Color Fancy Yellow - Question For Davide

Recommended Posts

Hi Everyone,

Ruby, I'm the guy that does the photos and videos, I work for...my wife:)

 

Seriously regarding Opal-

Here's my thoughts:

I personally don’t think an appraisal- any appraisal- is of any value to you in selling a diamond like that.

If a buyer wants to have it appraised they are far better off having their own evaluation and a lot of buyers understand this

 

Furthermore it looks like you have the GIA product that includes sealing the diamond for the buyer to open.

Any appraisal of worth would involve removing the diamond from that capsule.

 

As far as evaluation: Here's a good stone to use for comparison

2.03 which I grade I1- the GIA report is color only

Your stone is round which can, in some instances be worth more than a cushion- but I don’t think this is one of them.

Brown, or even subtones of brown in particular is more common in round diamonds. Therefore a "pure" yellow or green round can be worth more than a cushion of the same size and color.

but once there's brown, it's not the case. Generally.

Then we have to factor in who is selling.

My diamond is $5345 purchased from us with a money back guarantee.

On eBay?

$3500???

Maybe more - but likely not.

That would be the cushion I use as a comparison.

Your stone is I3 - that's going to make it a tougher sale.

 

I hope you don't have a whole lot invested in relation to these amounts, and wish you the best of luck with your sale.

if you want to send us the $100 my wife will just use it for more "personal" jewelry, so save it.

Thank you for your input. I think you are right. I will just let the market decide on the value.

I will try EBay with a reserve price I feel I am happy with.

 

If it hits my reserve, I'm happy and good enough and just let the online market price it for me.

 

I am not in the business and do not have a store where I can sell it for higher price. I just want to sell all my parents stone and get back some cash.

Again, thank you, you saved me some money.

 

RULE of Economic

Supply and Demand.

I will let the demand set the price for me.

You have just given him one, and that's the answer to his question, so it clearly is of value... :)

Excellent point Davide!!

I stand corrected.

Opal- using eBay to set a price is a very bad idea IMO.

IOW- something bid up to $2k today might get bid up to $3k tomorrow. It's very uncertain

Id suggest setting the sell price at the lowest you will accept.

 

It is a shame you need to sell it= there's no way someone in your family might want it?

Thank you everyone for the input. I will ask around my relative first before I post on eBAY

I am no hurry to sell it anyway, and since the diamond is SEALED by GIA. even if the GIA Report is a bit out of date it will be fine because the diamond have not been touched if the SEAL is not broken.

 

I am assume that the case...why people want up to date diamond report
