Selling your Diamonds


How do you determine what my jewelry is worth? +

The value of a diamond is primarily derived from the evaluation of 4 characteristics: colour, clarity, cut and carat weight. Metal is weighted separately and priced by type (Gold, Silver, Platinum) and quality (10k, 14k, 18k).

High demand designer jewelry, antique & rare jewelry pieces from renowned jewelers like Cartier, Van Cleef & Arpel, Harry Winston will drive higher prices than the intrinsic value of their component.

Do you pay the same amount stated on my insurance report? +

No. The main purpose of a Jewelry Appraisal is to provide a product description and a high retail replacement value for insurance purpose only.

This does not necessarily reflect the prevailing market price. Also, our offers are based on the wholesale prices for similar items and not the retail price for the end consumer.

How can I make sure I’m getting the best price for my jewelry? +

We strive to have the most competitive prices and encourage potential sellers to seek alternative offers. Our expert diamond buyers have over 30 years of combined professional diamond buying experience and we have one of the most sophisticated gemological laboratories in the country.

Our stellar reputation and unparalleled network of potential buyers insures you get the most for your jewelry. These include diamond wholesalers, jewelry manufacturers, retail jewelers, auction houses and private individuals.

How long does it take to make an appointment? +

We try to be as fast and flexible as possible to set-up an appointment at the date and time that is convenient for you.

We have two easily accessible and highly secured offices in the Montreal area.

Same day appointments are possible, contact us first.

Do I need to make an appointment, or do you accept walk-ins? +

No. We do not accept walk-ins under any circumstances. Please call or write first to schedule an appointment.

Do you send my jewelry outside to be appraised? +

No. We have complete in-house gemological laboratories. All appraisals are done in front of you in the security and comfort of one of our offices.

How do you pay? +

We pay via company check or wire transfer.

What happens if I don’t accept your offer? +

Nothing. We provide a professional, pressure free environment.

How long does it take to get paid? +

Checks are redeemable immediately.

Do you need to remove the diamond from the mounting? +

Yes, we will remove the diamond from the mounting. To obtain a firm offer and insure you get the most value for your diamonds, it is preferable to inspect them loose. Only then are we able to properly determine or confirm your diamonds classification. This process is done in front of you in the security and comfort of one of our offices.

How long does it take to have my jewelry appraised? +

Depending on the number of items you have, it generally takes between 15 to 30 minutes to complete the appraisal and make you a final payment offer. The whole process is done in front of you in the privacy and comfort of one of our secured offices.

Do you buy gold? +

Yes, we purchase various types of gold jewelry in 10k, 14k, 18k and 22k.We also purchase gold coins and bars from the Royal Canadian Mint or other reputable manufacturers.

Do you buy all types of jewelry even old or broken pieces? +

We buy many types of jewelry but focus on items with single diamonds over 1 carat of any colour or shape, with or without any certification. The fact your jewelry is old or that some pieces are broken, doesn’t make them less desirable to purchase.
