If I pawn my diamond ring, how much could it be worth?
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 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 as accurately as possible by professionals. To make the most of loans on diamond rings, book an appointment with New Bond Street Pawnbrokers and avoid losing out.
Is there anything I should know before I pawn my diamond ring?
When estimating the value of your diamond ring, it’s beneficial to know more about how the ‘Four C’s’ affect the amount your piece can reach.
Colour: 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.
Cut: 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.
Clarity: 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 value.
Carat: 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.
