1. Understand The Diamond Quality

Before you decide where to sell the diamond ring, you need to understand the quality of the ring and the diamond you are about to sell. 

So, visit a gemologist, ask them to analyze the diamond, and give you the attributes. If you have a receipt, you can also check for these details. If you do not have a receipt, ask the gemologist to help you understand the diamond quality and other features to get a higher selling price. 

Ask the gemologist to give you a written report about the valuation of the diamond ring. This report will be crucial in the subsequent stages when you have to justify the price and list the features of the mineral to attract a potential buyer. 

2. Know Where To Sell Ring

The first step when selling your diamond ring is deciding on the ideal buyer. 

You can sell diamond ring in-person or list it on online websites. Both are vital when selling a diamond ring. But researching online is essential to clear issues such as prices, the best buyers, and other factors that may affect the prices. 

Let’s discuss these two methods in detail. 

Selling The Ring Online

When listing the diamond ring online, highlight the price you anticipate while focusing on affordability. Once you post it online, you should anticipate many buyers far beyond the neighborhood, and on certain occasions, you can get a potential buyer fast. 

Online platforms are ideal for accessing the desired markets from anywhere, meaning you can interact with buyers from different locations. Social media sites can also be ideal for connecting and selling to interested buyers.

The other online platform to sell and list the ring is digital auction houses. Selling on such platforms will differ from other sites since auction house links you fast to other jewelry dealers; however, the price here is not fixed. You will have to bid the price with the potential buyers and may get less, especially when you need quick cash. 

Selling The Ring in Person to The Jewelry Shop

In-person or jewel store sales can pay higher prices since the dealer will inspect the embedded diamond and pay the best price. The other benefit of in-person sales is that you hardly become a victim of a con artist. 

The other benefit of selling to a jewelry store is the immediacy since you can get instant cash for the ring. If you know the dealer, you can also fetch more for the ring since most dealers would want to benefit more by paying less. 

Before approaching a dealer, consider going to at least three shops and then decide on the best dealer. Alternatively, see someone with expertise in evaluating jewelry prices; based on their valuation, you can argue for the price with the dealer. 

3. Find Alternative Places to Sell Diamond Rings

Besides online and in-person jewelry store sales, you can also sell your diamond ring to other potential buyers. 

If your friend loves jewelry, especially rings, you can sell them the ring. You can also sell to someone in need of a diamond ring for an engagement or a friend of a friend etc. 

Selling to a friend gives you more control over the price you demand, and you can gain more than the jewelry stores would have paid. No need to worry about visiting a gemologist to determine the price; instead, you can price based on the purchase value included in the receipt. 

4. Set a Realistic Price

When selling a diamond ring online or to a friend, the big question is how much to ask for or charge the buyer. You should not set the price too high to the extent one cannot afford it. 

Secondly, a second-hand diamond ring should not exceed the purchase price. 

Therefore, determine the price you bought the ring, then set a fair price to help you make some good cash out of it and attract buyers. The gemologist can help you determine the right price after the inspection process. Just ensure the price is a little lower than the original purchase price.

5. Highlight the Attributes

When selling your diamond ring, you should highlight the features and attributes to create a positive impression on the customers. 

You need to highlight these attributes, especially when selling your ring online or when selling for a friend. If you sell online, attach the pictures for the customers to see and other documents, such as receipts, to show authenticity. 

Also, highlight other attributes, such as the nature of the diamond embedded in the ring and the place where you bought the ring. Consider the key questions you will want to ask a potential seller supposed you were buying the ring. Then answer these questions but list them as attributes or features of the ring. 

6. Compare the Prices

When selling your diamond ring, you should focus on gaining more and making some profits from the venture. This strategy works best when you sell the ring online on auction sites where you can compare different bids and settle for the highest.

If you want to sell it to people you know, inform them about the possible sales, wait for their bids, and decide on the most ideal. You can only compare these prices when you sell the ring to other platforms besides jewelry shops and stores. 


Before you sell the diamond ring, ensure you have documentation such as purchase receipts to prove authenticity. If you do not have the documents, visit a gemologist for a formal appraisal to understand the jewel attributes, such as diamond quality and color. 

With all these details, you can determine the best platform to sell the ring. Some ideal platforms to consider include online platforms, jewel shops, pawn shops, auction houses, or a friend.
