When selling a diamond ring…
…bracelet, or earrings, cash will be offered based on the resale value of the jewelry. The good news is you can get a lot more for your diamond jewelry now than you could in the past. The higher price of gold and diamonds, coupled with the increased demand for luxury goods in Asia, means that dedicated jewelry buyers who have a global resale network, like Diamond Estate, can get you a much fairer price for your diamond jewelry than ever before.
Unlike selling gold, the market value for diamonds is more subjective and can be impacted not only by size, but clarity for the stone, color grade, maker, and brand. An important thing to take note of is the size of the diamond. Remember that a 1+ carat diamond is going to be worth much more than a .98 carat diamond because a diamond of at least 1 carat is much rarer than a diamond just under 1 carat.
Size isn’t everything though. The most valuable diamonds are those with both high clarity grade (VS-IF) and a high color grade (D-J grade). In other words, you cannot expect much of a cash return when trying to sell an engagement ring with a diamond that has a high color grade, but a low clarity grade.
A confirmed cash offer from a real buyer is the best way to know what your diamond is really worth…
When trying to sell a diamond ring, you may discover that a lot of people are willing to tell you what your diamond is worth, but none of them are interested in actually paying you money for it. Your local jeweler will tell you it’s worth $10,000. Your insurance appraiser will tell you its worth $15,000. Your friend Amy will tell you it’s worth $20,000. But none of these people mentioned are in a position to buy your diamond ring from you, so the information has to be taken in context.
The only way you can really know what your diamond ring is worth is by getting a quote from a real diamond buyer, someone who is prepared to back up what they say by writing you a check or sending you a bank wire for the dollar amount quoted.
You can sell a diamond ring to Diamond Estate with complete confidence and with absolutely no risk whatsoever.

Sell Diamonds – Kotlar Cushion Cut
Kotlar cushion cut diamonds are the signature cut of Harry Kotlar and company, first introduced in 2003. Inspired by the original 19th century cushion cut, or “mine cut,” the basic shape of the Kotlar cushion cut diamond is square with rounded corners. Kotlar re-visioned the classic cut based on an appreciation of the famous Second Star of Africa, a 317.4 carat cushion cut diamond in the British Imperial State Crown.
Today’s Kotlar cushion cut diamonds are a testament to the vision of Harry Kotlar’s grandson David Wiener, whose quest to create a diamond with superior brilliance culminated with the Kotlar cushion cut. Fashioned with a unique pattern of 61 facets, this contemporary take on an old world cut uses a specific formula of crown and pavilion angles to maximize the stone’s fire and brilliance, with a fuller silhouette and distinctly feminine lines.
Kotlar cushion cut diamonds are fashioned with a unique pattern of 61 facets.
The shape features a large crown, an open culet, and the four main facets harness the reflections of the other facets, transmitting the light to the stone’s center, providing the most scintillating fire and brilliance. The company claims the results of their efforts are “the world’s most brilliant cushion cut diamond.”
Kotlar cushion cut diamonds can range in color from D to K, and from Internally Flawless to SI2 in clarity. Each stone also features a tiny laser inscription on the girdle as a mark of authenticity. Though largely found in wedding and engagement rings, Kotlar cushion cut diamonds are also featured in other fine jewelry.
Contact Diamond Estate today to sell your Kotlar cushion cut diamond jewelry.
Crisscut diamonds are the brainchild of Christopher Slowinski, the founder of Christopher Designs. Fascinated with applying modern technology to his traditional diamond jewelry training, Christopher found a way to modify traditional cuts with his Crisscut designs. What makes the Crisscut diamonds unique is their extra triangular facets that ‘crisscross’ the stone.
The original patented Crisscut diamond shape was a unique variation of the emerald cut, in which extra facets ‘crisscross’ the step cuts of the emerald shape. The result is a diamond with 29 more facets than the traditional emerald cut, allowing for more light refraction, with the resulting increase in scintillation, fire, and brilliance. This can also result in a “face up” appearance that can be two grades higher than the diamond’s actual color grade.
Crisscut diamonds are available in Asscher, Cushion, Brilliant, and L’Amour shapes.
