Diamonds/ Gemstones

close up gold diamond ring in red ring boxOur expert team will offer an appraisal on your item of jewellery, we take into account the below criteria when assessing your item:

  • The Maker – Whether or not the piece is signed, and by whom. Fine makers like Cartier, Van Cleef & Arpels and Tiffany & Co. add significant resale value
  • Material – Whether the item is made of white, yellow or rose gold – or – platinum – and its carat weight, are all significant drivers of valuation
  • Gemstones – If it’s a diamond, the famous foursome of clarity, cut, color and carat is central. We use the Rapaport Diamond; it is an internationally recognised guide. Of course, if you have a certification from the Gemological Institute of America, the European Gemological Laboratory, the International Gemological Institute or the Gemological Association, we take those into account. For sapphires, rubies and other precious stones we welcome certifications from the Swiss Gemological Institute and Gubelin
