What types of diamonds do you buy?
We buy all types of certified diamonds (GIA, EGL, AGS, IGI, HRD) and heirloom jewelry, including engagement rings. We also buy high value diamonds and jewelry from sellers who do not have certification.  We can work with a basic appraisal or even just a piece of jewelry itself.  The bottom line is that if you considering selling diamond jewelry, you should contact us.  We offer maximum cash for diamonds and we believe in trust, service, and doing what it takes to make the customer happy.  Contact us to discuss your particular piece.

What is a certified diamond?
Diamonds may be issued a detailed certification report by an accredited independent gemological laboratory such as the Gemological Institute of America (GIA), American Gem Society (AGS), European Gemological Laboratory (EGL) or International Gemological Institute (IGI). These recognized laboratories provide certified diamond quality reports to the jewelry and diamond industry. Unlike diamond appraisals, which do not require any type of education or accrediting, diamond certification laboratories, must adhere to strict grading and reporting requirements issued by each agency.

Do you only buy certified diamonds?
We buy both certified and uncertified diamonds.  If you do not have the paperwork or diamond certification, we can still get you cash for your diamond. However, to ensure that we give you the best diamond purchasing experience and maximum value for your piece, we must personally view the diamond to complete an appraisal.