Christopher later turned his new technique to other traditional cuts, and Crisscut diamonds are now available in Asscher, Cushion, Brilliant, and his trademarked L’Amour shape. All use the triangular faceting of the original Crisscut design, with the Brilliant Crisscut boasting a remarkable 109 facets. While appearing round, the Brilliant Crisscut stone actually features twelve straight walls and twelve sides, giving the impression of a delicately scalloped border.
The Crisscut method allows for the diamonds to be generally shallower than a traditional cut, so the Crisscut stone will appear larger than a conventionally cut stone of the same carat weight. Crisscut diamonds are also more forgiving in clarity quality, so often a diamond of a lower grade can be used. Even though the Crisscut technique wastes more of the rough diamond, the final cut is much less likely to emphasize inclusions, so lower clarity stones are more likely to appear ‘eye clean’ than those traditionally cut.
At Diamond Estate, we always are interested in talking with people who wish to sell a diamond engagement ring and other fine jewelry from Christopher Designs. Contact us today for a free consultation.
The Royal Asscher Cut takes its name from Joseph Asscher’s original Asscher Cut, which he perfected in 1902. The original Asscher cut, a highly specific type of square emerald cut, has been a staple, copied both well and poorly, since its introduction.
Joseph Asscher’s great grandsons, Edward and Joop Asscher, became fascinated with the idea of enhancing their ancestor’s design in 1999. Using sophisticated computer modeling and simulation, the two consulted with their team of master craftsmen and polishers, and after two years of development, they presented the first Royal Asscher Cut, and were rewarded with a worldwide patent.
The Royal Asscher Cut is perfectly symmetrical, with distinct proportions that must fall within very specific parameters. The cut can only be fashioned from an octahedral shaped rough diamond crystal, with only 5% of the world’s rough diamonds meeting the exacting standards.
The Royal Asscher cut features 74 facets, versus the 56 facets of the traditional Asscher cut.
Once a suitable rough diamond is selected, it is then sawn above the girdle, sacrificing over 15% of the rough stone, but providing for the cut’s exceptionally high crown. This high crown is essential to the finished stone’s ability to disperse color and light. The Royal Asscher Cut’s superior brilliance in comparison to a traditional square-emerald Asscher cut diamond is unmistakable.
Technically, the Royal Asscher Cut is complex, and requires a level of skill fewer than 75 master craftsmen possess. In order to draw out the stone’s fire and scintillation, these experts must polish the diamonds to exact specifications — a proprietary process that can take over three months to learn.
The finished stone features 74 precisely polished facets, as compared to the traditional Asscher’s 56, providing what the company boasts as an “entrancing endless mirrored effect…with a kaleidoscope of color.”
Large carat Royal Asscher cut diamonds are sometimes sold at auction. To learn why clients often choose to sell large diamonds to Diamond Estate versus an auction, contact our diamond buyers today.
The Ashoka cut diamond takes its name from an Indian emperor of the Maurya Dynasty who ruled most of the Indian subcontinent from 269 BC to 232 BC. Once a fierce warrior, Ashoka had a reawakening, coming to believe that the path to enlightenment could only be attained through peace and tranquility. As a result, he encouraged his subjects to practice Buddhism.
When a truly striking 41.37 carat diamond was mined in the Golconda region of Southern India, it was fashioned by an unknown artist into the famous D Flawless diamond and named for the revered leader. The stone would eventually acquire its own mystique, said to “have the ability to banish sorrow and bring joy.”
The story of the original Ashoka diamond fascinated and inspired diamond expert William Goldberg, who painstakingly studied every facet of the ancient stone’s story. He and his team were eventually able to create a modern version inspired by the original Ashoka diamond, and were awarded a United States patent for their efforts.
Ashoka cut diamonds are available only through jewelry stores authorized by William Goldberg.
With a rectangular girdle outline and rounded corners, the Ashoka cut is basically a modified cushion cut, and features 62 facets, giving the diamond the appearance of being larger than it actually is. Only very particular rough diamonds can be fashioned into Ashoka cuts. Because of its elongated shape, rough diamonds need to be extraordinarily long in order to be fashioned in this manner, making less than ten percent of all rough diamonds suitable for this cut.
