When you want to sell your diamond jewelry, you can trust Laferrière & Brixi to make the process simple, transparent, and confidential. We have been purchasing loose diamonds and diamond jewelry for over two decades and we are uniquely qualified to evaluate your items and offer you fair and competitive prices.

During our meeting, we will assess your jewelry and highlight the possibilities open to you and answer your questions. If we are interested in buying your diamond jewelry or stone, we will make you an offer, and if you accept, payment will be made immediately via company check or wire transfer.
Whether you wish to sell one single diamond or numerous pieces of jewelry, we will take the time to evaluate each item individually. We appraise various diamond rings, bracelets, necklaces, broaches, or earrings. It is possible that we will need to remove the main diamond from the mounting in order properly determine its weight and various characteristics. This will be done only with your prior consent. All our appraisals are done in front of you in the comfort and tranquility of one of our highly secured offices.

How is value determined
Whether you are selling one diamond ring or several pieces of diamond jewelry, each item will be evaluated individually. The main drivers of value are 1) the quality of the diamond(s) as determined by the “4 C’s” (cut, colour, clarity and carat size), 2) the metal content and weight and 3) the maker of the piece (Cartier, Harry Winston, Tiffany, Van Cleef & Arpels, etc). These factors are then benchmarked against current domestic and international market conditions and demand.
Because each region of the world has its own specific diamond quality combination preference, certain diamond jewelry pieces can be more appealing and yield higher value in overseas markets than domestically. Our market knowledge as diamond buyers, extended client base and broad international network of dealers, enables us to take advantage of these differences and offer the best value for our clients.
