Not only are diamonds the best friends of ladies everywhere, but they also make the world go round. According to the American museum of natural history, about 80 percent of the diamonds that get mined are used not for jewelry, but for industry! Who knew? Since diamond is the hardest substance in the world, it’s used to cut and refine everything from computer chips to other gemstones. But the majority of the people who have diamonds don’t use them to cut plastic; they have them in watches, necklaces, rings, and bracelets. Diamond jewelry is great, but if you have old unwanted pieces, it can also be a great source of income.

Unfortunately, figuring exactly how much your diamond is worth is not the easiest thing in the world to do. Unlike gold or silver, which trades at a specific market value, the worth of a diamond is not so cut and dry. There is no perfect diamond exchange rate because there is so much variability between different stones. Diamonds are appraised based on criteria that are affectionately known as “the 4 C’s”: cut, clarity, carats, and color. Once a diamond is assessed in these distinct areas, a price can be put on the stone. Thus, it’s conceivable that you could have two diamonds of the same shape, same size, and same color, with slightly different levels of clarity, and they could be worth completely different amounts of money. Given the inconsistency of pricing, diamond exchange can be a tough thing to comprehend. If every stone is different, how can you be sure you’re getting the right price?
