I paid for my flight to Ghana in 2006 by selling my old diamonds. My situation was somewhat unique and during the process it was not easy to figure out if I was getting a fair amount for what I was selling. I visited several different places and did a lot of research and still walked away unsure about how honest people were being with me.
In my case, the diamonds were from jewelry that I owned that I didn’t really wear anymore but whether it’s the same situation for you, diamonds that were inherited or the heartbreak of a broken engagement, you want to feel like you’re getting a fair and honest deal when you’re giving up something as valuable as diamonds. It’s hard to know where to start so you don’t feel like you’re being ripped off if you attempt to sell your diamonds to a third-party. I wish I had known about Diamond Lighthouse when I sold my jewelry a few years ago.
Diamond Lighthouse was created to give the diamond market an objective and trustworthy intermediary. Their platform bridges the gap between people looking to sell their diamond jewelry and professional diamond dealers and jewelers. Because every diamond is unique, their expertise in evaluating diamonds and understanding of market trends is critical for fair business. They have over 30 years of experience in the diamond trade. As a trusted member of the Better Business Bureau, the diamonds they broker are secure and safe every step of the way. Their flat commission (10% on diamonds over 1carat) insures that they always strive to get the most money for sellers. Ultimately, their efficient and transparent method of brokering diamond sales levels the playing field.
Bain & Company recently released a Global Diamond Report for 2014 which states, “The industry is still opaque and arcane to most market participants”. Diamond Lighthouse are changing that. Diamond Lighthouse.com was conceived by a group of top diamond experts in New York City in order to give the diamond market something it never had, an objective and transparent exchange market that benefits both buyers and sellers.
What’s the difference between Diamond Lighthouse and everyone else out there? They don’t buy diamonds for their own benefit; they help you sell them. Because they don’t buy diamonds for themselves, they aren’t offering you the lowest price to make a margin. Instead, they aim to get you the highest bids possible and as SellMyDiamondJewelry.com points out, “access to diamond buyers that the general public would not usually be able to get their diamonds in front of”.
Unlike the other methods of selling your diamond to a jeweler, pawnshop or “a guy I know”, Diamond Lighthouse gives users access to professional diamond buyers and dealers. When you send your diamond jewelry to Diamond Lighthouse, you are connected to a wide network of trusted diamond dealers and jewelers who offer competitive bids. Throughout the discrete auction process, you have complete and anonymous control over your sale. You can choose when and if you want to sell your diamond through your personal portal.
