COLORED STONES
Colored diamonds or fancy colored diamonds can range from Violet, Blue, Green, Yellow, Orange, Red, or Pink. All these different colors vary in hue, saturation, and tone giving them more or less value depending on the color.

Selling colored diamonds or fancy colored diamonds can be difficult. Most jewelers do not have the education, capital, or market for colored diamonds. Considering that .1% – .2% of all jewelers even deal with colored diamonds, it shows just how rare they can be. At Green Hills Jewelry and Loan, we not only understand what your colored diamonds are worth, but have the necessary means to give you the best value.

DIAMOND BASICS
The Four C’s
Cut

The cut of a diamond does not actually refer to the shape of the diamond, whether it is round, princess, oval, etc. It actually refers to how the diamond was cut from its raw shape. The way a diamond is cut affects the amount of light that is reflected through its facets and how much of that light returns back out through the top, thus affecting the amount of “sparkle” or brilliance of the diamond.

The cut also determines how big the table (top part of the diamond) appears. Two diamonds with the same carat weight (see “Carat” section below) might not always look the same. A deep cut has a smaller table while a shallow cut has a larger table.

Color

Did you know that diamonds naturally come in every color of the rainbow? The diamonds used in jewelry, however, typically fall in the white range and are graded on a scale from D to Z – the less color the better. To the naked eye, most diamonds appear “colorless,” or white, but a majority of them actually contain hints of yellow or brown.

Clarity

The clarity of a diamond refers to the amount of blemishes and marks that can be seen within a diamond. Sometimes the way a diamond is cut, can determine the visibility of such flaws,and it affects the grade given on the diamond’s certificate, which is measured by a third party organization such as Gemological Institute of America (GIA). A diamond free of inclusions is very rare. Therefore, the closer a diamond is to flawless, the better and more expensive it is.The clarity of a diamond refers to the amount of blemishes and marks that can be seen within a diamond.

Carat

A diamond’s weight is measured in carats and used with a point system of 100. A diamond of 25 points is .25 carats. Not all diamonds with the same carat weight are of equal value. The value is measured by the combination of its cut, color, clarity, and carat weight.

LUXURY WATCHES

Many factors are considered when appraising a watches’ value: condition, rarity (limited edition), materials, brand, and current trends all play a part into the value of any watch. Click the button below for a free quote/pawn or keep reading to find out how to get the most value for your watch.

Documentation

Be sure to keep any and all certificates and original packaging for your luxury brand watches. This will help us to verify its authenticity and ownership, along with keeping your watch safe and in good condition.

Service

Keeping your watch in great condition is the key to selling your luxury watch at its highest value. Check up and service done to the watch can help keep it running smoothly. Be sure to include any receipts from any services the watch received to help us get you the most amount of cash possible.

Supply and Demand

The value can also be estimated using supply and demand. When a name brand watch in good condition has low supply but high demand, the worth significantly increases compared to a name brand watch in poor condition.

GOLD

Gold jewelry can be valued by looking at 3 different factors: purity, weight, & condition. Purity is measured in karats, which is the amount of gold relative to other metals in the piece. The highest purity of gold is 24 karats meaning it is 100% pure gold. Lower karat numbers reflect the higher amounts of other metals alloyed with the gold. This contributes to the overall value of the piece.
When selling gold, it is helpful to have it in as pristine a condition as possible. Gold is a very malleable mineral, and it can be easily dented or scratched if not kept safe. When trying to sell gold as scrap, dents and scrapes do not diminish the value too much because we are more concerned with the weight and purity. However, when selling gold pieces of jewelry, or limited edition, luxury/name brand, or rare gold pieces, the overall aesthetic of the jewelry will significantly affect its value.

SILVER

Valuing silver is similar to valuing gold. The value of silver can also be determined by its fineness, weight, and condition. However, when valuing silver as scrap or just as a precious metal, and not in a jewelry piece, its fineness is measured in troy ounces. The higher the percent, the more value or worth the silver has. Most silver in jewelry however is at the Sterling Standard which is around .925%. Since pure silver is too soft to make objects with, it is alloyed with copper to give it more strength and to be molded into jewelry pieces. Here at Green Hills Jewelry and Loan we buy silver and silver jewelry of all levels of fineness, shapes, and sizes.

PLATINUM

Platinum is actually the rarest out of all the precious metals. It can be difficult valuing platinum as it is very hard to find, and sometimes difficult to calculate its fineness. That is why we have made the selling process of your platinum very simple and easy for you.
Platinum’s fineness is measured as a percentage by a three digit number call Millennial Fineness. For example a piece of platinum or platinum jewelry that is valued at 900 is also consider 90% pure platinum. Most jewelry is made with 90% – 95% pure platinum but it can range from 750 all the way to 999.5.
