How to sell

Questions will always arise from prospective clients regarding liquidity: They want to know how resaleable their diamonds are when they are ready to sell.

Rare Fancy Color Diamonds are incredibly liquid and sold in most major cities worldwide

One contributing factor and advantage is that they can be moved quickly, quietly, legally, and sold worldwide because there are thousands of participants in the market, from collectors and investors to dealers and jewellery buyers. However, colored diamonds are similar to real estate in that finding the appropriate buyer can take time. There is no centralized exchange or market where most transactions occur, making it decentralized. When you’re ready to sell, begin the process at least 90 days before you require your funds, this will allow you, your dealer, the auction house, and any other parties with whom you’re working the best opportunity of finding the proper buyer. Colored diamonds are akin to real estate in this regard.


Due to the greater exposure to a broader range of possible buyers that auction houses provide, auction houses are often the preferred mode of sale for realizing total market value. While auction houses specialize in one-of-a-kind items, they also handle more reasonably priced items with intrinsic rarity and natural beauty, such as uncommon pink diamonds. These scarce diamonds also sell exceptionally well and have proven to sell considerably above expectations. In addition, they accept minimum offering prices of USD 5,000-10,000, with top lots selling for millions of dollars. As a result, they provide an attractive selling avenue for investors at all market levels.

Depending on the value of the sale, auction houses will charge a percentage of the selling price. The smaller the commission payment, the greater the selling price. This commission is generally flexible and can range from 0 to 10%. However, auction houses benefit from gaining exposure that attracts purchasers thanks to their massive list of wealthy clientele and global marketing activities.

Also worth noting is that auction houses large and small have made great strides in making auctions more accessible to a broader range of investors in recent years. As a result, experts agree that auction sales will continue to increase as new buyers across the globe learn to appreciate the distinctiveness and beauty of colored diamonds.

Another great way to sell is to use our dealing services. As your dealer, we have extensive databases of clients with whom to work and often know which clients may be in the market for a particular type of stone.
