Buying and Selling Synthetic Diamonds

Buying and Selling Synthetic Diamonds

May 07, 2019

  • Merriam-Webster defines synthetic as something resulting from synthesis rather than occurring naturally, especially a product of chemical synthesis. This straight definition of the word synthesis encapsulates the main problem with synthetic diamonds, they are not natural. As such, synthetic diamonds can be, and that is endlessly, produced in factories which have hundreds of synthetic diamonds being produced at the same time. This means these diamonds are very much like anything else made in a factory, cheap and without intrinsic value.

May Birthstone Emerald

May Birthstone Emerald

May 01, 2019

Emeralds are found in many countries throughout the world. The most beautiful emeralds come from Colombia’s Muzo mining region. One of the most famous mines, the Sierra Pelada, or shaven mountain, turned a hill into a mine several hundred meters deep. The Muzo region in Colombia yields rich green colors with depth and scintillation and traditional three phase inclusions. Three phase inclusions are made of water, gas and a daughter mineral. This is to say that Colombian emeralds routinely present an inclusion which is a cavity inside the emerald in which gas, fluid and a solid are found together. These inclusions are invisible to the naked eye and require microscopic examination to reveal them.

Is It Safe to Sell Jewelry Online?

Is It Safe to Sell Jewelry Online?

April 25, 2019

When you sell diamonds online, safety relies greatly on the reputation of the people you are selling to. What if you send them your one carat engagement ring and they say they got a Cubic Zirconia (CZ) or a smaller diamond. This has happened and you need to be aware of exorbitant offers and outrageous claims. You need to document what you are shipping to the potential buyer and you need to make sure that if you decide not to sell to them, they will pay to have your jewelry shipped back to you in a safe way. I will detail the steps to take when preparing a piece of jewelry for shipping:

Understanding a GIA Grading Report

Understanding a GIA Grading Report

April 15, 2019

On the center of the diamond grading report you will find an area called PROPORTIONS. This is a  drawing of the profile of the diamond with dimensions and percentages. This may seem like a foreign language to you but all you really need to concentrate on in this section is the table size expressed in percentage and the total depth of the diamond also expressed in percentage. Smaller tables usually mean more scintillation so a table with 52% will have more scintillation than a table of 60%. Both are pretty and fall under the excellent category, yet one is more sparkly than the other. Below this drawing you will find an area called CLARITY CHARACTERISTICS. This section is a drawing of the top and bottom view of the diamond with marks representing inclusions and external features such as scratches, cavities and natural parts of the diamond skin left over in the polishing process. Use this drawing to guide you while looking at your diamond with a loupe. The inclusions in your diamond are unique to your diamond and can be used to identify your diamond easily. Diamonds with clarity grades of VS2 and above will be very clean and have very few inclusions.

How to Sell Gold in Miami

How to Sell Gold in Miami

March 06, 2019

 In jewelry gold purity is defined by Karat. 24 karat gold is defined as gold which has 24 out of 24 parts made of pure gold. Pure gold is very soft and seldom used for jewelry as it is easy to bend and wears and scratches way too quickly. 18 karat gold, or gold which has 18 parts pure gold and 6 parts of something else, is commonly used to make high end jewelry. 14 karat gold or gold that is 14 parts pure gold and 10 parts something else, is also used to make jewelry as it is harder and more durable than 18 karat gold. Gold is measured in Troy Ounces. The old question what weighs more an ounce of gold or an ounce of feathers is actually a trick question. Gold is measured in Troy Ounces and feathers in Avoirdupois Ounces. There are 31.1 grams in a Troy Ounce and 28.35 grams in an avoirdupois ounce. Therefore the Troy ounce, the ounce of gold, is heavier than the avoirdupois ounce. Conversely, the troy pound is lighter than the avoirdupois pound. Thus making the pound of feathers heavier than the pound of gold.

Four Tips on How to Sell Your Diamond, Part 2

Four Tips on How to Sell Your Diamond, Part 2

February 27, 2019

Another question you should have when finding out how to sell your diamond is: How do you get the most value out of your diamond? The key to getting the most value out of your diamond is time. That is to say that you must be prepared to invest time in doing research, valuing your diamond, and researching jewelers in your area to see who is trust worthy.
  1. Timing in selling your diamond is an important thing. For example if you set out to sell your diamond in November you may get more for it than if you go out in June and try to sell your diamond. This is due to an increase demand during the holiday season and prior months. Market demand for specific fancy shapes can also affect the price you realize for your diamond. In the past year or so, oval shaped diamonds have become very popular. If you have an oval diamond to sell you may get more for it than if it were a pear shape, princess cut or a marquise shape as these are not in great demand at this time.

Other Phenomena In Diamonds

August 29, 2018

There are two types of synthetic diamonds, Chemical Vapor Deposition (CVD) and High Pressure High Temperature (HPHT). Each one of these create a specific type of tell tale sign and the GIA is very good at detecting and classifying diamonds. Synthetic diamonds which are grown by either method differ greatly in their growth patterns from those who are natural and grow inside the earth’s crust. Synthetic diamonds usually exhibit some kind of patter which is obvious and divulges their true origins.

Qualities of a Diamond, Beyond the Four C’s

Qualities of a Diamond, Beyond the Four C’s

August 01, 2018

The Four C’s are all equally important when defining a diamond in an engagement ring. The carat weight of a diamond is the first factor describing a diamond. Diamonds are priced based on weight. It is important that you realize this and see how a diamond that is .96 carat can be significantly less expensive than a 1.05 carat. This is not just because of the added carat weight but also because the pricing scale jumps up at the one carat increment.
