Whatever your current situation may be, you may be looking to sell your diamond ring, and you might not know where to start.
Deciding to sell an engagement ring brings a number of confusing and stressful questions. Who can you trust with your old mementos? Who will give you a fair price for that sentimental piece? How do I get paid to afford a new ring?
At National Rarities, we buy any and all types of diamond rings, regardless of your experience. With so many questions and confusion around the resale of diamond rings, our team of experts are here to make it easy for you to sell your cherished piece.
Here are our top five tips for selling your engagement ring with National Rarities:
1. Prepare Yourself to Sell
Selling a sentimental piece such as an engagement ring is an emotional experience. Every jewelry piece you wear brings forth a memory; especially when the piece is as meaningful as a diamond engagement ring.
Prepare yourself mentally and emotionally to part ways with your diamond ring. Appreciate the memories, hold that moment near and dear to your heart, and be okay with letting go of a piece that once brought you or a family member joy.
2. Find Out What You Actually Have
You might think you know what you have…or you may have no idea. The next thing to do if you are planning on selling your engagement ring is to find out actually what kind of piece you have. At National Rarities, our GIA certified Graduate Gemologists and team of experts will carefully inspect and evaluate your items and contact you with an offer.

Once you know exactly what you have, you can move forward with learning about your offer for your diamond engagement ring.
3. Have Realistic Expectations
In some cases, you most likely will not get hundreds of thousands of dollars for your ring. Keep this in mind while you are preparing to sell your diamond engagement ring. Get excited about the pay off, but before you sell your jewelry, do your research, look at different diamond prices, and have full trust that your appraiser will help you understand the value of your diamond ring. Please also understand the market trends, and that there is a difference between appraisal value, retail value and resale value. At National Rarities, we are more than happy to offer insight on the differences between the three values. Upon doing so, we will inspect your diamond and give you the best option for the highest return.
4. Get an Offer
