It is true what they say, diamonds are a girl’s best friend for long term-investments, and to be fair they are good long-term investments for anybody. If you have a diamond that is in an outdated setting, and you have a child heading off to college, you already have part of the first year’s tuition in hand. Maybe you were passed down a ring from you aunt’s great aunt Ethel and while you appreciate the sentiment you are never going to wear it. If you sell it to jewelry buyers in Chicago, you can have extra cash for whatever you want.

To Most People Diamonds All Look the Same

Of course you can tell if one diamond is larger than another, but for most people the classifications, grades, and clarity of diamonds are a complete and total mystery. Diamond colors are classified by letters and they range from D down to Z. The more colorless they are the better. Then there is clarity which should not be confused with color.  One of the elements affecting clarity is cracks within the diamond that may only be able to be seen at a magnification on ten times.  Of course everybody always wants to know what carat and weight the stone is.

The Most Important of the Four Cs

Now let’s talk about a diamond cuts and why they are so important. A great cut has a tremendous amount of influence on how the stone is going to sparkle, and that is a stone that will have a better resale value. When a diamond is cut correctly it shines out of the top of the stone which is where you want it to be reflecting. When you go to sell a diamond or any of your diamond jewelry, you will want to be very certain you are dealing with company who has been in the business for enough years to have built up a stellar reputation.
