Alright guys, for today’s post I’ll be tellin’ you all about Diamond Lighthouse on SS. For those of you looking to sell, this is a must-read.
The DL platform bridges the gap between people looking to sell & pro diamond dealers and jewelers. DL’s expertise in evaluating + understanding market trends is critical for fair business because every diamond is unique.
They’re a trusted member of the Better Business Bureau so the diamonds they broker are secure and safe. They have a flat commission (10% on diamonds over 1 carat) so you know they’ll try and get the most money possible for you. Their sole purpose is to SELL so you know they aren’t offering you the lowest price to make a margin. Instead, they aim to get you the highest bids possible.
Unlike other methods (selling to a jeweler, pawning the piece, etc.), DL provides user access to professional buyers and dealers. When you send your jewelry to DL, you’re connected to a wide network of trusted pros who offer competetive bids. During the process, you have complete (and anonymous) control over your sale! You can choose when and if you’d like to sell through your personal portal.
Selling’s super easy. All you have to do is register online or call 212-776-0003. Gemologists will do a complete evaluation on video and reach out to a network of buyers. Offers will pour in, you’ll agree to a sale, and DL will send you your money. Super simple, right? FYI: they’ll insure your jewelry.
You can also buy on Diamond Lighthouse. Their GIA trained gemologists will report cut, carat weight, color, clarity, and fluorescence. They’ll also share clear images of the product. They’ll post the item on their online marketplace and provide detailed descriptions. If you decide to purchase, you’ll receive a GIA certificate (if one was provided) or any other relevant documents regarding authenticity. If you live in NY, you can always schedule an appointment and review the item in person.
You then place bids. DL will inform you promptly when you’ve been outbid. You can make new bids until the bidding period is over, and DL’ll quickly let you know if you’ve won. Once you’re approved by the seller, you’ll pay for the item by check or bank wire, and the item will be sent to you in 2 business days (shipped via FedEx overnight, fully insured) once payment’s confirmed.
