Grading and appraising an OEC 3 stone diamond ring prior to selling
Quote this post and reply to it Post#1 @ 08-21-08 , 01:59 PM


Three oec diamonds (1.12ct - 2.12ct - 1.12ct) in a yellow gold ring (platinum baskets) need to be graded and appraised before I sell.
(I got a quickie appraisal in a jewelry store years ago with stones set in place - it was a cheap appraisal and nothing to be used for serious buyers)

Will GIA evaluate the OEC diamonds for the 4 C's?
(I'm most concerned with getting "Cut" quality grading)

Will GIA appraise the stones for pricing or is this done by a retail jeweller/ gemologist?

What's the approximate cost for these services?

Let me know from your experiences!!!

GIA will grade your diamonds and give you a diamond report (The report is worth it's weight in gold) You will need to send loose stones and it wouldn't hurt to have the diamonds laser inscribed with the GIA number IF the quality is good enough (this would be like having a title to your car when you go to sell)
Prices for the services are IMO good.......and go by diamond size (do a search for GIA on the net)