The resulting finished diamonds are renowned for their brilliance and overall beauty, and are available only through jewelry stores authorized by the William Goldberg Corporation. The quality of Ashoka cut diamonds can vary from D to K and from flawless to SI2, but the quality of the cut makes them sought after and unique.
Although the modern version of the Ashoka cut has been well known for decades, it has enjoyed renewed attention with the engagement of Reese Witherspoon in 2010. Her 4 carat Ashoka diamond mounted on a pavé set diamond and platinum band created a sensation that brought the legendary cut back into the popular imagination.
Because of the rarity of Ashoka cut diamonds (compared to more popular cuts), when selling this diamond you want to be sure to work with a diamond buyer who has a great amount of experience with this diamond — so that you can feel confident in receiving a fair cash offer.
Victorian Cut diamonds might seem to refer to diamonds from the Victorian era, but those diamonds, all cut and faceted by hand, varied greatly from stone to stone in both the size and the shape of the individual facets.
Today’s Victorian Cut diamond is the result of the pioneering work of ABA Diamond’s owner Ari Abaev. While working with an antique emerald cut diamond, he was struck by the stone’s particular brilliance, and set out to discover what made that individual diamond special. The Victorian Cut he developed is based largely on what he learned from his exacting analysis of the old diamond.
Today’s Victorian Cut diamond is the creation of ABA Diamond’s owner Ari Abaev.
Today’s Victorian Cut diamond, which premiered at a Las Vegas trade show in 2002, was heralded as “the victory of art over dimensions.” The classical shape of the contemporary Victorian Cut is octagonal, designed and cut to precise dimensions and ideal proportions. These new stones feature a unique, multi-faceted crown with step cut pavilion and a total of 73 facets.
Table sizes for Victorian Cut diamonds range from 58 to 63 percent, and the total depth range is 60 to 64 percent. The proportionally small table of the multifaceted top crown adds to the stone’s brilliance, but the bottom pavilion is also multifaceted and step cut. The mathematically configured dimensions of the bottom pavilion also add to the increase of the stone’s reflective brilliance.
The combination of the Victorian Cut diamond’s classical proportions, perfect shape, and the precise measurements and angles of the facets results in a stone that naturally appears even larger than its true proportions.

The Tycoon Cut diamond is the brainchild of the two Toros Kejejian cousins, who came to the United States from Lebanon over 30 years ago as their family’s third generation in the jewelry industry. Their highly innovative Tycoon Cut was introduced to the diamond industry in March 2000, at the American Gem Society Conclave in Philadelphia.
Today, the Tycoon Cut is widely acclaimed for its innovation. The design has been awarded four US patents, and the cousins were awarded the prestigious Gemological Institute of America’s League of Honor Award in 2003. The first Tycoon Cut diamond is on permanent display at the GIA’s museum.
The Tycoon Cut’s slogan is “The only diamond with a diamond top”.
The Tycoon Cut is essentially a simple design, featuring nine crown facets and twenty step cut pavilion facets, yet it is available in a number of shapes, including Square, Rectangular, Tapered, Trapezoid, and Cut Cornered. It is the unique faceting on the crown that makes the Tycoon Cut instantly identifiable.
“The only diamond with a diamond top” is the company’s trademarked marketing slogan, and it accurately describes the shape made prominently visible by the facets on the crown. The twenty facets in the step cut pavilion help to highlight the diamond’s color, actually helping the stone present with a higher quality color than it would if otherwise cut. The nine crown facets are also more effective at masking inclusions than a traditional square table, making the diamonds more likely to appear ‘eye clean.’
Though primarily used in diamonds, the Tycoon Cut is also employed in a variety of colored gemstones, including rubies, emeralds, and blue, pink, and yellow sapphires. Every Tycoon Cut diamond of .50 carats or larger carries a laser inscription on its girdle to ensure the stone’s authenticity.

Leo Schachter founded his diamond business over half a century ago, and worked for decades perfecting a faceting design that would increase a diamond’s brightness and beauty. The results of his company’s passion have led to the Leo Diamond, a stone specifically designed and handcrafted for maximum brightness.
