Wonder how much you get for your diamond? Use the Diamond Banc™ Diamond Value Calculator to determine your diamond’s worth. The calculator compares the specifications from your diamond to over 100,000 diamonds available on the wholesale market. It shows the estimated retail and wholesale prices, as well as how much you can borrow for or sell your diamond.
Is your diamond worth what you paid?
Consumers sell diamonds back into the retail industry and receive offers significantly less than the original buying price or insurance appraisals. There are steps to every product line, so it is no different for diamonds. When you buy a diamond from a retailer, the cost has already been marked up several times. Diamonds are sold from the cutter to the manufacturer, manufacturer to the wholesaler, and the wholesaler to the retailer. When a diamond is reintroduced into the market, the process must start over because pre-owed diamonds are rarely sought after.
Insurance appraisals assign a diamond’s worth with the idea that one day you may need to make a claim against a lost or stolen diamond. The money from a claim, gets you a comparable replacement for a lost or stolen diamond. This is why appraisals give a greater value to diamonds than pawn shops and lenders.
How Diamond Banc calculates your diamond’s worth
Many factors determine a diamond’s value, like the four C’s: carat weight, color, cut and clarity. However, other value adding factors, such as fluorescence, cut quality, certification and popularity of the diamond’s shape drastically impact the diamond’s worth.
Typical pawn shops and broad-based lenders do not take every value adding factor into consideration when they buy your diamond. The Diamond Banc has many ties in the diamond industry, which allows us to offer the most for your diamond.
Pawn shops use a fixed formula to determine a diamond’s worth, based on carat weight This means you get the same amount for a diamond with excellent cut, color and clarity grades as a same-size diamond of much poorer quality.
