    How Much Cash Can I Get for My Diamonds?

    How much cash you can get in exchange for your diamonds will depend on a variety of factors – such as, the condition your diamond is in and what kind of diamond it is. To get a better idea of how much your diamond is worth, you can check it against the ‘4 Cs’, a common set of criteria diamond experts use to value diamonds.

    Value Your Diamonds with The 4 Cs

    The 4cs are a famous set of criteria expert diamond buyers can use to value your diamond jewellery pieces or loose diamonds. The quality of a diamond is determined by:

    1. Cut

    The cut of the diamond itself, how it is proportioned, angled and finished.

    2. Colour

    The colour of the diamond; the whiter the diamond, the higher the value.

    3. Clarity

    How clean the diamond is.

    4. Carat

    The weight of the diamond.

    Our highly-knowledgeable staff will also value your diamonds by using the latest technology. By combining both methods, alongside our years of experience in valuing diamonds, we can guarantee the highest possible price and care is given to your diamond items. 

    By providing us with any certifications or documents, will also help us provide a more approximate value. Yet, we are still happy to allow customers to exchange non-certified diamonds for cash as well as any pre-owned designer jewellery. Simply get in touch to find out more about how you can exchange your diamonds for cash.

    I got a really good price for my diamond ring. Joseph was extremely helpful in giving me the best deal I could get in comparison to other buyers in Hatton gardens. I highly recommend!

    A fantastic experience at YL Diamonds. From initial communication to agreeing a price, Joseph was very amenable and patient. He took the time to speak to me and my partner about how prices were reached and why. This was done in a very unhurried way. He offered a higher price than competitors and there was no pressure. He was also happy to offer advice on some other items I decided not to sell in terms of how to get the best price. I would highly recommend YL Diamonds to anyone looking to sell their jewellery. Thank you so much for such an open and easy transaction.
