds. Generally, a diamond’s value increases in line with the carat weight however, diamonds with equal carat weight can differ in value depending on other valuation factors.
The cut is often thought of as the diamond’s shape (oval, pear, round etc.) however, it is also about how well the diamond has been cut and finished. The proportions, depth, symmetry and polish will all impact the aesthetic appearance and value of the stone.
Clarity is the assessment of the inclusions (internal flaws) and blemishes (external imperfections) of your diamond. A gemstone with no visible inclusions or blemishes is graded as ‘flawless’ and therefore likely to be of higher value.
Diamonds come in many different colours ranging from pink to blue however, the most common are colourless. Colourless diamonds are graded on their lack of colour and any yellow, brown or grey tints can impact value.
A laboratory certificate from institutions such as GIA, HRD, Anchorcert and IGI all help maximise the value of your diamonds.
Looking After Your Diamonds
If you use our courier service to have your diamond(s) collected from your home or you send your items to us, they will be insured up to £10,000 during transportation.
If your diamond(s) is of high value and you use our staff collection service, your items will also be insured up to £100,000 during transportation.
