How to Sell an Engagement Ring
Common Questions and Answers
1) How do you arrive at a cash offer for my engagement ring?
When you sell an engagement ring to Diamond Estate, we take a variety of factors into consideration during the appraisal process. The quality and carat size of the center diamond is the most important factor.
Other factors include the condition and style of the ring, as well as the manufacturer. If your engagement ring was manufactured by a luxury jeweler such as Tiffany & Co., Harry Winston, or Graff, the demand for the ring will be greater. We thus will be able to pay you an additional premium based on brand value.
2) Can I sell my engagement ring for its retail price?
A fancy yellow diamond engagement ring recently bought by Diamond Estate.
Unfortunately, you cannot sell an engagement ring close to its retail price. The only situation where you might be able to would be if you had recently bought the ring and have a family member or friend who is looking to buy a diamond engagement ring.
Getting a price close to retail isn’t possible when selling your ring to a jewelry buyer, online auction, or fine jeweler. The reason is that the retail price of your diamond ring was likely at least triple the manufacturing cost. This usually holds true even if you bought your engagement ring online or at advertised “wholesale” prices.
Therefore, the current market value (aka resale price) of your ring and/or diamond will ordinarily be around 50-60% of the lowest retail price for your ring. Learn more about how you can calculate the price of the diamond in your engagement ring with our article: Diamond Price Calculators.
3) Can I sell my engagement ring for its appraisal price?
It all depends on the kind of appraisal. You won’t be able to sell an engagement ring for the price listed on a replacement/insurance appraisal or on the appraisal certificate that came with the purchase of your engagement ring. These kinds of appraisals show the retail value of your diamond ring, which (as we mentioned) is at least triple the manufacturing cost.
However, if you have obtained a “market appraisal” of your engagement ring — an appraisal that lists the resale value of your engagement ring — then you often will be able to receive an offer close to that cash price, depending on the accuracy of the appraisal.
4) Can I sell a diamond ring with an uncertified diamond?
Yes, you can sell your engagement ring to Diamond Estate with an uncertified center diamond. And, more importantly, you can still get an excellent price! However, please do let us know if you have a lab report for your diamond. A lab report from a respected diamond lab such as GIA (Gemological Institute of America) will make it easier for us to quickly evaluate your diamond ring and make a cash offer.
5) How can I learn more about the quality & value of my diamond?
At Diamond Estate, we are committed to providing you with the resources and knowledge to sell an engagement ring with complete confidence.
To evaluate the quality of your diamond, you want to learn more about the 4Cs(Carat, Cut, Clarity, and Color), which are the four aspects that impact your diamond’s resale value.
In a nutshell, diamonds that fetch the highest prices have all 4 of the following characteristics:
1. Diamonds with a popular cut (like Brilliant)
2. Diamonds with a clarity grade of VSI or better
3. Diamonds with a color grade is G or better
4. Diamonds with a size of 1 carat or more
To learn more about diamond pricing and how to estimate what a good cash offer will be for your diamond, check out our video below on diamond price calculators.
6) Do you purchase other bridal jewelry?
Yes, you can contact Diamond Estate to sell wedding bands and other bridal jewelry. In fact, we can often get you a higher price for your engagement ring if it is accompanied by a matching wedding band and/or bridal earrings.
7) Is it safe to sell a engagement ring online?
If you are selling your ring to Diamond Estate, it is 100% guaranteed safe. Many of our clients choose to sell an engagement ring online via our “Sell From Home” service. Our online service is convenient, highly secure, and involves no risk whatsoever.
We provide you with free FedEx Overnight shipping and every diamond ring shipped to us is insured to its maximum value by Parcel Pro, a UPS Capital Company which specializes in insuring high-value jewelry, diamonds, and gemstones.
If you decline our final cash offer for any reason, we will be happy to ship your engagement ring back to you at our expense.
8) Can I sell my engagement ring online at eBay?
It is not easy to sell an engagement ring on eBay. In addition to buyers being worried about purchasing engagement rings with synthetic or low-quality diamonds, eBay also places restrictions on new sellers that sometimes makes selling a high-value item like a diamond engagement ring impossible.
If you have a friend who is a long-time eBay seller with a high customer rating, you could try having them help you sell your engagement ring on their account. But, otherwise, selling on eBay is not a realistic option for most people.

Learn About How Diamond Estate Prices its Jewelry & Watch Deals
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!
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!
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.

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.
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.
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!
Let me tell you, Paula was the best she helped me so much with my fathers watches. Money was put in my account as soon as she got the watches. I would recommend this place always thanks for such great service.
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.
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?
Thank you so much Paula for your professional handling of my heirloom diamond. When we first talked on the phone, your totally professional and knowledgeable demeanor regarding the diamond business assuaged any trepidation I had about sending my diamond. I was impressed with the way you shopped my diamond to get me the best possible price. When we agreed on the price the money was wired to my account within the hour. Well done! I will not hesitate to recommend Diamond Estate Jewelry Buyers to my friends and will tell them to ask for you by name!
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.
I was very happy with the service I received with this company and Paula made it very easy for me to follow all directions!!! I would definitely do business here again and recommend them to my friends!!!....Mickie
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.
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
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.
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.

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!
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
I had a wonderful experience selling them my diamond ring. Paula was extremely knowledgeable and helpful. I would definitely do business with them again.
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.
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.
