HOW WE VALUE YOUR DIAMOND - SELL DIAMONDS IN CT
Hoping to sell diamonds in CT?
At CT Gold and Silver, one of our gemologists will evaluate your diamond based on 5 main characteristics. These characteristics are CUT, CLARITY, COLOR, CARAT WEIGHT and CERTIFICATES. The CUT of your stone is the most important trait and helps to determine the brilliance of your stone. The CLARITY of your stone is determined by the number of inner flaws. The less flaws, the clearer the stone. The COLOR of your diamond is what determines how much light passes through. Colorless diamonds are worth more, because they allow more light to pass. A diamond’s CARAT WEIGHT is the unit of measure that is used to determine it’s size. Lastly, if a diamond has a certificate or grading report the value of the stone is usually higher.
Diamonds can be cut into various shapes such as Round Diamonds, Princess Diamonds, Emerald Diamonds, Oval Diamonds, Marquise Diamonds, Pear Diamonds and Trillion Diamonds. Diamonds also are rated by a rating system. The rating scale varies, some examples are: F, IF, VVS1 & VVS2, SI1 & SI2, I1, I2 & I3. If your stone has been certified, your certification certificate should show the rating of your diamond as well as other factors. Keep in mind that an appraisal is not a rated certificate. In fact, many appraisals do not accurately reflect the honest value of your gold, silver or diamond jewelry.
