How much would a half-carat diamond ring be worth?

I have a half-carat diamond ring that I want to sell. About how much might I be able to get for it?

The value of a diamond is based on the 4 c’s – color, clarity, cut, and carat. The only way to tell the value of your diamond is to have it appraised.

One thing for sure is that you will not get as much for it as you (or someone) paid for it.

I got a 3 ct diamond pendant as a gift. It’s a circle with 50 small diamonds all around. How much is it worth?

Hi there

Firstly, do not take your diamond to a ‘standard’ jeweller for a valuation, you need to get someone with diamond expertise to carry out the valuation.

Also note the jewellers typically charge 2 to 3 times the trade price for a diamond, they make huge profit margins. So, their valuation is likely to reflect this mark-up and not what you would actually get if you sold it.

My recommendation would be to visit a diamond trader or a company that works with diamond traders. In the UK I would recommend www.bestdiamonds.co.uk, they know a huge amount about diamonds, provide a lot of helpful information, and give free valuations. There must be similar companies in the US.

As to value a 3 carat diamond; if it looks white and with no imperfections that can be see with the ‘naked eye’, in a round brilliant cut, it is likely to be worth from $20,000 upwards to well over $100,000 for top quality. Key also to note is the size, if your diamond is just under 3 carat (e.g. 2.99) it would be worth a lot less than a 3.00 carat. The smaller diamonds sound very small and would have little value in themselves, however they would need to be seen to verify this.

Check out the site I mentioned and then try to find someone similar near to where you live.

I hope this helps.

1/4 carat is about the perfect size. Size isn’t what really matters though! Clarity,cut and how it is set makes the difference!

How much is a 1.1. carat cut diamond worth?

I have a 1.1 circle cut, good quality diamond. How much would I be able to sell it for, and where can I get the most money for it?

A round 1.1 ct diamond, depending on color and clarity, varies tremendously from $500 to $15,000(wholesale). A top quality diamond’s cost would be about $15,000 wholesale if it were certified F/D quality (flawless/colorless) by GIA. Most diamonds sold in today’s retail stores are SI/GH in quality. An SI-/G-H (slightly included/near colorless) at that size would wholesale for about $3500-$5000. Because of such stiff competition in the jewelry market today, many larger diamonds will sell for as little as 3 percent markup, although retail replacement insurance cost of diamonds are much, much higher than that.
All jewelers buying previously owned jewelry and gemstones look at the price of an item’s wholesale cost then figure the buying cost from that.
Pawn shops will usually buy at 20 percent of the wholesale cost since many pawn shops sell well below wholesale value. Estate jewelers can pay more, but your best bet is to either find a jeweler dealing in consigned jewelry and sell it through them, or get an appraisal from a certified GIA gemologist/appraiser and sell it yourself through craigslist or through your local newspaper. Generally you should expect less than half of the appraisal value when re-selling jewelry/gemstones depending on what type of appraisal is done.

How much carat weight it a two point princess cut diamond?

I am wanting to know how much is a 2 point princess cut diamond in carat weight because I am wanting to buy a pendent with 348 of these on it. They are genuine diamonds and it also has like a 3 point princess cut on the top of the bell. It weighs 1 once and is 14k gold. The price is at $2200.

Diamond have standard measure for weight in carats, and one cart equals to 1/142nd of an ounce, or 1/5th of a gram, which means that there are 5 carats in one gram. However some jewelers like to use the word “point” when describing diamond size. Diamond point is also the measure for diamond weight and is related to carats. One carat is divided into 100 points, which means that 50 point diamond weighs half of carat.

Is there an interest out there for NICE engagement rings for under $1500?

Hi All,

I am doing a little research for my yahoo hosted website.

I was just wondering if there is a genuine interest out there for NICE genuine diamond engagement rings for under $1500.

I know many people are living within the restrains of a tight budget these days, so I was thinking this would be a great section to expand on my website.

Please let me know what you think, I would love to hear your feedback. I have included a sample image.

Oh there is absolutely an interest. I think lots of people are looking for something simple yet elegant. You’d need to make sure that the diamonds were somehow certified. I don’t know how many people would want to make a final decision without seeing the ring first.

What is the length across a 1/2 carat round cut diamond earring measure?

I recently bought some earrings online from Macy’s. They had this
big promotion advertised online and TV. So, I bought some. I’ve seen emerald cut and thought 1/2 carat would be fine for me. Now that I see these 1/2 carat round cut diamond earrings, they seem extremely small to me. They seem like they are not 1/2 carat at all, but I don’t know for sure. I need advice. Help me. ;-)

The measurements may vary. They maybe set deeper in some cases and not seem as big in diameter. You never know. Carat actualy measures weight.