Leo diamonds use a unique, patented faceting arrangement. Round brilliant diamonds generally have 57 facets, but the technique used to create Leo diamonds fashions 66 strategically placed facets in the Leo round diamond, and between 61 and 66 facets in the Leo princess cut.
The Leo Diamond’s brilliance can help hide internal flaws that might otherwise be more visible to the naked eye.
The precise placement of these facets is key to the stone’s brilliance. When light hits the facets of a diamond, it is refracted and reflected from one facet to another, and finally dispersed through the top of the stone. The amount of light that meets the eye of the beholder is known as the “return of light”.
In addition to having exceptional “return of light,” the Leo Diamond’s brilliance can also help hide some internal flaws that might otherwise be more visible to the naked eye. This is also true in princess, marquise, and radiant cut diamonds. When a cutting style is more forgiving, inclusions start to blend into their mirrored environment. This allows consumers the option to sacrifice a higher clarity grade and still get a great looking diamond.

I worked with Paula the most and she was great. Very patient, very kind; answered all my many questions. Received agreed upon payment extremely fast, as promised. It is scary to send jewelry in the mail, but everything worked as I was told it would. I would do this again.
Carl is a very straight forward and honest businessman. I sent him some pictures and chatted on the phone with him for a few minutes, and then he offered me a very fair price. I was a little hesitant at first as I am not in the jewelry business and the idea of sending my jewelry across the country via mail was a little worrisome. However, this couldn't have gone more easily - he received the ring and paid me what he said he would the next day. Great experience and great business.
This company was excellent to deal with and very fair on their offer. Paula Dabney took care of my transaction and kept me informed of everything. The money was wired to me within an hour after the received my watch. I highly recommend this company.
After reading many of the reviews about Diamond Estate on the internet, I decided to take the plunge and contact them about a vintage Rolex watch that belonged to my father and had been tucked away for about 40 years. They responded immediately and walked me through a very simple process to evaluate the watch and arrive at a fair price. The entire transaction was very positive, and I am really glad I discovered this company. I would definitely recommend them and will certainly do business with them in the future if I have any other items of value to sell.
Contacted Paula about selling my Rolex watch, and was treated in a very professional manner. She talked me thru the whole process from start to finish; which made this transaction very enjoyable. The estimate I received was higher than two other companies I contacted. Straight forward, no nonsense approach. If you have any doubts about selling your jewelry please give Diamond Estate Jewelry Buyers a call. You will be happy you did.
When I was thinking about selling a piece of jewelry I had, I looked at several different places. I just kept coming back to DEJB. I called, spoke with Paula & she was wonderful to work with. So friendly & knowledgeable. She explained everything to me from the first phone call. She really put my mind at ease. My transaction was quick & easy. Paula & Carl were so easy to work with. I will definitely work with them again. Thank you Paula & Carl for everything!
I reached out to Diamond Estate Jewelry Buyers to sell my husband’s Rolex. Lori was very nice, knowledgeable, & inspired trust. Most importantly to me, there was absolutely no pressure to proceed—I felt very comfortable with the pace of the process. Lori gave me an estimated range of what the watch would be worth, subject to adjustment based on their appraisal once their buyer was able to examine it. She provided all details and the Fed Ex labels for shipping the watch—it was not hard and I was fully confident it would go without a snag. Lori called to let me know as soon as the watch arrived. The next day it was appraised by their buyer and Lori called to let me know the adjusted price. They dealt fairly with me, so I accepted and wire transfer was made same day to my bank account. Nicely done, Lori!
The people at Diamond Estate Jewelry Buyers were professional and courteous and offered a good price for my engagement ring. I wasn’t sure I wanted to ship off my ring so I researched the company as much as I could until I was satisfied. Sure enough, their business with me matched up to the reputation I saw online. I highly recommend them.
