Go Green and Get Green by Selling Your Diamond in Tampa?

Diamond mining can be a dirty business. An estimated 125 pounds of carbon is emitted for per 1 carat of diamond discovered. However, there is a solution. Recycled diamonds are an environmentally superior alternative to traditional diamond mining. For the past 60 years, Americans have accounted for 65% to 75% of all diamond jewelry sold, according to the GIA.  Yet, each year, these Americans release several millions of carats back into the market.  
A recycled diamond shines above the rest. Unlike “new ” diamonds, recycled diamonds are already in the marketplace. Recycled diamonds have no carbon footprint. In contrast, a new diamond must be mined, cut, polished and shipped to the US. 

The term recycled diamond refers to a previously owned diamond that has returned to the supply chain. There are many circumstances that might cause someone to sell their old diamond.

Some of the most common reasons to sell your diamond include:

  1. The splitting or liquidating of an estate
  2. Divorce
  3. Termination of an engagement
  4. Or someone just looking to make extra cash
