San Diego Jewelry Buyers Publishes Tips on How to Sell a Used Diamond

San Diego Jewelry Buyers has published a list of helpful tips for consumers looking to sell their loose diamonds from gold rings and fine jewelry.

San Diego, CA, December 31, 2008 --( Due to increased consumer interest in the selling of loose, large carat diamonds, as well as rare colored diamonds, (SDJB) has published a list of tips for those who are interested in selling their second-hand diamonds from used gold and platinum rings or other fine jewelry.

“One of the first things is to do an online background check of the diamond buyer who you are considering doing business with,” says Alan Blyler, a spokesperson for San Diego Jewelry Buyers. “This would include checking for any complaints registered with the Better Business Bureau ( and browsing customer reviews on such websites as Yahoo, MerchantCircle, and InsiderPages.”

According to Blyler, consumers should be wary of company reviews if they see a whole bunch posted on the same day. Key things to look for in legitimate reviews are ones that are spread out over a period of time, differing in content and style, and which include concrete details about the customer’s experience.

Another tip included in San Diego Jewelry Buyers’ list for loose diamond sellers is a knowledge building exercise. SDJB advises customers to price a 1.00 Carat F color, VVS1, Excellent Cut diamond at Blue Nile and two other online retailers. Compare prices and then take the lowest one. A diamond buyer will likely pay a customer around 40% of that lowest retail price.

The new list of tips for sellers of used diamonds appears in the Knowledge section of, an area which is dedicated to educating consumers in all areas of selling their second-hand gold, jewelry, diamonds, and elite brand watches. The diamond education area can be found at:
