Why CIRCA is the best place to sell your diamonds online
Deciding to sell your diamond online can raise some concerns. You’ll find many claiming to buy diamonds, but how do you trust what you see on the internet? For over 20 years, clients have trusted CIRCA to offer the best value and secure services when selling their diamonds and diamond jewelry. If you’re thinking about selling your diamond online, here are some considerations before you get started.
Selling your unwanted diamonds is an eco-friendly way to fund the things that bring you joy - a vacation, a shopping spree, or a direct deposit into your bank account. When you want to part with the jewelry you no longer wear, selling your diamonds online can be convenient and rewarding.
But is selling a diamond online safe? While you may have some initial reservations, selling your diamond online to a reputable company will alleviate those security concerns. Choose a company with industry authority, experience, and trusted expertise. Here are some other tips for the best way to sell your diamonds online.
Sell your diamonds online safely
How can I sell my diamond safely online? Sending a diamond through the mail is the number one concern people have when contemplating an online sale. What if the package gets lost or stolen? Can the buyer claim they never received it? Is the package fully insured, both in transit, and through the final sale? What about if I don’t sell? Is it still insured on the way back? Are there hidden costs? A reputable company will provide a guarantee for the insurance value of your package, and insure it all the way through the process, which should provide you peace of mind.

The best online diamond buyers are trustworthy and transparent
Your decision to sell diamond jewelry should be free from pressure and confusion. One of the best sources for checking the legitimacy of companies is the Better Business Bureau (BBB).
Businesses that have BBB Accreditation have proven to be honest, responsive, and transparent. Look for this accreditation in an online diamond buyer and visit their BBB page to see the company rating and reviews before you sell your diamond online.
Affiliation with other trusted partners (such as Blue Nile or the Gemological Institute of America) could also be helpful to ensure trust in the online diamond buyer you are considering.
Understand the terms of selling diamond jewelry online
Bad experiences happen when expectations aren’t met, so it’s best to know the terms beforehand. If the company is facilitating a sale of your diamond to an individual, what is the commission? If you ship your diamond and want it returned to you, do they hold it until you pay a fee?
The most trusted diamond buyers are those that make the process simple and straightforward. Hidden fees and shipping charges should be a red flag and a reason to read the fine print further.
Read online reviews from others who have chosen to sell diamonds online
Online reviews can increase confidence in a company or hold them accountable for poor service. Review sites include BBB, Trustpilot, and Facebook.
When reading reviews about the best place to sell diamond jewelry online, be wary of the outliers and use the ratings as a gauge and comparison tool. Research shows that people put more stock in negative reviews than positive ones, but the harshest reviews can be the least helpful in evaluating a service. Reviews about pricing should be taken in context. Intelligent sellers recognize that there can be a significant difference between the price when buying and the price one sells for. Harsh reviews about pricing can be posted at the ire of someone who has just received bad news about the value of their purchase. Instead, consider service, trustworthiness and transparency. You can make your own decision about whether the price offered is competitive or one you should consider.
Know your diamond
There is much more to a diamond than its shape or carat weight. Knowing its characteristics – including the 4Cs and more - can be helpful when you’re looking to sell your diamond online. A Diamond Grading Report can be particularly useful when you’re looking to sell because a diamond buyer can typically provide an offer range by using the details provided on the report.
If you don’t have a Diamond Grading Report, you can contact a laboratory such as the GIA. However, these reports aren’t necessary to sell; a trained expert can provide a value for your diamond after a physical evaluation of the gemstone. Should you decide to sell your diamond online, look for companies who employ gemologists.