We had a 14 carat diamond and were nervous of mailing it out of state. We were reassured from the beginning of the easy process, but we decided to fly out to California to meet the people at Diamond Estate. From the very beginning we were met with professionalism and treated very well. After given a reasonable quote, we decided to get a GIA certificate for the diamond just to be sure what it was. Jackie drove us all over the place to different jewelers to look at it as well as the GIA lab. She spent a whole day making us feel at ease. Jackie took us around fully knowing that we could go with other people’s offers and still chauffeured us to each place. In the end we found exactly what we are looking for with the Help of Carl and Jackie. Great experience for 2 girls from Colorado. I would recommend them to anyone.
I sold a diamond engagement ring and a wedding ring. Paula was exceptional to work with. She answered all of my questions and assuaged any concerns that I had. I know the price I got was fair, as I had a prior gemologist look at the rings, but I was not comfortable dealing with that outfit for reasons other than the price.
I am comfortable with my decision to sell my engagement ring, and I know I got the best offer I could get at this time. I highly recommend Diamond Estate Jewelry Buyers. Thank you, Paula, for all the time you spent with me. You have immense patience and empathy.
I can’t express how much Diamond Estate Jewelry Buyers’ employees will go to bat for you. Over a period of 2 weeks working with them on a piece of jewelry and a watch, I truly felt they understood the way my wife and I felt about those two pieces. I especially want to thank Paula and Jacqueline for going above and beyond to get us the cash to make my wife’s dreams come true. Thanks again to Paula and Jacqueline for a job well done.
I needed to sell a 2 carat diamond and based on the excellent reviews, I decided to contact Diamond Estate Jewelry Buyers. I sent an email with the GIA report details and within 30 minutes I had a response from Paula with an estimated offer. After deciding to move forward, Paula emailed me shipping instructions and a prepaid FedEx label. I shipped my diamond and everything went incredibly smoothly. Paula, the buying consultant with whom I worked, was incredibly responsive and knowledgeable. I am absolutely thrilled with my experience and would recommend Diamond Estate Jewelry Buyers to anyone looking to work with true professionals.
Extremely professional, kind, and intelligent staff. I felt confident selling my diamond ring because Paula and Jackie were honest, sincere, and communicative and made the process easy. I was indecisive because of the sentimental attachment to the ring but they were very patient and understanding. They didn’t just give me the quote, they answered all my questions and helped me to understand the specific reasons for the value of the diamond. I needed the money for medical bills for my daughter and it was nice to deal with people who I felt really work hard at, and care about getting the best price possible for the customer.
Diamond Estate Jewelry offered the best cash price for my watch; $300 more than the local place I talked to. And the wire transfer was very simple and smooth. Recommend them and would use them again
Diamond Estate Jewelry Buyers are good as it gets. Alex is a true professional who understands the importance of attention to detail. I was hesitant at first to sell my Rolex to a business where I would have to ship my valuable time piece in advance of payment, but Alex reassured me of the process and offered excellent communication STEP BY STEP. Carl exceeded my expectations in standing by their initial appraisal and I simply could not be happier with the entire process timeline (48hrs start to finish). If I could give them 6 stars instead of 5 I would.
Absolutely seamless sale of a two tone Rolex Submariner. The buy bid was honored, no changing of bid after receiving the watch. As far as I am concerned this is the only place to sell your jewelry and watches. Paula was super professional and easy to do business with. I was a little apprehensive, but after reading all of the reviews, I felt confident, and so should you.
Wonderful service! Paula made the selling process so easy for me from beginning to end. I live out-of-state, and she walked me through, step-by-step, exactly what to do to work with Diamond Estate to sell my diamonds. The process was effortless on my part! The owner gave me an excellent price. Paula was very professional and a pleasure to work with. I highly recommend working with Diamond Estate.
When deciding to sell a special piece of jewelry, especially when you are sentimentally attached to it, it is very difficult to part with it. Then I realized that I would never wear it and keeping it in a box for years and years was useless. So I “made the call” to Lori after doing a little background reading of Diamond Estate Jewelry Buyers. I was apprehensive about sending jewelry through the mail but it went very well and I was pleasantly surprised. Am I sure I received the best price? I have no way of knowing, but I was happy with what they offered and I am satisfied. I will no doubt use their services again.
