At Diamond Exchange Houston we receive calls almost every day from a customer who might be interested in getting an appraisal done on their engagement ring. Our response is always- “are you interested in getting the appraisal for insurance purposes or are you interested in possibly selling your engagement ring”?

There are 2 types of appraisals that you have a choice in. You can get an appraisal done on your engagement ring because you are interested in having paperwork to keep or turn in to an insurance agent to obtain insurance. Or, you might want to know the value because you might be interested in selling your engagement ring. In both instances, Diamond Exchange Houston can help and point you in the right direction. To get started simply fill out our contact form or call us today at 281-623-1105.

    Factors Affecting the Value of Your Engagement Ring

    When it comes to an engagement ring appraisal in Houston, several key factors can influence the value of your ring. It’s important to understand these factors so that you can have a better idea of what to expect during the appraisal process. Here are some of the main factors that can affect the worth of your engagement ring:

    • The Size and Quality of Diamonds: The size and the quality of the diamonds in your engagement ring is the most significant factor in determining its value. The “Four Cs” – cut, carat weight, color, and clarity – are the standard criteria used to evaluate the quality of diamonds.  The Diamond Exchange is a diamond buyer in Houston and the main thing we focus on when we evaluate jewelry is the main diamond.  The large center diamond gives the majority of the value of the engagement rings we purchase.
    • Metal Type and Weight: The type of metal used in your engagement ring and its weight will also affect the value. Most engagement rings are made from either gold or platinum.   The weight of the metal is also important because gold and platinum are priced by their weight. A ring with more gold or platinum will typically be worth more.

    The Engagement Ring Appraised Value:

    There are 2 different types of values for your engagement ring. There is the appraised value and then the value that a diamond jewelry buyer is willing to actually pay for your engagement ring. Here at Diamond Exchange Houston, the main product that we offer here is our engagement rings. Often times we might sell an engagement ring for $5,000, however, when we get it appraised it will often appraise for a whole lot more…. like $12,000! The appraisal that is done by a 3rd party GIA graduate gemologist will indicate the “retail replacement value”.

    Diamond Exchange Houston offers amazing deals on engagement rings that are often priced at wholesale value.
    Just because there is an appraised value number listed on your appraisal does not mean that someone will buy it at that price. When we buy diamonds at Diamond Exchange Houston we will pay less than the wholesale price of that engagement ring. We offer FREE estimates to customers that might be interested in selling diamonds and engagement rings.

    Gili, Mariana and their team are really wonderful. My husband said they were very helpful and patient in helping him pick the perfect diamond necklace for my birthday. The necklace is simply perfect and dainty - just my style.

    I had the pleasure of working with Gili to replace my lost engagement ring. He was very helpful and transparent throughout the entire process. In just a 2 week turnaround I had a new beautiful ring! I get so many compliments and most importantly I’m one happy wife. Thank you Diamond Exchange Houston for making the best of an unfortunate situation. I highly recommend their expertise for quality diamonds!

    I had a wonderful experience at Diamond Exchange Houston. It’s not your typical jewelry shop. It has more of an intimate feel than what you normally get at most jewelry places. Gili had an array of knowledge on engagement rings. He took his time to educate me on engagement rings while helping me find what I was looking for. Definitely recommend this place if you’re in need of a ring.

    My husband and I went to just look at upgrading my wedding set for our 30th anniversary. We ended purchasing. I do not have enough words to express how happy I am. Gili and his staff are so professional and welcoming. Gili listened to what we wanted, explained different cuts and colors and let us compare many stones. He was patient and understanding with any changes we wanted to make. It was an awesome experience and HIGHLY recommend him. He designed a perfect ring for me, I LOVE it!!
