Hi there,

I’m no expert, but my thought would be even though the diamond is of good size and quality, chances are any jeweler/pawn shop just will buy it for the gold weight. That may be why its a lower number than you were expecting.

 

Even though diamonds sell for a lot, they unfortunately don’t have much resale value. Honestly, I think your best bet would be to sell it through Ebay or Craigslist. I’m sure thats not ideal, but a non-jeweler would probably be willing to pay more, since the specs on it are good.  Loose diamonds of similar quality are about $2200 on blue nile, but again thats the retail price. I think you could probably get $500-$750 on it, depending. Probably less if its craigslist. I hope this helps.

Try exboyfriendjewelry.com Or IDoNowIDont.com , you might be able to sell it there for closer to what it’s worth. Good luck!!

@llm1210:  was also about to suggest exboyfriendsjewelry: both my cousins and me had great sales there (and found other stuff we liked!)

It is really tough to resell jewelry.  Lots of places will only pay you for the gold!

I would suggest diamondbistro.com. Pricescope.com has a forum as well where you can post jewelry for sale!

I sold a RHR to a pawn shop for $30 (bought for $300), next time I had a ring to sell I put it in a garage sale and it got STOLEN.  I have had ZERO luck re-selling jewelry.
