If I decide to borrow against my diamond ring, how much could it be worth?
Expensive Diamonds are arguably the world’s most famous and desirable precious stones. They’ve been used decoratively for thousands of years, making any kind of diamond jewellery a real classic accessory. Diamonds are priced according to the ‘four C’s’, which are carat, clarity, colour and cut. Although diamonds are always considered a luxury and are typically high in price, value at auctions and pawn shops varies widely depending on the gem’s quality. In 2018, the world record for the highest-priced pink diamond (per carat) at auction was broken. It was Christie’s that sold this particularly rare piece, a diamond named ‘The Pink Legacy’ that went for more than $50 million. Boasting 18.96 carats and exceptional purity of colour, it’s a much sought-after collector’s piece.
However, diamond rings that are smaller than one carat can be purchased for less than £600, meaning it’s essential your piece is valued for loans as accurately as possible, by professional pawnbrokers. To secure the highest loan value on your diamond rings, book an appointment with New Bond Street Pawnbrokers.
Is there anything I should know before I pawn my diamond ring?
When estimating the value of diamond rings like Cartier, Van Clef & Arpels, Boucheron, Graff and others, it’s beneficial to know more about how the ‘Four C’s’ affect the amount your piece can reach at pawn shops.
Diamonds that are completely colourless are particularly rare, as light passes through them more easily, which results in a more vibrant, sparkling effect. Most diamonds that appear colourless actually have varying shades of white or yellow within them. If a diamond is noticeably coloured, for example in green or blue, then it’s likely to be very valuable and rare, similarly to completely colourless stones – implicitly, the ring it is mounted on will be valued higher at pawn shops.
An expertly cut diamond reflects light at a much more effective angle than one that is poorly cut, making the gem much brighter. Classifications range through from ideal, excellent, and very good to good, fair, and poor.
When pawning your diamond ring you should know that the majority of diamonds will have flaws, which can take the form of blemishes or inclusions. Blemishes are surface imperfections, taking the form of scratches and chips, and inclusions are deeper within the stone, which include air bubbles and impurities. The higher the clarity of the gem, the greater the loan value.
A carat refers to how much a diamond weighs, and larger diamonds are often valued at higher prices. However, ultimately it is a combination of all the above factors that determines a piece’s final price.