Fastest and most honest experience by far. I tried selling my old wedding ring with other jewelry buyers last year but the process was so confusing and extensive I gave up. I found these guys and a few other sites online last weekend and decided to give it another shot. Carl and his team purchased my ring, received my shipment and sent the money (which was the highest and only definitive offer out of anyone) to my account all in less than 4 business days. The communication was thorough, timely, and responsive every step of the way.
While selling an engagement ring is never an emotionally fun experience, it was finally time to give it a new life. Working with Paula made the process so much easier. She is very professional and responsive, and showed a lot of empathy when I got misty-eyed on the phone. While I’ll admit to having been nervous about shipping my engagement ring off based on a few emails, the process went very smoothly. I was provided with an insured shipping label and instructions for packaging. I received a reasonable offer for my ring the day it arrived at their store. The transaction was settled exactly as agreed, and within hours of my giving final word. There is absolutely nothing to be concerned about in dealing with Diamond Estate Jewelry Buyers via the web, and I would gladly use them again.
I appreciated their professionalism and responsiveness to me. I have been deciding if I want to sell my watch. Paula kept in contact, explained the process to me and followed up with me each step of the way. And it was fast! I highly recommend using them if your deciding to sell some of your high end jewelry.
Exceedingly pleased and impressed with this service. I worked with Paula who is professional, personal, and accountable. Everything happened as said from beginning to end, which was hard to believe at first. I re-read reviews even after I boxed up my items because of the anxiety! Paula helped normalize a sentimental event and held my trust throughout the whole process (which was actually very fast and exactly to description). Highly recommended and would use again without hesitation. Thank you Diamond Estate Jewelry Buyers, especially Paula!

We contacted Carl to sell approximately 25 pieces of estate jewelry. He was extremely responsive and followed up the same day. His secretary was fantastic getting us an appointment quickly. Carl spent a long time explaining the pricing, appraisals, value, and process and made us feel very comfortable selling to him. We are extremely pleased with the entire experience and will definitely recommend him to others!
I inherited a vintage Rolex. About 40 years old. Though I didn’t have the original paperwork or box, DEJB were open and interested in working with me. Paula Dabney was EASY, accommodating, knowledgeable and comforting during the process. The initial price she quoted me was the price we ultimately agreed on after inspection. The process was quick and efficient and any concerns or questions I had were answered promptly all along the way. I’d recommend checking out these folks if you’re interested in selling watches and jewelry.
I’m so happy that I found this amazing jeweler! The easiest and fastest transaction I’ve had. I sold my Cartier Roadster to them in 24 hours I had the money wired into my account. They are pleasant and honest people who will take good care of you! I highly recommend them!
I had an outstanding experience dealing with Paula to sell a watch. Professional. In every aspect of the transaction, Paula was clear, accurate, knowledgeable, and very pleasant to deal with. I found this business through reading other reviews and decided to try. I’m writing to add my voice to the many who have had a great experience with DEJB. I will look no where else for future transactions – I recommend you do the same and contact them first.
It was a pleasure working with owner Carl Blackburn. He bought a diamond from me and the process went as smooth as I could have ever imagined. I contacted his company via the website, sending him the diamond's specifics. He quickly returned with an offer. He then sent a FedEx Overnight label via email. The diamond was in his office the very next day and he immediately contacted me saying he needed a few hours to evaluate my diamond. Then he called me. We talked about the qualities of my diamond. Carl was very honest and kind. I agreed with his evaluation and he wired me the money. It was in my bank the very next day! I highly recommend.
I had never sold anything online before, so was a little nervous about selling my Rolex. Based on Yelp reviews, I visited DEJB’s website and was pretty impressed. Worked with Paula to text some pics and got an estimate within hours. I got estimates from three other places and DEJB was right in line with two others, but was a touch higher. Based on the great customer service, I went with DEJB. Once I said I was in, Paula got me the prepaid, secure, insured shipping information within hours. Once received, they let me know my Rolex was as described and wired the full amount immediately. What else can I say? Fast, secure, friendly, fair – what more can you ask?
Paula was so great to work with! Very professional, and they offered the best price for my Rolex GMT II (over 2 other watch companies that buy used time pieces). No bait and switch here—take good photos of what you are selling and give them as much detail as you can so they can offer you the correct amount to start with. No surprises.
