So you have some loose diamonds laying around the house or maybe some diamonds attached to some jewelery and you either way to sell them or you just at least want to know how much they are worth. Assessing the value of diamonds is simply known as Diamond Valuation.
Diamond Valuation is important for anyone that wants to sell diamonds and it is also good to check that your diamonds are the same ones you bought previously. I'm sure you have heard of the stories of many people swallowing diamonds. Yes this happens but when it does, usually the person switches the diamonds for fake ones while they have ingested the real ones into their stomach. Many people when they get diamonds valuated sometimes also get ripped off in the process.
This is why whenever you get diamonds valuated, you should do it with a company that has a reputation of quality assessment and obviously has enough trust not to try to steal or switch your dimaonds with a lesser quality. In smaller diamond shops where they offer diamond valuation this unfortunately does happen.
It is also another good reason why you should learn how to assess and identify your diamonds. There are plenty of tutorials and videos on youtube from diamond experts that offer advice. They also expose how shops can use sneaky techniques to switch your diamond with a lower quality one while obviously trying not to get caught. Thankfully there are people out there that do their own sleuthing to catch these people doing criminal acts.
With diamond valuation you can ship your diamonds in the mail for a quick valuation and if you like what you see, you get money back in the form of a check. These checks are usually sent to you by Fedex with their offer being within 24 hours to get your money. That is some fast turnaround time.
Sure enough we did our own testing with the diamondvaluation.com website and on 3 different tests they offered us market valued prices for our diamonds and sure enough, it was always higher than any of the 3 stores we went into.
It helps to get references and it is equally important to do your homework when looking up a diamond company to do business with. Most of the time you are in safe hands but use your friend google to do searches on a company and you'll want to look out for either complaints of any kind, or maybe you'll find no complaints or better yet praise.
